News: Turner will pitch out of the Cubs' bullpen for the time being, MLB.com's Carrie Muskat reports. Impact: With both Kyle Hendricks and Tsuyoshi Wada pitching well for the Cubs at the last two spots in the rotation, Turner will have to bide his time in long relief until further notice. The 23-year-old was horrendous in both starting and bullpen capacities for the Marlins this season, but he's young enough to rebound from those woes and provide the Cubs with some long-term utility.(RotoWire, )
