Boston's Tyler Thornburg (arm) scheduled for another bullpen session

Boston Red Sox reliever Tyler Thornburg (arm) is scheduled to throw another bullpen session Saturday.

What It Means:

Saturday's session will be a little more demanding after Thornburg got through Wednesday's workout pain-free. The 28-year-old right-hander has been dealing with the dead arm since the beginning of the month, but Boston's new setup man seems like he's going to be ready to open the year.

numberFire's algorithms project Thornburg to record a 3.71 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 27.6 strikeout percentage across 58 1/3 innings this upcoming season.
