Jacob Turner (shoulder) is expected to play catch Tuesday.

Turner was placed on the disabled list late last week after an MRI showed a right shoulder strain. There's no clear timeline for his return, but we should know more after he starts ramping things up.
Apr 14 - 4:47 PM

An MRI taken Thursday confirmed that Jacob Turner is suffering from a right shoulder strain.

Turner hurt his shoulder taking batting practice prior to his start Wednesday against the Nationals. The severity of the strain is unclear. He has already been placed on the disabled list and is out indefinitely.
Apr 10 - 2:28 PM

Marlins placed RHP Jacob Turner on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 4, with a right shoulder strain.

It's not clear when Turner suffered the injury or how long he'll be sidelined. The Marlins will move Brad Hand in from the bullpen to take Turner's spot in the rotation. Arquimedes Caminero has been recalled to take his spot on the roster.
Apr 9 - 12:54 PM

Jacob Turner has been scratched from Wednesday's scheduled start against the Nationals due to a strained right shoulder.

It's not clear at this point whether the injury will force Turner to the disabled list, but it seems likely. The right-hander dealt with shoulder tendinitis back in 2012, but he didn't have any known issues with the shoulder last season. Brad Hand will come out of the bullpen to start in Turner's place Wednesday.
Apr 8 - 10:37 PM

Jacob Turner gave up five runs over six innings in a no-decision against the Rockies on Thursday.

Turner allowed eight hits (including a two-run homer to Michael Cuddyer) and three walks while striking out just one batter. The 22-year-old is coming off a 3.74 ERA in 20 starts last season, but it's hard to believe a breakout is coming if he doesn't miss more bats. He'll face the Nationals next week.
Apr 3 - 4:08 PM

Facing the team that drafted him, Jacob Turner pitched six innings of one-run ball in the Marlins' win over the Tigers on Sunday.

Turner struck out five and walked one. He's helped his trade stock with progressively better showings his last three outings. Still, it's far from assured that the Marlins will move him. They're content to use him as their fourth starter unless a strong offer comes along.
Mar 23 - 5:05 PM

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Marlins are shopping starting pitcher Jacob Turner.

The Marlins have starting pitching depth and long-term needs at second base and first base, so they're trying to do some roster shifting. Turner, a first-round pick (ninth overall) in 2009, posted a 3.74 ERA and 77 strikeouts in 118 innings last season for Miami. A trade of Turner would clear the way for an early-season promotion of Marlins top pitching prospect Andrew Heaney.
Mar 20 - 2:03 PM

Jacob Turner pitched five innings and held the Astros to one run and two hits in a victory Tuesday.

Turner was very shaky in his first couple of starts, but he's showed definite progress his last two times out. His three strikeouts today were one more than he had totaled in his 8 1/3 previous innings this spring.
Mar 18 - 4:12 PM

Facing his former team, Jacob Turner allowed two runs -- one earned -- in four innings Thursday in the Marlins' 4-2 win over the Tigers.

Turner was better today than last time out against the Braves, though he wasn't exactly stellar; he went without a strikeout and he had a hit batter and a wild pitch to go along with his one walk. Still, Turner doesn't need to win a rotation spot this spring, he only needs not lose it.
Mar 13 - 4:28 PM

Jacob Turner allowed two runs and seven hits in 2 1/3 innings Saturday against the Braves.

It's hard to believe he got out of it allowing just two runs. He also walked a batter, and he failed to record a strikeout. Turner had a rotation spot last spring and threw it away with a poor March before bouncing back later. It'd be a shame if the same thing happened this year.
Mar 8 - 5:03 PM

Marlins exercised RHP Jacob Turner's $1 million club option for the 2014 season.

It was an easy call for the Miami front office. Turner, 22, has a 3.64 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 106/63 K/BB ratio in 160 2/3 innings since joining the Marlins via trade from the Tigers. He should have a bright future ahead.

Jacob Turner was touched up for five runs over 5 1/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Nationals.

Turner held the Nationals in check until he unraveled in the sixth. He gave up seven hits and two walks in the loss and has now failed to complete six innings in eight straight starts. The 22-year-old has likely hit a wall late in the season. He'll complete his year with a start against the Phillies next week at home.

Jacob Turner allowed four runs -- three earned -- on six hits over 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Rockies on Sunday.

He struck out one and walked one. Turner hasn't exceeded six innings pitched in an August outing and he's scuffled to an 0-2 record and 4.29 ERA over 26 2/3 frames this month. The earned run average could have been worse, but he's danced around 31 hits and 17 walks. The young right-hander may be wearing down and he doesn't make for a good start on Saturday in Atlanta.

Jacob Turner allowed four runs -- three earned -- on 10 hits in a no-decision against the Dodgers on Tuesday.

It's the second straight start in which Turner has performed a magic act to escape without extensive damage. After walking six in his last outing, Turner gave up five walks to go with the 10 hits on Tuesday while failing to strike out a batter. He was aided by three double plays turned by his defense to limit the damage to just three earned runs. He's got the Rockies in his next start on Sunday.
