Brewers recall pitcher Tyler Thornburg from Triple-A


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2015) The Brewers recalled pitcher Tyler Thornburg from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Friday to take the roster spot of reliever Jonathan Broxton, who was traded to St. Louis. This is the second time Thornburg is on the major-league roster in 2015.

Thornburg started the year in the Brewers bullpen before he joined the rotation at Colorado Springs in late April. He went 2-7 with a 5.28 ERA in 17 starts for Colorado Springs.


Jungmann, Thornburg among candidates to join Brewers rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) Brewers manager Craig Counsell has still not picked a starter to replace the injured Wily Peralta in the rotation, per MLB.com. However, he is going to make a decision soon.

"It's the names you guys would speculate," Counsell told reporters, who have included Tyler Thornburg and Taylor Jungmann among potential candidates. "We'll decide, I think, by Friday."

Thornburg has gone 0-2 with a 4.45 ERA in six starts since being demoted to the minors. He began the season in the Brewers bullpen.

Jungmann is 1-2 with a 6.90 ERA in nine outings (seven starts) for Triple-A Colorado Springs.


Brewers' Roenicke: Tyler Thornburg needs to find form in minors


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Brewers pitcher Tyler Thornburg will stretch out as a starter for Triple-A Colorado Springs following his demotion Wednesday. However, manager Ron Roenicke said the demotion is as much about getting him on track after struggling in relief, as it is to give the team another potential starter for organizational depth.

“He’s got to get back to pitching the way he should be pitching,” Roenicke said, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “And then, whether you need a starter or a reliever, if he’s lights out pitching as a starter and we think that piece is what we need in the bullpen, (he’ll get that opportunity).

“I told him when he left that it’s not necessarily now that you’re a starter you’ll never come back as a reliever. So for him, I think it’s just giving him a better chance to get back here either way as either a starter or a reliever.”

The velocity on Thornburg's fastball has not returned since being shut down last season due to elbow problems. It played a part in his struggles this season.

“I think he’s completely over (the injury), but the velocity is not what it was,” Roenicke said. “It’s also what we see. Is he throwing fastballs by guys? And then because of that, now your curveball and your changeup are better. He’s got three plus pitches, and he needs to have them all working.

“That’s what he did so well last year at the beginning. He had the good fastball with the life on it that they weren’t catching up to, then they’d try to cheat to catch up and he’s throwing a curveball and a changeup and they didn’t have a chance.”


Brewers option Tyler Thornburg to Triple-A, recall Rob Wooten


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) The Brewers optioned reliever Tyler Thornburg to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Wednesday. Reliever Rob Wooten was recalled to take his roster spot.

Thornburg allowed 13 runs (six earned) on 16 hits (three home runs) and three walks in 9 2/3 innings. He had eight strikeouts.

Wooten allowed five runs on eight hits (three home runs) and one walk in 6 1/3 innings for Colorado Springs. He had 10 strikeouts.


Brewers pitcher Tyler Thornburg ready to bounce back this year


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2015) After avoiding Tommy John surgery last season, Brewers pitcher Tyler Thornburg is ready to contribute this season, reports the Journal Sentinel. Thornburg underwent platelet-enriched injections to help repair his injured pitching elbow in 2014. 

“I can’t say it has been a stress-free road,” said Thornburg, who was informed Tuesday he had claimed a spot in the Brewers’ bullpen. “Throughout this entire process, it has been day to day as to whether I’d be healthy the next day.

“Even moving into spring training I didn’t know how my arm was going to bounce back. I had 10 months off or whatever. That’s a lot of time. And what I was going to be doing was kind of day to day, whether I was going to be a long guy, a one- or two –inning guy, a starter.

“There’s been nothing concrete about my entire road. It has been an absolute roller coaster and I’m sure it’s not going to stop, to be honest with you.”

Thornburg is slotted to fill a middle-relief role for the club this season. His health has been in question and it has made it difficult for manager Ron Roenicke to determine how he fits.

“The thing with him was waiting long enough to see if he was healthy and how much can we pitch him,” said Roenicke. “That’s still a bit of a question mark. They’re not sure completely. We know right away it’s a tough month to open the season.”

In two starts, nine total appearances, Thornburg finished this spring with an ERA of 4.14.


Brewers release reliever Chris Perez


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(3/29/2015) The Brewers have released reliever Chris Perez , the team announced.

In camp on a minor league deal, Perez pitched in 10 spring games, surrendering three earned runs in 10 innings (2.70 ERA). 

Perez pitched in Sunday's game but left with a right ankle sprain.

With the departure, the Brewers will consider Rob Wooten, Tyler Thornburg and Michael Blazek for their remaining two bullpen roles.


Brewers pitcher Tyler Thornburg still without role as season approaches


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) Brewers pitcher Tyler Thornburg knows he's the utility man of Milwaukee pitchers. He may be used as an emergency starter or long inning reliever when the season begins, but he is still unsure of what his role will be, reports MLB.com.

"I've dealt with it my first three years in the big leagues and this will be my fourth doing that -- just never really knowing what I'm going to be doing," Thornburg said. "But hopefully whatever spot I'm in I'm going to be successful."

Thornburg knows he will have to wait and see how healthy the rest of the pitching staff is for Opening Day.

"It really depends on the health of everyone, the productivity of everyone," Thornburg said. "The way we thought things were going to go last year as far as [Jim] Henderson and K-Rod [Francisco Rodriguez], me being a long guy, a lot of things got switched around really early and you could always see that happening at the beginning of the year every year. If [Brewers manager Ron Roenicke] tells me one role it could very easily be something different the next week."


Brewers pitcher Tyler Thornburg could become emergency starter


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2015) Brewers pitcher Tyler Thornburg is heading into spring training without a defined role with the club. However, he knows he will be utilized wherever and whenever manager Ron Roenicke needs him.

"It's kind of like that blessing and curse of being versatile," Thornburg said. "You never really know what you're going to do, but you're always going to be doing something."

Roenicke said he could see Thornburg emerge as a starter if anyone in the rotation went down.

"If something happens -- and hopefully it won't -- to our five guys, he's a guy who could step in and start for us," Roenicke said.

Thornburg posted a 3-1 record with a 4.25 ERA in 2014 with 28 strikeouts over 29 2/3 innings pitched.

"Honestly, I'm a little nervous/excited to see how the games are, just because I've been out of it so long," Thornburg said. "I don't think anything is going to be any different."


Brewers considering Tyler Thornburg for the rotation


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/22/2015) The Brewers are considering pitcher Tyler Thornburg as a starter, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Thornburg pitched in relief last season, but was shut down in June due to an elbow injury. The team is considering stretching him out this spring. "We know he can do that but we want to make sure if we need a long man he's able to do that," manager Ron Roenicke said. "We've talked about both (starting and long relief)." Roenicke said he won't make a decision until he discusses things with Thornburg first. The club wants to make sure Thornburg is comfortable with the decision, especially since he's coming off an arm injury.

The 26-year-old posted a 4.25 ERA over 29 2/3 innings last year.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Brewers' Tyler Thornburg thankful to avoid serious injury


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/25/2015) Brewers pitcher Tyler Thornburg was lucky to avoid Tommy Joh surgery in 2014. After being place on the disabled list in June, Thornburg was diagnosed with a wrist flexor strain. However, after a few more starts, doctors determined Thornburg injured his UCL. Thankfully for Thornburg, rest and time off was enough to allow the injury to heal.

"I feel great," Thornburg said. "Honestly, the best thing ever was the timing of everything. Right now and I’m very optimistic and if it works out I definitely feel very blessed for not having to go the other route. We had time; that was the biggest thing. We gave it as much time as possible to heal.

"The way we have it scheduled now, I would be ahead of everyone, " he said. "So it’s just in case of a setback, then I would be perfectly on schedule. But what we have planned right now, if I’m not having any setbacks then we can just kind of scale it back a little bit.

Thornburg finished 2014 with a 3-1 record with a 4.25 ERA in 29 2/3 innings.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

"It's just soreness, something that runs down, kind of in the forearm," manager Ron Roenicke said. "Because it had been there for a little bit, they're going to go easy with him. He's in Arizona. They won't play catch yet, but I think shortly he'll be playing catch again."

Brewers' bullpen untouchable right now


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(4/29/2014) Six Brewers relievers combined to pitch six scoreless innings in Monday's 5-3, 12-inning win in St. Louis, the latest superb effort by Milwaukee's bullpen. The pen has a 2.18 ERA, third-best in the majors, and opponents are batting .195, lowest in the majors, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Closer Francisco Rodriguez and Will Smith have yet to allow an earned run, while Tyler Thornburg (0.71 ERA), Brandon Kintzler (1.29) and Zach Duke (1.46) have been lights out too.

"It's unbelievable the job the young guys in the bullpen are doing," said Rodriguez, who is 12 for 12 in save chances. "It's tremendous. ... It's an unbelievable first month. Even though it's still early, I like our chances because (my teammates) are hungry. They go out and compete every single day, which is something I'm proud of."
