Stephen Thomas Ridings, a Major League Baseball pitcher for the New York Yankees, was born in America on August 14, 1995. In 2021, he made his MLB debut.
In the eighth round of the 2016 Major League Baseball draft, the Chicago Cubs selected Ridings. Ridings made his professional debut in 2017 with the Cubs of the Arizona League for rookies, making 12 appearances and compiling a 4.09 ERA.
Ridings pitched for the Low-A Eugene Emeralds in 2018 and had a 4.15 earned run average while striking out 44 batters in 34.2 innings across 22 games.
The Cubs dealt Ridings to the Kansas City Royals on March 9, 2019, in exchange for Donnie Dewees. Ridings played 13 games for the Idaho Falls Chukars of the rookie league in 2019 but struggled to a 4-3 record and 5.91 ERA while striking out 88 batters (11 of them starts).
Owing to the minor league season being postponed in 2020 due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Ridings did not participate in any games. Ridings was cut go by the Royals organization on November 4, 2020.
Ridings and the New York Yankees agreed to a minor league contract on January 18, 2021. Prior to being promoted to Triple-A, Ridings spent the first 14 appearances of the season with the Double-A Somerset Patriots, recording an impressive 0.47 ERA.
He pitched a no-hitter on July 21 for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders alongside Reggie McClain and Luis Gil.
On August 3, 2021, Ridings made his major league debut. He struck out three hitters while giving up just one hit. Game pitching duo Brody Koerner and Luis Gil got things going.
Three pitchers making their major league debuts in the same game for the Yankees was something that had only happened once before, on September 26, 1950.
Before being sent back to Triple-A Scranton on August 17, Ridings had five appearances with the big league team, pitching to a 1.80 ERA. On November 19, 2021, the Yankees added Ridings to their 40-man roster for the next season.
