White Sox Thornton "not worried at all" about elbow

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Left-hander Matt Thornton downplayed the left elbow discomfort that kept him out of drills on Tuesday, saying Wednesday he has no concerns and will throw again in two days.

"I'm not worried about it at all,'' Thornton said Wednesday morning. "We have time to back off a little bit and there's no reason to throw through discomfort on Feb. 19. I'm not worried about it one bit. Just trust [trainer] Hermie [Schneider] to get me right and it will be no problem. I'll be throwing in a couple days here.''

Thornton said the issue is in the back of the elbow and triceps area of his left arm.

"Achy, balky, whatever you want to call it,'' he said. "More than likely the process of throwing every day for a week. Try to get it under control and it won't be a problem the rest of the year.''
