Many Brewers fans (myself included) have been long anticipating the arrival of Thornburg, who as the numbers show, has been a dominant figure in the Milwaukee farm system this season. He will join the Brewers having completely bypassed Triple-A Nashville. Thornburg was drafted in the 3rd Round of the 2010 First-Year Player Draft.Milwaukee, WI Ė The Milwaukee Brewers have selected the contract of pitcher Tyler Thornburg from Double-A Huntsville.
Thornburg will start Tuesday night's game against the Blue Jays. Shaun Marcum was organically scheduled to take the mound, but was scratched due to tightness in his right elbow.
In 13 starts for Huntsville, Thornburg went 8-1 with a 3.00 ERA. He had 71 strikeouts and just 24 walks.
Looking forward to seeing him pitch tonight!
