The photo caption claims that right-hander Tyler Thornburg was trying "to be serious as he wears a hat several sizes too big for him" during photo day at Milwaukee Brewers spring camp Sunday. But the way these kids today wear their caps too big and their pants too big and down to their ankles, don't be surprised if this becomes a major league fashion statement soon.
Though listed as No. 6 on the Brewers depth chart for the five-man starting rotation, Thornburg has a chance to pile up a lot of innings in Milwaukee this season. Thornburg finished with a 2.03 ERA in 66 2/3 major league innings a season ago but, as you can see, his success with the Brewers didn't give him a big head.
