Red Sox agree on 1-year deal with P Thornburg
(TSX / STATS) -- The Boston Red Sox and right-hander Tyler Thornburg agreed to terms on a one-year contract that avoided arbitration, the team announced Monday.
Thornburg missed last season with a right shoulder impingement after the Red Sox acquired him from the Milwaukee Brewers on Dec. 6.
The 29-year-old posted a 14-9 mark with a 2.87 ERA in 144 career appearances with the Brewers from 2012-16.
Monday's agreement left the Red Sox with 12 players eligible for arbitration, including infielders Brock Holt and Xander Bogaerts; catchers Sandy Leon and Christian Vazquez; outfielders Mookie Betts and Jackie Bradley Jr.; and pitchers Joe Kelly, Drew Pomeranz, Eduardo Rodriguez, Carson Smith, Brandon Workman and Steven Wright.
