    Reds sign Tyler Thornburg to Minor League Deal

    Per Nightengale

    #Reds sign RHP Tyler Thornburg to a minor league deal with an invite to spring training.

    Pretty bad numbers last couple years.

    Mancuso says he worked with Johnson in the past (in Milwaukee). Reclamation project.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Thornburg was a shut-down guy before thoracic surgery.

    Probably not that guy anymore, but this is a cheap look-see if he can somehow recapture past glory.

    I'm totally for the the signing. Minor league deal is no lose, unless it's one of those that gives him a release if not on opening day roster and a moderately high salary if in the majors.

    As I posted in the Major League Transactions thread, Thornburg picked up 1 MPH on his heater in 2019 over 2018 and is only 1 MPH back from his peak at 2016. If DJ can work with him to reclaim that velo, he could find himself as a fixture in the pen. Certainly seems like the kind of guy who is worth a flyer.
