The latest Tyler Thornburg MLB and fantasy baseball news

Milwaukee Brewers SP Johnny Hellweg hasn't made a start for Triple-A Nashville since June 11, and he won't pitch in the next few days. The team is having him rest so that they "don't face inning limits later in the year." Ps Jimmy Nelson and Tyler Thornburg, who are also with Nashville, will be on a similar plan. Hellweg is 6-4 with a 3.06 ERA in 13 starts (70 2/3 innings). He's struck out 48, walked 44 and is limiting opponents to a .197 average.
Fantasy Tip: Hellweg, Nelson and Thornburg could be September call-ups, but it's not realistic to expect them before that. They're probably strictly NL-only commodities if they make their major league debuts this season.

Confirming a previous report, the Milwaukee Brewers have activated RP Jim Henderson (hamstring) from the 15-day disabled list. In a corresponding move, P Tyler Thornburg has been optioned to Triple-A Nashville.
Fantasy Tip: Henderson will not return immediately to the closer's role, so Francisco Rodriguez remains Milwaukee's go-to guy at the end of the game. Manager Ron Roenicke wants to be cautious with Henderson and said it makes sense to use him "somewhere other than the ninth inning."

Milwaukee Brewers SP Marco Estrada (hamstring) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring. The club has recalled P Tyler Thornburg from Triple-A Nashville to take Estrada's place on the roster. Writer Tom Haudricourt speculates that Thornburg was probably called up to take Estrada's next turn, which comes on Saturday, June 8, against the Philadelphia Phillies, unless Milwaukee needs him out of the bullpen beforehand.
Fantasy Tip: It's unclear how long Estrada will be sidelined, but it could be more than the minimum based on previous reports. Thornburg is an interesting prospect, but as Haudricourt notes, he's not had a good season for the Sounds, so fantasy owners should take a wait-and-see approach. The Brewers could end up recalling and going with Mike Fiers, who has also disappointed this season.

Milwaukee Brewers Ps Tyler Thornburg and Hiram Burgos might be pushed a big faster than originally anticipated with the team falling short on free-agent pitching help, and the team apparently unwilling to overpay for the remaining free agents. In a perfect world, they would go to Triple-A Nashville to start the season, but they could be in the mix for the big league club as well.

Peralta will start against the Miami Marlins Wednesday, Sept. 5, taking the spot of SP Mark Rogers, who has been shut down for the rest of the season. Peralta was 7-11 with a 4.66 ERA in 28 starts with Nashville.

Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said SP Mark Rogers is nearing his innings limit for the season. Rogers threw only 44 1/3 innings last season before having surgery on both of his wrists. He's already thrown 119 innings this year, 95 1/3 with Triple-A Nashville and 23 2/3 innings in the bigs. SP Shaun Marcum (elbow) could return later this week to take Rogers' spot in the rotation. The team could also choose to limit SP Marco Estrada's innings by moving him to the bullpen. SPs Wily Peralta and Tyler Thornburg are options to be called up to make starts down the stretch.
