Thornburg (shoulder) has yet to throw on back-to-back days, which has caught the attention of manager Alex Cora, Bill Ballou of the Worcester Telegram & Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

After Thornburg appeared in two games over a three-day stretch, the right-hander has appeared in just three games over the last 11 days. "We need to start treating this like a regular guy in the bullpen. There are going to be days where you don't feel great, and you're going to have to try to grind it out and get three outs," said Cora. "He doesn't want to be in a situation where he comes in, he's active, he pitches on Monday and all of a sudden he's not available for three or four days."

Thornburg (shoulder) threw 23 of his 33 pitches for strikes in two scoreless outings over the weekend at Triple-A Pawtucket, Bill Koch of the Providence Journal reports. "The breaking ball wasn't there, but the velocity was there," manager Alex Cora said. "Repeating his delivery was there. It was a good one for him [on Sunday]."

EDGE Analysis

Thornburg has made three appearances since beginning a new 30-day rehabilitation period after his first rehab stint was cut short as the Red Sox didn't feel he was ready to be activated. The club is confident he'll be ready for the majors at some point during this rehab stint, but they will need to see him pitch consecutive days.

Thornburg (shoulder) is scheduled to make a rehabilitation appearance at Triple-A Pawtucket on Monday, Bill Koch of the Providence Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Thornburg joined the Red Sox and threw a bullpen session prior to Friday's game in Toronto, his second straight day of work following a rehab outing for Double-A Portland. "As of now, velocity was good yesterday," manager Alex Cora said. "Breaking ball was inconsistent. The fact that he was able to throw that bullpen was a good sign."

Slowly but surely, the right-hander is inching back to a return to the big-league bullpen. Thornburg will throw a bullpen under team supervision when he rejoins the team, and if all goes well, he'll head back out on his rehab assignment. It seems like he still has a week or two before a full return.
