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.

Brewers' Tyler Thornburg: Records third save against Padres
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Thornburg struck out two in a clean inning for his third save Tuesday against the Padres.

As most expected, Thornburg stepped into the closer's role following the trades of Jeremy Jeffress and Will Smith at the deadline. He owns sharp 2.27 ERA, and most impressively, he has struck out 61 batters in just 43.2 innings. Thornburg induced three swinging strikes on 14 pitches Tuesday night, a sign he possesses the nasty stuff he'll need to succeed as closer.

Brewers' Tyler Thornburg: May see save chances in Milwaukee
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Thornburg may be in line for save opportunities following the Brewers' decision to trade Will Smith and Jeremy Jeffress on Monday.

Corey Knebel is another possible candidate to replace Jeffress, who converted all but one of his save chances during his run as Milwaukee's closer this season. Thornburg has been excellent as part of the bridge to the ninth inning this season, carrying a 59:14 K:BB over 42.2 innings and piling up 20 holds to go with a 2.32 ERA and 0.98 WHIP.

Brewers' Tyler Thornburg: Loses game on crazy play in ninth
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornburg (3-4) faced just one batter in the bottom of the ninth, allowing a leadoff triple to Pirates second baseman Josh Harrison, and watched teammate Scooter Gennett overthrow third base to plate Harrison for the winning run.

Thornburg takes the loss Tuesday despite not actually allowing an earned run, although Harrison's shot nearly left the park before Gennett threw the relay throw into the third base dugout. Thornburg's ERA remains at 2.45 on the season, and Jeremy Jeffress continues to have a lock on Milwaukee's closer role for the time being.
