    News

    Turnbull pitched five innings of one-run ball but did not factor into the decision in Wednesday's game against Cleveland. He allowed six hits while striking out eight.

    Impact

    Turnbull was effective, but Cleveland starter Aaron Civale held the Tigers in check as well and kept Turnbull from picking up his fourth win of the year. It was an encouraging outing for the righty, who had allowed at least four earned runs in each of his previous five starts. He also struck out exactly eight batters for the second straight time. Turnbull will look to build on this effort in his next turn through the rotation, which is scheduled for Tuesday against a tough Twins lineup.

    Turnbull (3-15) struck out eight while allowing four runs on seven hits with one walk across five innings while taking a loss against the Yankees on Thursday.

    Impact

    This was the 26-year-old's best strikeout night in almost a month, but his losing streak continued. Turnbull has lost 11 straight decisions and hasn't won a start since May 31. He's pitched better than his record indicates, but then again, Turnbull doesn't have great numbers either. He owns a 4.77 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 126 strikeouts in 132 innings this season. Turnbull will look to end his long losing streak in his next start Wednesday at the Indians.

    News

    Turnbull allowed four runs on four hits and three walks while striking out two in just 1.2 innings Friday, taking a no-decision versus the Athletics.

    Impact

    Turnbull also hit Ramon Laureano with a pitch, contributing to the mess in the second inning. Turnbull's struggles have persisted into September, as he's now allowed 19 runs in his last 14.1 innings, spanning four starts. The 26-year-old hasn't won a decision since May 31, although he was spared from the loss as the Tigers plated a pair in each of the seventh and eighth innings. Turnbull owns a 4.68 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in 127 innings this season. He's next scheduled to face the Yankees on Thursday.

    News

    Turnbull (3-14) allowed six runs on eight hits with three walks and four strikeouts across 4.2 innings while taking a loss against the Twins on Sunday.

    Impact

    While his record won't show it, Turnbull was pitching better out of the All-Star break. However, that is no longer the case; the 26-year-old has yielded 15 runs in his last 12.2 innings (10.66 ERA). But Turnbull has gone much longer without a win; he has lost 10 straight decisions, and his last victory came May 31. Turnbull has 14 losses with a 4.45 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 116 strikeouts in 125.1 innings this season. He will make his next start at the Athletics on Friday.
