YearComment
2003 The conditions weren’t optimal, but at least the sad state of Toronto’s pitching kept its Rule 5 pick from completely wasting a year of development. Although Thurman’s offerings are somewhat raw, particularly his curveball, he has a great arm and the makings of a devastating changeup. Not surprisingly, one of the biggest battles he fought all season was with his nerves. The Blue Jays just want him to pitch, so he’ll open the campaign in Syracuse.
2002 As much time, energy, and instruction as the Royals invested in Corey Thurman, you’d think they would have found a way to get him on the 40-man roster now that he's showing improvement. They lost him to the Blue Jays in the Rule 5 draft. Thurman is still a bit raw, but given the opportunity to pitch—and not just watch, like some Rule 5 guys—he can provide the Jays with some good middle-relief innnings.
2001 How do you know that an organization has pitching depth? When a guy like Corey Thurman, who went 10-5 with a 2.26 ERA for Wilmington, hardly gets mentioned, you have pitching depth. Despite being in his fifth professional season, Thurman is actually younger than both MacDougal and Sanches. He attributed his breakout season to improved focus on the mound, which sounds a lot better than, "Well, I was only 20 last year, and I’m still developing physically." The Royals need to see another year in the minor leagues to know whether his future is as a starter or as a reliever.
