Turner struck out four and walked two in the outing, earning his second straight win since rejoining the Marlins rotation.

Jacob Turner earned his third win after limiting the Braves to two runs over five innings as the Marlins went on to a 6-5 victory on Tuesday.

Turner was making his first start since June 11. He had been working out of the bullpen, but his struggles followed him there. The Marlins hope Tuesday's start is the turning over of a new leaf, as Turner held the Braves to four hits and two walks while striking out four. He carries an ugly 6.03 ERA, 1.59 WHIP, and 48/19 K/BB ratio. Turner will take on the Astros in Houston when he takes the mound next.

Jacob Turner has been moved back into the Marlins' rotation.

Turner held a 6.38 ERA in nine starts earlier this season for the Marlins and hasn't been much better in relief, putting up a 5.74 mark over eight appearances. The former top prospect is still just 23 but has been a major disappointment and can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

The Marlins have moved Jacob Turner to the bullpen.

The Marlins shook up their pitching staff Monday by calling up Andrew Heaney and Anthony DeSclafani and designating both Kevin Slowey and Randy Wolf for assignment. Heaney and DeSclafani are moving into Miami's starting rotation, which means that the struggling Turner will likely move into a longman role. The 23-year-old has a disappointing 6.38 ERA across nine starts this season.
Jun 16 - 4:11 PM

Jacob Turner's struggles continued as he fell to 2-4 after allowing five runs in four innings in Wednesday's loss to the Rangers.

Turner allowed five runs in his third consecutive start. He surrendered six hits, walked one, and struck out four. The right-hander, a consensus top prospect as part of the Tigers' system several years ago, has struggled mightily in 2014. He carries a 6.38 ERA with a 1.65 WHIP, but he'll look to lower both in next week's home start against the Cubs.
Jun 11 - 11:15 PM

Jacob Turner struggled but still managed to pick up a win Thursday, allowing five runs over 5 1/3 frames in an 11-6 victory over the Rays.

Turner yielded eight hits -- including a pair of home runs -- while walking one and striking out three. It was odd to see him sent back out for the sixth after serving up a pair of longballs in the fifth, and he allowed a single and a triple to kick off the frame. With a 5.93 ERA over eight starts, Turner's leash can't be long at this point. He'll try to bounce back next week in Texas.
Jun 5 - 8:29 PM

Jacob Turner surrendered five runs in five innings as the Marlins fell to the Braves on Saturday.

Turner walked four and gave up seven hits in the rough home outing. The 23-year-old right-hander is now 1-3 on the year with a hideous 5.59 ERA and 1.63 WHIP.
May 31 - 7:48 PM

Jacob Turner threw 6 1/3 innings of shutout ball to lead the Marlins past the Brewers 2-1 on Saturday.

Turner yielded eight hits and a walk but worked around those threats to earn his first victory of the 2014 season. He'll carry a 1-2 record, 5.35 ERA, and 1.54 WHIP into his next scheduled start at home against the Braves. The 23-year-old right-hander has just 19 strikeouts in 33 2/3 innings this season and is not an attractive fantasy option.
May 24 - 7:23 PM

Jacob Turner allowed four runs in six innings and took the loss on Sunday against the Giants.

Turner ran into some trouble in the first inning as the Giants manufactured three runs, but was otherwise solid. The right-hander allowed six hits, walked one, and struck out seven. Turner has only turned in one quality start in five opportunities thus far, but he'll go for number two in his next start against the Brewers at home.
May 18 - 7:32 PM

Jacob Turner was beat up by the Dodgers Tuesday to the tune of five runs -- four earned -- on eight hits over 5 1/3 innings.

This start embodies why Turner will remain a fantasy tease for the time being. He shut out the Dodgers for five innings, then couldn't retire a batter in the sixth inning outside of Josh Beckett. The 22-year-old, who missed most of April with a shoulder strain, is not a good fantasy bet in any format right now. Turner packs his bags for a Sunday matinee in San Francisco.
May 14 - 1:33 AM

Jacob Turner surrendered six earned runs in four innings Saturday as the Marlins fell to the Dodgers.

Turner missed most of April with a shoulder strain and got a rude welcome back from the Dodgers on Saturday evening in Miami. He let up nine hits and made it to just 69 pitches. The 22-year-old now has a 9.90 ERA this season.
May 3 - 11:22 PM

Marlins activated RHP Jacob Turner from the 15-day disabled list.

He'll rejoin the Marlins rotation immediately to take on the Dodgers on Saturday. Turner had been sidelined since early April with a strained shoulder, and allowed five runs on eight hits over six innings of work in his only start of the season. Kevin Slowey will head back to a long relief role in the bullpen.
May 3 - 8:24 AM

Jacob Turner (shoulder) is scheduled to return to the Marlins' rotation on Saturday against the Dodgers.

Turner has been sidelined since the first week of April with a shoulder strain. The 22-year-old is not a good fantasy bet in his first start back against Los Angeles and probably only has NL-only value going forward. Kevin Slowey will be moved back to the bullpen to accommodate Turner's return.
Apr 29 - 4:14 PM

Jacob Turner (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Jupiter on Wednesday.

He's slated for 50-55 pitches in the outing. The plan is for Turner to make an additional rehab start after that before rejoining the Marlins' rotation. "If all goes according to plan, it’ll probably be the beginning of May," said Turner, who is coming back from a right shoulder strain.

Jacob Turner (shoulder) could throw off a mound as soon as this weekend.

Turner will throw off flat ground for the second straight day Wednesday. The right-hander is expected to make at least one rehab start before being activated from the disabled list. Early May seems like a realistic target date.
