Red Sox right-hander Tyler Thornburg had just unleashed the 20th and final pitch of his first full side session since undergoing surgery, and catcher Christian Vazquez let out an audible, "Whoooooo".
Spin: Red Sox manager Alex Cora came over and gave the reliever a hug. Thornburg was excited and relieved. Best of all, he was not tired or sore. He wanted to keep pitching. Wednesday's step was a significant one as Thornburg makes his comeback from thoracic outlet syndrome surgery on his right shoulder. "Pretty darn good," was the way Thornburg described the feeling of being back on the mound. "It's one of those feelings you realize you miss a lot once you don't do it for a year, I guess." Now, Thornburg will get on a steady progression that will eventually lead him back to the Red Sox, though it's too soon to know when that will be.
