  • Blue Jays' Trent Thornton: Optioned to Triple-A

    Thornton was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Thornton was called up by Toronto on Aug. 7 and made four relief appearances for the big-league club since then. He struck out six while posting a 4.50 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in six innings but will head back to the minors after Ross Stripling (hip) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list Wednesday.

  • Blue Jays' Trent Thornton: Gets call from Triple-A

    The Blue Jays recalled Thornton from Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday.

    Thornton will fortify the Toronto bullpen after the Blue Jays placed left-hander Tim Mayza (shoulder) on the 15-day injured list in a corresponding move.

  • Blue Jays' Trent Thornton: Bumped back to Buffalo

    Thornton was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday.

    Thornton has spent three separate stints in the big-league bullpen this season, posting a 4.26 ERA in 38 innings overall. His latest opportunity with the team lasted just a week and saw him make just a single appearance. Mitch White was called up to take his place on the roster.

  • Blue Jays' Trent Thornton: Recalled by Blue Jays

    Thornton was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday.

    Thornton was sent down in early July but posted a 1.08 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 8.1 innings over six minor-league appearances since then. The right-hander should serve as a multi-inning reliever in the Blue Jays' bullpen after Max Castillo was optioned to Triple-A on Saturday.

  • Blue Jays' Trent Thornton: Dispatched to minors

    The Blue Jays optioned Thornton to Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday.

    Toronto will swap Thornton out of its bullpen for another right-handed option in Casey Lawrence, who was called up from Triple-A in a corresponding move. After rejoining the Blue Jays on May 31, Thornton appeared in 16 games and turned in a 4.98 ERA and 1.34 WHIP across 21.2 innings.

  • Blue Jays' Trent Thornton: Picks up second hold

    Thornton gave up a hit and struck out one in a scoreless seventh inning Thursday to record his second hold of the season in a win over the Rays.

    With closer Jordan Romano getting a rest, Adam Cimber handled the ninth inning and David Phelps the eighth, opening up a high-leverage setup spot for Thornton as he protected a 2-1 lead. The right-hander is prone to occasional blowups, but he posted a solid 4.08 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 15:4 K:BB through 17.2 innings in June, and his ability to work in a variety of roles should keep him busy in the second half for Toronto.

  • Blue Jays' Trent Thornton: Back with big club

    The Blue Jays recalled Thornton from Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday.

    He'll join the big club ahead of Tuesday's series opener with the White Sox and will serve as a replacement in the bullpen for lefty Ryan Borucki, who was designated for assignment in a corresponding move. Thornton previously made 10 relief appearances for Toronto earlier this season, compiling a 3.52 ERA and 1.30 WHIP across 15.1 innings.

  • Blue Jays' Trent Thornton: Optioned to Triple-A

    Thornton was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday.

    Thornton was part of the Blue Jays' Opening Day bullpen, and he posted a 3.52 ERA and 1.30 WHIP in 15.1 innings over 10 relief appearances. However, he'll head to the minors after Hyun Jin Ryu (forearm) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list.

  • Blue Jays' Trent Thornton: Takes loss Wednesday

    Thornton (0-1) took the loss Wednesday after allowing two runs on three hits across one inning during the Red Sox's 7-1 victory.

    Thornton replaced Blue Jays starter Ross Stripling in the sixth inning and immediately got into trouble by allowing three straight singles. The next batter -- Enrique Hernandez -- hit a two-run sacrifice fly, giving the Red Sox a 3-1 lead, but Thornton was able to limit the damage by retiring the next two batters. After allowing a run during his first outing of the season, Thornton had registered four straight scoreless appearances before getting touched up Wednesday.

  • Blue Jays' Trent Thornton: Clinches bullpen spot

    Manager Charlie Montoyo said Tuesday that Thornton will be part of the Blue Jays' Opening Day bullpen, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Thornton will join Ross Stripling as one of two long-relief options out of the bullpen. The role likely won't lend itself to much high-leverage work, as most of Thornton's usage is expected to come in mop-up situations or in the middle innings. He made 34 of his 37 appearances out of the bullpen for Toronto in 2021 and didn't record a hold or save.

  • Blue Jays' Trent Thornton: Demoted to Triple-A

    The Blue Jays optioned Thornton to Triple-A Buffalo on Monday.

    Toronto will cycle Thornton out of its bullpen for a fresher arm in lefty Ryan Borucki, who was recalled from Buffalo in a corresponding move. Thornton was unlikely to be available to pitch for at least two days after he struck out four and gave up a run in two innings of relief in Sunday's 22-7 win over the Orioles.

  • Blue Jays' Trent Thornton: Back with Blue Jays

    The Blue Jays recalled Thornton from Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday.

  • Blue Jays' Trent Thornton: Optioned to Triple-A

    Thornton was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday.

    Thornton owns an unremarkable 4.60 ERA in 47 major-league innings this season. He allowed four runs on 11 hits in 7.2 innings of work during his latest stint with the team. He'll head to the minors as the Blue Jays clear a spot for Danny Jansen (hamstring) to return from the injured list.

  • Blue Jays' Trent Thornton: Recalled by Blue Jays

    Thornton was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday.

    Thornton served as the 27th man in Tuesday's doubleheader, and he'll remain in the bullpen after he allowed a run on a hit and no walks in one relief inning Wednesday. Right-hander Patrick Murphy was designated for assignment as part of a move to make room for Thornton.

  • Blue Jays' Trent Thornton: Serving as extra man for twin bill

    Thornton was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo to serve as the 27th man for Tuesday's doubleheader against the Angels, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

    Thornton served as the extra man for Saturday's twin bill against Boston but did not appear in either game before being sent back to Buffalo. The right-hander will once again join the Blue Jays' bullpen Tuesday in Anaheim before likely being sent back to Triple-A.

  • Blue Jays' Trent Thornton: Added as extra man

    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.

  • Blue Jays' Trent Thornton: Returns to minors

    The Blue Jays optioned Thornton to Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday.

    The righty appeared in two games after being recalled Sunday, allowing one hit and striking out one in 1.2 scoreless innings. With a 4.58 ERA in 39.1 innings this season, Thornton has pitched well enough to earn future opportunities with the big-league club. Alek Manoah (back) was activated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move Saturday.

  • Blue Jays' Trent Thornton: Rejoins big-league club

    Thornton was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday.

    Thornton is back with Toronto after spending nearly the past three weeks in the minors. The right-hander has a 4.78 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 41:14 K:BB across 37.2 innings this season, and he should be a low-leverage option out of the bullpen for the Blue Jays.

  • Blue Jays' Trent Thornton: Optioned to Triple-A

    Thornton was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo prior to Wednesday's game against the Orioles, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

    Thornton's demotion comes as no surprise, as he's allowed a combined eight earned runs across his last four relief appearances. Newly acquired Trevor Richards will take his spot on the 26-man roster.

  • Blue Jays' Trent Thornton: Rough night in loss

    Thornton (1-3) took the loss Friday as the Blue Jays fell 6-5 to the Orioles, walking three batters and giving up an unearned run in the 10th inning.

    The right-hander tossed only 13 of 29 pitches for strikes as he issued free passes to Anthony Santander, Maikel Franco and Pat Valaika to bring home Baltimore's courtesy runner in the 10th. Thornton is having a rough June, posting a 6.97 ERA through 10.1 innings, but his issues had been with the long ball -- he has allowed four homers this month -- and not control, as he had issued only one walk in June while striking out 13 batters. He figures to remain in a long-relief role until he begins to sort things out.
