News: It's possible that Thornburg could replace Kyle Lohse in the starting rotation, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel speculates.
Impact: Manager Craig Counsell said while discussing Lohse's effort Sunday that all his players need to be accountable for their performance, suggesting that Lohse could be out and Thornburg could be in. The 26-year-old relieved Lohse on Sunday, throwing 1.2 sharp innings, and worked as a starter in the minor leagues, though he's started only 10 games in the majors.
Rotowire: Jul 31 / 9:48a ET
News: Thornburg was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Friday.
Impact: Thornburg will come up to presumably take the roster spot of Jonathan Broxton, who was dealt to the Cardinals earlier Friday. The 26-year-old has made six appearances for the Brewers this season, allowing six earned runs on 16 hits in 9.2 innings. In 17 starts at Triple-A, he's 2-7 with a 5.28 ERA. He'll provide bullpen depth for Milwaukee over the final two months of the season.
