Tyler Thornburg throws a scoreless inning in loss

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

Fantasy Impact

Thornburg goes into the season as one of the Red Sox primary setup relievers. The veteran has looked good with three straight scoreless appearances since allowing two runs on Opening Day. Thornburg is worth grabbing in fantasy leagues that count holds.

Tyler Thornburg (shoulder) throws live BP

Tyler Thornburg (shoulder) threw live batting practice on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Manager Alex Cora said Thornburg struggled with his mechanics while maintaining his usual velocity. The former Brewer has missed most of the past two years with injuries but finally looks like he could be healthy enough for a regular relief role in 2019.

Tyler Thornburg to make two more rehab appearances

Tyler Thornburg will make at least two more rehab appearances before rejoining the Red Sox, Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston reports.

Fantasy Impact

Once Thornburg gets on the mound for the Red Sox he will be used in a setup role. The veteran reliever will be a good source of holds for fantasy owners that are in leagues with that category. Keep an eye on updates with Thornburg's progress.

Tyler Thornburg throws a bullpen session on Friday

Tyler Thornburg (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Friday, Bill Koch of the Providence Journal reports. Thornburg was expected to throw a live batting practice session Friday but was rained out.

Fantasy Impact

Thornburg is expected to get on the field at some point this weekend, with a minor-league assignment next on his agenda. The 29-year-old reliever is expected to slot in as a setup man in the Red Sox bullpen and could be useful in fantasy leagues with holds as a category.

Tyler Thornburg to throw a bullpen session on Wednesday

Tyler Thornburg (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Wednesday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. The session will be Thornburg's first since undergoing surgery to treat his thoracic outlet syndrome in June.

Fantasy Impact

Thornburg missed all of 2017 with a shoulder injury. He is not expected to be ready for Opening Day and there's no guarantee he will be effective when he returns. Thornburg should be avoided in all fantasy drafts.
