Thornton was added as the 27th man for Saturday's doubleheader against Boston.

Thornton should be able to give the Blue Jays length out of the bullpen if called upon in either contest, though he's unlikely to pitch in a high-leverage situation. In 39.1 major-league innings this season, he owns an unremarkable 4.58 ERA and 1.40 WHIP.
