Brewers pitcher Tyler Thornburg could become emergency starter
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

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

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.

Brewers' Ash: Henderson, Thornburg 'viable candidates' for bullpen
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Brewers assistant general manager Gord Ash said Wednesday manager Doug Melvin was "pleasantly surprised" after watching relievers Jim Henderson (shoulder) and Tyler Thornburg (elbow) throw bullpen sessions in Arizona, per MLB.com.

Ash called both players "viable candidates" for the bullpen. Both players missed the final months of the 2014 season due to injury. Henderson underwent shoulder surgery in August.

Brewers' Tyler Thornburg thankful to avoid serious injury
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

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.
