WSC Birth Years: Matt Thornton

Card #24 - Matt Thornton

Born: September 15, 1976

Matt Thornton was once a highly regarded prospect in the Seattle Mariners organization, but he never became a consistent reliever until he was traded to the White Sox. Since coming to Chicago, Matt has turned into a premier middle reliever.

Thornton has transformed himself into one of the best pitchers out of the bullpen, in the majors. Whatever he was lacking in Seattle finally clicked with the White Sox. In 2009, he reached highs in innings pitched, strikeouts, wins and saves, while posting a 2.74 ERA in seventy appearances.
