Tonkin begins his second season with the Ducks and 13th in professional baseball. Additionally, he will serve as the team’s bullpen coach during the 2021 season. The right-hander pitched in the Major Leagues with the Minnesota Twins from 2013-17. He appeared in 141 MLB games, compiling a 3-3 record with a 4.43 ERA and 149 strikeouts to 54 walks over 146.1 innings of work. The California native made his big league debut on July 11, 2013, when he retired all four Tampa Bay Rays batters he faced, including a strikeout of Evan Longoria. Tonkin went on to allow just one earned run in nine appearances (11.1 innings) with Minnesota that year. He was also named an Organization All-Star in both 2012 and 2013.

The 31-year-old first joined the Ducks in June of 2019 after beginning the year in the Milwaukee Brewers organization. He pitched in 21 games with the Flock, allowing just four runs (one earned) over 26.2 innings, good for a 0.34 ERA. The righty accrued a 3-2 record, seven saves and 31 strikeouts to just nine walks. His contract was then purchased by the Arizona Diamondbacks organization on August 19, and he went on to make five appearances with Triple-A Reno. Tonkin was originally selected by the Twins in the 30th round of the 2008 amateur draft out of Palmdale High School in California.
