Trent Thornton Newsbeat

Tuesday, June 18, 2019

Blue Jays’ Trent Thornton aiming to show Astros what they missed out on - HoustonChronicle.com

He’s alternated brilliant and bad starts with the Blue Jays. Four of his 14 starts have concluded before the fifth inning, but Thornton is striking out 9.4 batters per nine innings. On May 24 against the Padres, he struck out 10 in six innings of three-run ball. He fired seven innings of one-hit ball against the Rangers on May 3.

Thornton pitches with an unorthodox delivery, incorporating a pronounced leg kick. His curveball and splitter each induce ample swing and miss to complement a four-seam fastball that hovers around 94 mph.

“Yeah, there’s a chip on my shoulder that I never had an opportunity with them,” Thornton said. “And I kind of want to show them, yeah, to a certain point what they missed out on.”
