Reds' Tyler Thornburg: Undergoes Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornburg underwent Tommy John surgery this week, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Thornburg saved 13 games while posting a 2.15 ERA for the Brewers back in 2016, but it's been a brutal few years for him since then. He's now undergoing his second major surgery in the last four seasons after going through thoracic outlet surgery back in 2017. He's been limited to just 49.2 innings over the last three years, struggling to a 6.16 ERA. The timing of his latest surgery means he'll miss the entirety of the 2021 season. While he should be ready to go around Opening Day of 2022, he'll be a 33-year-old at that point whose last good season came six years earlier.

Reds' Tyler Thornburg: Shifts to 45-day injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornburg (elbow) was transferred to the 45-day injured list Monday.

The move ends Thornburg's season, as he was only just placed on the 10-day injured list with a sprained right elbow Friday. He'll finish the year having thrown seven innings of relief, striking out 10 and walking five while allowing three earned runs.

Reds' Tyler Thornburg: Headed to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornburg was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right elbow sprain Friday.

Thornburg was removed from Thursday's game against the Cubs as a result of his injury, and he'll spend time on the injured list as a result. It's unclear whether he'll recover quickly enough to return prior to the end of the regular season. Right-hander Jose De Leon was recalled by the Reds in a corresponding moe.

Reds' Tyler Thornburg: Managing elbow injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornburg was removed from Thursday's loss to the Cubs with an elbow injury, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

The 31-year-old delivered a scoreless inning with three strikeouts before being lifted with the injury. Thornburg should be considered day-to-day until the team updates his status.

Reds' Tyler Thornburg: Leaves with apparent injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornburg left Thursday's game against the Cubs with an undisclosed injury, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Thornburg entered the game to get the final out in the fifth. He left with an injury after getting two outs in the sixth. It was not clear what was ailing Thornburg.

Reds' Tyler Thornburg: Fails to retire batter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornburg took a step backward Saturday against the Cubs, allowing a hit, two walks and a wild pitch without retiring anyone. Thanks to a good job by Nate Jones after him, he allowed just one run.

This was the first run allowed by Thornburg in five games over five innings. He hadn't pitched in four days, so fatigue can likely be ruled out as a factor in the shaky outing. The ineffective appearance will likely prevent Thornburg from pitching in high-leverage situations in the near future.

Reds' Tyler Thornburg: Joins active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornburg had his contract selected and was added to the active roster by the Reds on Friday.

Thornburg joined the Reds as a non-roster invitee in the offseason and will receive a major-league opportunity in 2020. The 31-year-old had a 7.71 ERA in 16 outings for the Red Sox last year, and he's been attempting to get his career back on track after undergoing surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome in 2017.

Reds' Tyler Thornburg: Added to 60-man pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornburg will be a part of the Reds' 60-man player pool this season.

He is not on the team's 40-man roster but will get to train with the Reds' best pitchers at Great American Ball Park, so perhaps he will be heard from at the major-league level this season. The 31-year-old righty logged a 7.71 ERA in 18.2 innings for the Red Sox last season.

Reds' Tyler Thornburg: Invited to Reds camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornburg signed a minor-league deal with the Reds which includes an invitation to spring training Tuesday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Thornburg's career has fallen off the rails since thoracic outlet syndrome caused him to miss all of the 2017 season. The Reds are taking a low-risk flyer on a player who was once a shutdown reliever, but Thornburg's 6.54 ERA in 42.2 big-league innings over the last two seasons isn't exactly promising.

Dodgers' Tyler Thornburg: Signs with Dodgers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornburg (hip) signed a minor-league contract with the Dodgers, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

Thornburg has latched on with the Dodgers after being released by the Red Sox earlier in the month. The righty posted a 2.15 ERA and 34.2 percent strikeout rate with the Brewers in 2016 but has done very little since, missing all of 2017 due to thoracic outlet syndrome and posting a 6.54 ERA in 42.2 big-league innings over the last season-plus since.

Tyler Thornburg: Released by Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornburg (hip) was released by the Red Sox on Wednesday.

The move was an expected one after Thornburg refused an assignment to the minors earlier in the day. Everything has gone wrong for the 30-year-old since his move to Boston following the 2016 season, as he missed the following campaign due to thoracic outlet syndrome and owns a 6.54 ERA in the season-plus since. Some team will likely take a chance on him in hopes that he can recapture some of his old form, but he hasn't given any indication that he's anywhere close to being a shutdown reliever.

Red Sox's Tyler Thornburg: Refuses assignment to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornburg (hip) exercised his right to refuse an assignment to the minors Tuesday, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

Thornburg's 30-day rehab assignment expired Monday, but the Red Sox apparently had no desire to activate him after he recorded a 12.66 ERA and a 2.44 WHIP in 10.2 innings of minor-league action. The team must now find another excuse to keep him on the injured list or, more likely, release him. The 30-year-old could remain moderately interesting to some teams due to his 2.15 ERA and 34.2 percent strikeout rate for the Brewers back in 2016, but he's done very little since, missing all of 2017 due to thoracic outlet syndrome and posting a 6.54 ERA in 42.2 major-league innings over the last season-plus.

Red Sox's Tyler Thornburg: Pauses rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornburg's (hip) rehab assignment was ended Monday but he remains on the injured list, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

Thornburg's assignment had to be ended Monday, as rehab assignments are limited to 30 days. He's been quite poor throughout the assignment, recording a 12.66 ERA and a 2.44 WHIP in 10.2 innings of work, those numbers drop to 3.60 and 1.60, respectively, over his last four outings. The Red Sox evidently don't think that's enough proof that he's in good shape, however, so he'll likely back off for a short period before heading out on another rehab assignment.

Red Sox's Tyler Thornburg: Roster decision looming
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornburg (hip) will pitch Saturday for the Triple-A Pawtucket, the final outing before his 30-day rehab assignment ends Monday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

Thornburg does not have minor-league options, so Boston's decision is simple: either add him back to the MLB roster or designate him for assignment. The right-handed reliever has been a mess all season, whether that be for Boston or on rehab with Pawtucket. After pitching to a 7.71 ERA over 16 appearances with Boston, Thornburg landed on the injured list with a right hip impingement. For the PawSox, Thornburg has a 13.97 ERA and 2.48 WHIP in 9.2 innings.

Red Sox's Tyler Thornburg: Starts rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornburg (hip) struck out a batter in a perfect inning during his rehab appearance Sunday for Triple-A Pawtucket.

Thornburg probably won't be in line for a high-volume role once the Red Sox bring him back from the 10-day injured list, but the organization is still planning on having the right-hander stick on the rehab assignment for an extended period before he's activated, per Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe. Since Thornburg was acquired from the Brewers in December 2016, injuries have limited him to only 41 regular-season appearances, during which he's compiled a 6.54 ERA and 1.62 WHIP.

Red Sox's Tyler Thornburg: Resumes throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornburg (hip) threw a simulated inning Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

Thornburg landed on the 10-day injured list May 23 due to a right hip impingement, though it's good to see that he's been able to resume throwing. The Red Sox have yet to reveal a concrete timetable for his return; however, it seems likely that he'll require at least a brief rehab stint prior to his activation.

Red Sox's Tyler Thornburg: Hits IL with hip injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornburg was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a right hip impingement, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

The 30-year-old righty had not been experiencing much success prior to the injury. He sits with a 7.71 ERA and 1.66 WHIP in 18.2 innings (16 appearances). Travis Lakins was promoted from Triple-A in a corresponding move.

Red Sox's Tyler Thornburg: Mops up Tuesday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornburg allowed a run on one hit and one walk while striking out one in Tuesday's 5-1 win over Oakland.

Thornburg, who has been relegated to low-leverage situations, allowed the Athletics' lone run. He's been tagged for seven hits (two home runs), five walks and eight runs over his last 5.2 innings. The Red Sox are loathe to part ways after giving up multiple prospects, including Travis Shaw, for him in 2016, but Thornburg is not currently entrusted to handle important innings.

Red Sox's Tyler Thornburg: Has third straight scoreless outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornburg allowed one hit and struck out one over a scoreless inning in Friday's 15-8 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Thornburg has three straight scoreless appearances since allowing two runs on Opening Day. All four of his outings this season have come with Boston losing, but it's hard to assess bullpen roles on a team that's getting hammered like the Red Sox have been during their 2-7 start. Boston's starters have a league-worst 9.60 ERA, so all of its relievers are being used in low-leverage spots.

Red Sox's Tyler Thornburg: Struggles with control
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornburg didn't allow an earned run but walked three batters in one inning of work Thursday.

Thornburg has struggled for much of the spring, as indicated by his 10.50 ERA and 2.67 WHIP. He appeared to be trending in the right direction -- he had one walk in a scoreless outing in his last appearance -- but failed to build on that Thursday. Thornburg's rocky spring puts him on the roster bubble..
