Silverman: Cracks showing in Red Sox’ plan for 2017

FORT MYERS — We don’t know jack about the 2017 Red Sox.Thanks to anything but a minor injury to David Price’s elbow and the avoidably slow progress of new reliever Tyler Thornburg, the offseason remodeling blueprints remain tightly rolled in the tube.Maybe this team will eventually wind up better than the 2016 version.But right now?They’re a weaker version.If there’s another conclusion to be drawn on March 23, with less than two weeks to go before the season begins, I’d love to see it. . . . I’m still waiting, and so will the Sox for likely at least another month or so, and...

Decisions will be needed in Red Sox bullpen

Decisions will be needed in Red Sox bullpen

TAMPA — The Red Sox envisioned their bullpen as a strongpoint, a group so deep that some worthy relievers would have to start the season with Triple A Pawtucket. But as the season approaches, there is almost as much uncertainty in the bullpen as there is with the rotation. Tyler Thornburg, obtained to pitch in […]

Tyler Thornburg ready to return to game action

Tyler Thornburg ready to return to game action

Tyler Thornburg got some good news on Tuesday, but he’s not out of the woods just yet. It’s flown by, but spring training is getting pretty close to wrapping up. Today is March 22 (for those of you without calendars) which means we have only 12 more days until the Red Sox start their season. That, in turn, means pitchers only have a couple more outings before they are to be expected for Opening Day. So, if anyone isn’t throwing right now, they probably won’t be ready to take on the Pirates on April 3. We’re already seeing it with David Price, who still isn’t ready to throw and...

Sam Travis and Steve Selsky are having great springs and have a chance to make the MLB roster. Meanwhile, pitching injuries are hurting the Sox. If Hanley Ramirez can’t play first base because of a shoulder injury, could that open the door for Sam Travis to earn a roster spot as a platoon partner for Mitch Moreland? (Christopher Smith; MassLive) The Red Sox vaunted starting pitching depth has taken hit after hit. If they need to trade for some help, would the Dodgers make a good partner? (Gabe Burns; Dodgers Nation) It’s not just the rotation that has injury issues. The bullpen is...

AL East Notes: Thornburg, Donaldson, Travis, Boxberger

Reliever Tyler Thornburg tops the Red Sox’ list of concerns as the 2017 season approaches, Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe writes. Thornburg has dealt with dead arm for most of Spring Training so far. The Red Sox gave up a fairly hefty package of talent that included infielder Travis Shaw and prospect Mauricio Dubon to…

(Nick Cafardo; Boston Globe) Among those concerns is Tyler Thornburg’s status. If the set-up man has to miss the start of the season, Joe Kelly will take over the eighth inning. (Christopher Smith; Masslive) Another concern is Pablo Sandoval, who is doing everything right this spring but still has plenty to prove.

Who will be the Boston Red Sox go-to eighth inning reliever?

The acquisition of Tyler Thornburg already seemed to answer this question for the Boston Red Sox. Who would be their primary setup man for Craig Kimbrel? Due to injuries and ineffectiveness, Thornburg isn’t the clear answer anymore. While Thornburg is struggling, plenty of other relievers are shining. With all of this going on, the question […] The post Who will be the Boston Red Sox go-to eighth inning reliever? appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

Silverman: Tyler Thornburg endures rough adjustment to Sox’ shoulder program

FORT MYERS — Chris Sale is as good as advertised, as he displayed in dominating fashion yesterday.But what happened to Tyler Thornburg, the new right-hander from Milwaukee who was slated to be the second-most dominating and important reliever after closer Craig Kimbrel?Thornburg made two ineffective early Grapefruit League appearances and has not been allowed back on the mound since. He’s still expected to be ready for Opening Day, but right now he’s only throwing long toss.He’s not hurt, exactly, but what happened?The truth is that when Thornburg arrived in Fort Myers, he was not...

Step back for Tyler Thornburg all part of shoulder program

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Joe Kelly can acknowledge now that he wasn't quite ready for the intensity of the Red Sox shoulder-strengthening program."It's something I didn't buy into all the way when I first did it," he said. "With something new you're doing and you're getting sore and fatigued, it's something you probably don't want to do. But it's something I stuck with and I tried it and, ultimately, it just felt great."Like Tyler Thornburg this spring, Kelly encountered a [. [...]
