Found July 18, 2012 on Fox Sports Detroit:
Tuesday night, it became apparent that the three American League Central contenders have the same trade-deadline need. A starting pitcher. In Detroit, Jacob Turner the Tigers top pitching prospect surrendered seven earned runs over two innings in a disastrous outing against the Los Angeles Angels. While the Angels were battering Turner, the Tampa Bay Rays with one of the meeker lineups in the AL scored three first-inning runs against Cleveland starter Josh Tomlin. He surrendered four runs in all and failed to complete the sixth inning in a 4-2 loss. Earlier in the day, the first-place Chicago White Sox placed Gavin Floyd on the disabled list with right-elbow tendinitis. At present, their rotation includes two All-Stars (Chris Sale and Jake Peavy), two rookies (Dylan Axelrod and Jose Quintana), and Phil Humber, who has a 7.02 ERA since throwing a perfect game in April even after his win over Boston on Tuesday night.

Game 2012.92: Angels at Tigers

Detroit Tigers, 47-44, 3 1/2 games behind Chicago. Alice Cooper threw out the ceremonial first pitch before last night’s game, and from that point on it was Welcome To My Nightmare for young Jacob Turner, who bombed.
