News: Thornburg (elbow) believes he will be ready for the start of spring training, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Impact: Thornburg was shut down in early June due to elbow soreness and never returned in 2014. He started the season strong, but struggled before being shut down likely because of the elbow issue. The 26-year-old will likely start the season in a long-relief role for the Brewers in 2015, but he was used in some late-inning relief for the club in 2014 and could find himself making similar appearances again this season.
