Matt Thornton skipped today’s drills and underwent an MRI exam because of elbow soreness, but the White Sox reliever has been diagnosed with merely inflammation.
“He just said he didn’t feel right,” manager Robin Ventura said, via Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune. “We have so much time down here, it’s safer to slow him down and get him out of drills and make sure he’s comfortable before he continues on.”
Thornton spent a couple weeks on the disabled list with elbow inflammation in late-2010, but hasn’t had any arm issues since then.
