Stone Crabs starter Jake Thompson was placed on the 7-Day Disabled List today with an
ACL tear to the right knee irritation to the right elbow. Thompson exited last night’s game against Jupiter after just two innings on the mound.
To take Thompson’s place on the pitching staff, the Rays have sent Drew Leary to the Stone Crabs. Leary is a 6’3? right handed pitcher from San Diego State University. He has yet to make a professional appearance.
4/29 Correction: Originally MiLB reported Thompson being placed on the 7-day Disabled List with an ACL tear. That information is inaccurate. Thompson was placed on the disabled list with an irritation in the right elbow.
