Our starting LBs if Thornton can't go are Bulluck, Tulluch and Sirmon. Signing this guy is only for depth in case we have another injury. Looks like Tulluch will get to play MLB the rest of the year which is the only bright spot of Thornton's injury. Maybe they are going to IR Thornton if the injury is worse than they thought. Even so, it still looks like Toone and Nande may have been wasted picks.
