Pirates' Harrison hits walk-off Little League home run

It pays to hustle out of the box. In the bottom of the ninth on Tuesday betweeen the Pirates and Brewers, Josh Harrison sent a Tyler Thornburg fastball to the wall and starting sprinting.The ball hit the top of the wall and got corralled pretty quickly, but the speedy Harrison slid safely into third base when the relay throw bounced away. JOSH, KEEP RUNNING! He did, actually at that...

NL Central Notes: Thornburg, Mesoraco, Pirates, Cardinals

The Brewers may hold the most interesting chips on the market for relievers, Fangraphs’ Dave Cameron writes. That includes not only Jeremy Jeffress and Will Smith, each of whom have served as the club’s closer in recent years, but also 27-year-old righty Tyler Thornburg, who owns a 2.45 ERA with 12.3 K/9 against 3.2 BB/9 on the year. In fact, Cameron argues that Thornburg is...

Jeffress Isn’t as Good as You Think, Thornburg Is

When Will Smith went down with an injury, the closer’s role went to Jeremy Jeffress. On the outskirts, this made a lot of sense. Jeffress was linked in a number of trade rumors during the offseason, and giving him the primary closer role might increase his trade value. He also throws harder than most Brewers, averaging 96.54 MPH on his fastball last year. Plus, his numbers, in...

Tyler Thornburg Gets Moving

The collapse of the Brewers — the reason why David Stearns has undertaken a deep rebuild — occurred because the farm system stopped producing talent. Virtually every top draft pick from the middle years of Doug Melvin’s tenure either flamed out or was dealt in win-now type trades. As a result, the team placed in the bottom five of BP’s organizational rankings in each year...

Game 27 Recap: Angels 7 Brewers 3

A Tyler Thornburg eighth-inning implosion helped the Angels beat the Brewers on Wednesday afternoon, 7-3. Top Play (WPA): The eighth inning was the disaster inning for the Brewers, as a 3-2 lead became a 6-3 deficit. Mike Trout hit a leadoff home run to tie the game at 3, but Thornburg nearly managed to escape with just that limited damage. With a man on first and one out, Andrelton...

Brewers' Thornburg to DL, Fiers called up

As it turned out, Tyler Thornburg was bothered by something when he struggled to get through his inning of relief Friday night. The right-hander was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with right elbow soreness and will return to Milwaukee to be seen by team physician Dr. William Raasch on Sunday.

When Tyler Thornburg is in a Collage…

…a collage once inhabited by an inning of the Dock Ellis no-hitter—it might be something, perhaps, along these lines: Cue: Crybaby pedal (artwork by J. Lemont) end of that artwork                (They should make things like this for the HR Derby, I say)

Brewers' Thornburg thriving in late-inning bullpen role

MILWAUKEE -- There was no time for Tyler Thornburg to feel sorry for himself. Though he wanted to compete for a spot in the rotation, Thornburg understood why the Milwaukee Brewers were signing Matt Garza to join the starting staff. Now the young right-hander had to find a way to make the big-league roster. "This spring, I really concentrated on doing the things I needed to do to...

Thornburg Makes Brewers out of Spring Training

It would have been difficult to root against Tyler Thornburg this spring training. Viewed as Milwaukee’s best prospect in 2012, Thornburg tantalized in his call-up last season. With the big-league club, the 24-year-old split time between the rotation and the bullpen while compiling a sterling 2.03 ERA and a very solid 1.19 WHIP. It is always exciting for fans to see a top prospect...
