|Jacob Turner chased in fourth inning of loss vs. Reds |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(8/27/14) Cubs pitcher Jacob Turner took a loss Wednesday, giving up six runs (three earned) on six hits and two walks in 3 2/3 innings while striking out one in his team's 7-5 defeat against the Reds.
Turner (4-8) surrendered a pair of runs in the second inning before getting knocked around in the fourth, exiting that inning after a pair of errors by infielders. He owns a 5.84 ERA and 56:25 K:BB ratio in 86 1/3 innings. Turner is scheduled to face the Brewers Monday
|Jacob Turner in, Edwin Jackson out of Cubs rotation |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(8/23/14) What was suspected is now official: Jacob Turner is set to start Wednesday for the Cubs. He is replacing struggling Edwin Jackson in the rotation.
Turner has pitched two games out of the bullpen since the trade that brought him from Miami. He has been battered this season to the tune of a 4-7 record and 5.77 ERA. Jackson has been a mess for months. He is 6-14 with a 6.09 ERA.
|Jacob Turner a candidate to start Tuesday |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(8/22/14) Cubs pitcher Jacob Turner tossed two innings Thursday against the Cubs, allowing one run on three hits, and MLB.com reports his next outing could come as a starter.
Turner is a candidate to start in Edwin Jackson's spot in the rotation Tuesday, after Jackson was placed on the disabled list this week. Turner has not started since early August when the Cubs acquired him, but he told MLB.com he would be ready if called on.
"Definitely," he said. "I was starting at the beginning of the month. I don't think I'd have any problem going five, and depending on how stressful the innings were, getting back up and down wouldn't be a problem."
Turner has made 12 of his 22 appearances this season as a starter, carrying a 5.77 ERA in 82 2/3 innings overall.
|Jacob Turner to pitch in relief for Cubs |

(8/10/14) Newly acquired pitcher Jacob Turner will pitch out of the Cubs' bullpen, according to MLB.com. Turner, who was added to the roster Sunday, was acquired in a trade with the Marlins Friday.
|Cubs make a trio of moves |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(8/10/14) The Cubs activated reliever Neil Ramirez (triceps) from the disabled list and optioned pitcher Chris Rusin to Triple-A Iowa. Chicago also added recently-acquired pitcher Jacob Turner to the 25-man roster.
|Jacob Turner opened last season in the minors after failing to grab hold of a rotation spot during spring training. He toiled at Triple-A New Orleans for two months until the Marlins finally brought him back to the majors. Turner got off to a fast start following his promotion, going 2-0 with a 1.76 ERA and one complete game in his first six starts. But Turner then began to pitch like we have seen in the past. He went 1-8 with a 4.79 ERA and 1.62 WHIP in his final 14 starts. Turner was really hurt by a lack of command over that stretch, walking 42 batters in 77 innings. Turner was once considered one of the best prospects in baseball, but he sure hasn't shown much of that potential in the majors. He is 5-14 with a 4.27 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 33 career starts. Fantasy owners don't need to invest a lot while the 22-year-old hurler continues to develop as a major-league pitcher, especially since wins could be tough to come by pitching for the Marlins. Leave him for deep formats on Draft Day.
