Corey Thurman Re-Signs With York For 5th Season!

Corey Thurman has re-signed with the York Revolution for the 2012 season.

Thurman, a fan favorite in York, was a major part of  their back-to-back championships in 2010, and 2011. In his four seasons with York he's posted a 38-23 record with a 4.22 ERA. Last season he was 13-3 with a 3.33 ERA and was named an Atlantic League All-star.

Thurman was originally selected by the Kansas City Royals in the 4th round (109th overall) of the 1996 MLB Amateur Draft. He played six seasons in the Royals organization before joining the Blue Jays organization in 2002. He played the entire 2002 season in the major leagues with the Toronto Blue Jays, posting a 2-3 record with a 4.37 ERA in 68 innings pitched. He pitched six more games for the Blue Jays in 2003. Thurman has also played in the Cincinnati Reds, Montreal Expos and Milwaukee Brewers organizations.

It was only a matter of time before Thurman re-signed with York. A couple of weeks ago he was modeling their new uniforms and logos at a press conference, so many fans were expecting this. Thurman has become the face of the franchise, and the ace of their staff. Last season, he had his best season with York and should have a encore in 2012.
