Jacob Turner: Heads to KBO
Turner signed a contract with the KIA Tigers of the KBO on Monday, Dan Kurtz of MyKBO.net reports.
Turner spent most of the 2018 season in the minors, posting a combined 3.98 ERA and 1.37 WHIP across 104 innings with Triple-A Toledo and New Orleans. He struggled during his brief time in the majors, finishing with a 20.25 ERA and 3.75 WHIP across 6.2 innings with the Marlins and Tigers.... See More ... See Less
Jacob Turner: Heads to free agency
Turner elected to become a free agent following the conclusion of the 2018 season, Emily Waldon of The Athletic reports.
Turner only appeared in five games at the big-league level this season, recording a disastrous 20.25 ERA and 3.75 WHIP with a 3:6 K:BB in 6.2 innings. The right-hander was designated for assignment by the Tigers in August after being released by Miami earlier in the campaign. He will look to find a new home this winter.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Jacob Turner: Won't start Sunday
The Tigers won't call up Turner from Triple-A Toledo to start Sunday's game against the Twins, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Turner had been scheduled to fill the opening in the rotation created by Blaine Hardy's (elbow) placement on the 10-day disabled list, but the Tigers apparently had a late change of heart. Rather than bringing in Turner, who was lit up for seven runs (five earned) over one inning in his lone start with the big club Aug. 7, the Tigers will start Buck Farmer on Sunday in what amounts to a bullpen game....

Tigers' Jacob Turner: Headed back up to big leagues
Turner will be called up to start Sunday's game against the Twins.
Zach McAllister was designated for assignment to make room for Turner, who will return for his second start with the Tigers this season. Turner only went one inning in his first start earlier this month, allowing seven runs (five earned) on six hits. A top-10 overall pick in 2009, Turner has managed just a 5.6 K-BB percentage in 369 career innings at the big-league level.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Jacob Turner: Reports to Triple-A
Turner cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Toledo on Monday.
Turner will report to the Mud Hens after passing through waivers untouched. The 27-year-old struggled mightily in his lone appearance for the Tigers this season, allowing seven runs (five earned) through just one inning of work. He'll continue to serve as organizational pitching depth.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Jacob Turner: Designated for assignment
Turner was designated for assignment by the Tigers on Friday.
Turner was removed from the roster to make room for new signing Zach McAllister. He appeared just once for the Tigers, getting blown up for seven runs in a one-inning start. His 5.37 career ERA would seem to make him an unlikely candidate to be claimed off waivers.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Jacob Turner: Lasts just one inning in loss
Turner (0-1) took the loss Tuesday, allowing seven runs (five earned) on six hits and a walk while striking out one over one inning against the Angels.
Turner found himself in trouble right out of the gate, allowing singles to the first two batters before yielding a three-run shot to Shohei Ohtani. In all, the first eight batters of the game reached safely. Going back to his last time out with the Marlins in April, it was Turner's second straight outing of at least five earned in just one inning of work. Despite the difficult debut with his new club, Turner figures to get an extended look in the rebuilding Detroit pitching staff down the stretch. Next on tap is a home start against the White Sox on Monday.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Jacob Turner: Contract purchased ahead of start
Turner had his contract purchased from Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday. He is starting against the Angels.
As expected, Turner will join the Tigers ahead of his 2018 big-league debut. The 27-year-old, who owns a combined 5.26 ERA across seven major-league seasons split between five different teams, figures to get an extended look in Detroit's starting rotation down the stretch.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Jacob Turner: Will join Tigers ahead of Tuesday's start
Turner will have his contract purchased from Triple-A Toledo and will start Tuesday's game against the Angels, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Turner is slated to take Mike Fiers' (shin) spot in the rotation after the latter was traded to the A's, and the Tigers apparently plan on giving him an extended look down the stretch, per Jason Beck of MLB.com. The 27-year-old has failed to find much success at the major-league level since making his MLB debut in 2011, posting a combined 5.26 ERA across seven seasons split between five different teams. Turner owns a 4.01 ERA across 11 starts with the Mud Hens this season.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Jacob Turner: Inks minors deal with Detroit
Turner agreed to a minor-league contract with the Tigers on Wednesday, Emily Waldon of The Athletic Detroit reports.
After being released by the Marlins earlier this month, Turner will return to the organization that selected him in the first round of the 2009 first-year player draft. The right-hander reached the big leagues in his age-20 season but has never enjoyed much sustained success over parts of seven campaigns in the majors, posting a 5.26 ERA for his career. He'll likely act as little more than a long-relief option or depth starter for Triple-A Toledo in his reunion with Detroit.... See More ... See Less
Jacob Turner: Cut loose by Miami
The Marlins released Turner on Saturday.
Turner broke camp with the Marlins and was hit hard in four appearances out of the bullpen before getting designated for assignment in April. After going unclaimed off waivers, he remained in the organization and reported to Triple-A New Orleans, where he struggled to find much success in long relief. Over 11 outings, Turner surrendered 14 runs on 31 hits and eight walks over 21.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jacob Turner: Designated for assignment
Turner was designated for assignment Sunday, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.
Turner broke camp with the big-league club but has struggled mightily in the early going with a 15.88 ERA over his first 5.2 innings, including a disastrous showing Saturday in which he allowed eight earned runs on six hits and three walks over one inning of work against the Phillies. Tyler Cloyd had his contract selected from Triple-A New Orleans to fill Turner's spot in the bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jacob Turner: Added to roster
The Marlins selected Turner's contract from Triple-A New Orleans on Thursday, MLB.com reports.
Turner, who had attended camp as a non-roster invitee, is slated to work out of the bullpen to begin the season, but could eventually get a trial in a Marlins rotation that's lacking in established starters. Regardless of how he accumulates most of his innings, Turner is unlikely to bring much value, given his career 5.09 ERA and 5.7 K/9 in the big leagues.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jacob Turner: Starting season in bullpen
Turner has earned an Opening Day roster spot and will start the season in the Marlins' bullpen, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.
Turner was competing for a spot in the starting rotation but will instead settle for a bullpen role though the Marlins still need to add him to the 40-man roster. The 26-year-old is likely to serve in middle and long relief for Miami, limiting his fantasy upside -- although he could also be utilized as a spot starter. Turner had a 5.20 ERA and 1.55 WHIP with 16 strikeouts over 27.2 innings out of the bullpen for the Nationals in 2017.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jacob Turner: On pitching schedule Sunday
Turner (illness) is listed on the Marlins' pitching schedule Sunday for the team's split-squad Grapefruit League game against the Astros, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
Turner had been previously scheduled to make a Grapefruit League appearance Thursday against the Astros, but that plan was nixed after the right-hander experienced flu-like symptoms. After taking the last three days off to recover, Turner seems to have turned a corner on the health front, keeping his bid for a spot in the Marlins' Opening Day rotation alive.... See More ...

Marlins' Jacob Turner: Missing spring start with flu
Turner was scratched from his scheduled Grapefruit League start Thursday against the Astros due to flu-like symptoms, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.
Though Turner likely won't be unavailable for more than a few days while he recovers from the illness, his absence Thursday still represents a slight blow to his hopes of cracking an unsettled Marlins rotation. There could be as many as four spots still up for grabs in the Miami starting ranks if Dan Straily (forearm) is unavailable for the start of the season, so Turner will likely need to get on the mound once more this spring and turn in a decent outing to put himself in better position for one of the rotation openings. Nick Neidert was brought in from minor-league camp to start Thursday's game in Turner's stead.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Jacob Turner: Still in rotation mix
Turner remains in the running for one of the Marlins' three open rotation spots, Clark Spencer of The Miami Herald reports.
The 26-year-old right-hander is one of the most experienced pitchers in the mix with 362.1 big-league innings under his belt, but Turner hasn't exactly excelled with a 5.09 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 5.3 K/9 in the majors. He's had a solid spring to date, though, posting a 5:2 K:BB in 7.2 innings, and if the Marlins decide they'd rather not push a prospect like Sandy Alcantara too quickly to begin the season, Turner could well be the beneficiary. The club would need to find room on the 40-man roster for him for that to happen, but that likely won't be much of a hurdle given all the talent the front office jettisoned over the winter....
