      Blue Jays' Trent Thornton: Strikes out three in no-decision

      Trent Thornton allowed three runs on five hits and four walks while striking out three over six innings in a 4-3 loss to the Mariners on Saturday.Thornton was nicked for a run in the second inning on a Keon Broxton sacrifice fly and then yielded two in the fourth on an Austin Nola solo homer and a second sacrifice fly by Broxton. The 25-year-old has had four good starts out of his last nine, pitching six innings each time and only surrendering five total earned runs. Unfortunately, in the other five starts he lasted only 14 innings and allowed 27 total earned runs. It all adds up to a 5.30 ERA and 1.48 WHIP. Thornton will have a tough test in his next start on the road Thursday against the Dodgers.

      Blue Jays' Trent Thornton: Limits Orioles to one run

      Trent Thornton (4-7) earned the win over Baltimore on Thursday, hurling six innings and allowing one run on five hits and no walks while striking out two.Thornton was coming off a 10-day stint on the injured list with right elbow inflammation but showed no signs of injury or rust, limiting the Orioles to six baserunners on five singles and a hit batsman while tossing 58 of 87 pitches for strikes. He was successful despite missing few bats, as he whiffed only two hitters and induced a mere six swinging strikes. The victory comes on the heels of a pair of rough post-break outings in which the rookie surrendered nine earned runs in 4.1 combined innings. Thornton now carries a 4-7 record along with a 5.23 ERA and 102:45 K:BB over 105 innings and is next scheduled for a road start against the Rays on Tuesday.

      Blue Jays' Trent Thornton: Returning from IL on Thursday

      Manager Charlie Montoyo said Trent Thornton (elbow) would be activated from the 10-day injured list and start Thursday in Baltimore, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.Thornton will end up spending the minimum amount of time on the IL after the Toronto Blue Jays deactivated him July 21 on account of right elbow inflammation. Montoyo's comments suggest that Thornton's elbow responded well to a throwing session earlier in the week, and the brief absence means that the rookie likely won't face any significant restrictions with his pitch count upon returning to action. Thornton will essentially claim Ryan Borucki's (elbow) spot in the rotation after the latter was sent back to the IL on Wednesday.

      Blue Jays' Trent Thornton: Lands on IL

      Trent Thornton was placed on the 10-day injured list with right elbow inflammation.It's unclear when the injury cropped up, but it could help explain Thornton's struggles in his two starts since the All-Star break (0-1 with an 18.69 ERA, 2.77 WHIP and 3:4 K:BB in 4.1 innings). The young right-hander will now remain sidelined for at least the next 10 days. In a corresponding move, Ryan Borucki (elbow) was activated from the IL.
