Marlins designated RHP Jacob Turner for assignment.
Turner had a 3.74 ERA over 20 starts with the Marlins last season, but he has regressed in a big way this year by posting a 5.97 ERA in 12 starts and eight relief appearances. It's quite a fall from grace for the 23-year-old, who was once considered a top prospect during his days as a Tigers farmhand and was a key piece in the Anibal Sanchez deal. Surely someone will take a chance on him, but his career has been a disappointment thus far.
Why would a team that is not going to make the post season cut a 23 year old talented pitcher? I would love if he came back to Detroit.
I was impressed with Turner against the Braves earlier this season. He gave up 2 ER on 4 H in 5.0 IP and it seemed like he had plenty left in the tank but they took him out anyway. He had a disastrous outing Sunday and that is what got him the dfa. I actually think he has more potential than to be just depth but then again it is based on small sample sizes even though he was in our division.
