Red Sox's Tyler Thornburg: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornburg agreed to a one-year deal with the Red Sox on Friday, avoiding arbitration.

Terms of the agreement were not available. After notching 13 saves for the Brewers in 2016, Thornburg will be asked to serve as setup man for Craig Kimbrel in Boston this season.

Red Sox's Tyler Thornburg: Success with new arm slot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornburg's season in 2016 was partly influenced by a new, lower arm slot, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports.

Thornburg didn't set out to change his arm slot, but the lower slot came about as the right-handed reliever established a rhythm in his mechanics following an elbow injury. "We never one time talked to him about his arm slot," Brewers pitching coach Derek Johnson said. "It was probably a byproduct of that rhythm and trying to keep everything together and not worrying so much about being on top of the ball as being on time and being behind the ball." With confidence in the elbow, Thornburg started "to figure out things that worked well against hitters and things that didn't." For Boston, Thornburg will work the eighth inning and likely fill in closer when Craig Kimbrel isn't available.

Red Sox's Tyler Thornburg: Traded to Boston in four-player deal
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Thornburg was traded Tuesday to the Red Sox in exchange for Travis Shaw and prospects Mauricio Dubon and Josh Pennington, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports.

The Red Sox had to pay a hefty price to secure the services of Thornburg, who was exceptional in middle relief for the Brewers to begin last season before taking over as the club's closer in the second half. In 67 innings, Thornburg posted a 2.15 ERA (2.83 FIP) while striking out 90 batters and yielding a minuscule .161 batting average against. The right-hander figures to take over as the Red Sox's top setup man and should represent an upgrade in that capacity over the aging Koji Uehara, who became a free agent this winter. Thornburg is entering his first year of salary arbitration, so the Red Sox will be able to keep him under club control for the next three seasons.

Brewers' Tyler Thornburg: Records fifth save against Rockies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornburg struck out two in a perfect ninth to record his fifth save Monday against Colorado.

Thornburg converted his first save opportunity in 12 days and is perfect in three opportunities since the Brewers traded away Jeremy Jeffress and Will Smith. He has allowed just one hit over nine shutout innings in that span with 11 strikeouts against just two walks. Thornburg looks perfectly suited for the closer's role, now the Brewers just have to deliver him some save opportunities.

Brewers' Tyler Thornburg: Notches fourth save with clean ninth
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornburg retired the side in order with a strikeout Wednesday against Atlanta for his fourth save.

This has been easily Thornburg's best MLB season, as he's managed to elevate his strikeout rate and lower his WHIP to elite levels, so the payoff of becoming Milwaukee's closer is well deserved. Indeed, he's been especially sharp since the Brewers dealt their top two closing candidates at the deadline. Thornburg has delivered five straight perfect innings and has allowed one earned run in his last 17 appearances.
