Prospect of the Day:  RHP Tyler Thornburg

The right-hander enjoyed one of the best spring training camps of any prospect in the Brewers system. He continues to carry that into the regular season, as he dominated on Wednesday afternoon for the Huntsville Stars. Reports out of the Huntsville Stars’ media department had Thornburg registering up to 98 MPH on the stadium gun, which is a couple ticks higher than he had been throwing all spring.

Some talent evaluators, such as ESPN’s Keith Law, believe Thornburg should simply transition to the bullpen right now and begin to utilize his talents at the big league level immediately. He certainly possesses the repertoire to retire major league hitters at this point in his career — a mid-90s fastball, a changeup is a borderline plus pitch, and a solid average curveball.

Some talent evaluators, however, still hope that Thornburg possesses the ability to start games with the Brewers. I spoke with one scout who thought the concerns about Thornburg’s body type and overall mechanics are overblown and that he should be given the opportunity to start ballgames until he proves he cannot do so any longer.

    And tip of the hat to Jimmy Nelson as well– looking tough so far. Great start for Halton too.
