Red Sox agree to term with Tyler Thornburg
BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Red Sox agreed to terms with right-handed reliever Tyler Thornburg on a one-year deal worth $1.75 million on Friday.
Thornburg, who earned $2.05 million this past season, can also earn $400,000 in performance bonuses if he pitches in 60 games.
He made his Red Sox debut in July and appeared in 25 games. Thornburg had a 5.63 ERA. He sat out the 2017 season after undergoing surgery to treat thoracic outlet syndrome.
Thornburg was taken in the third round of the 2010 June Draft by the Milwaukee Brewers. He went 14-9 with a 2.87 ERA in 144 career appearances for the Brewers from 2012-16 prior to being acquired by the Red Sox in a trade in December 2016.
