Jacob Turner sits and waits.  The former 1st round draft pick of the Detroit Tigers (9th overall), Turner was the main prize in a trade with the Miami Marlins that brought the Tigers back shortstop, Omar Infante, and starting pitcher, Anibal Sanchez; two keys players who played pivotal roles for the Tigers during their postseason run last year.  Infante and Sanchez are continuing to have good season with the Tigers this 2013 campaign. Turner meanwhile, continues to sit and wait.  Currently with the New Orleans Zephyrs (triple-A affiliate for the Marlins), he has posted a 3-4 win-loss record, with a 4.47 ERA, 12 BBs, 31 K’s, and a 1.29 WHIP thus far this season.  But it’s what he’s done of late that makes him on the verge of possibly getting his first call-up of this 2013 season.  In his last 6 starts (dating back to April 22nd), Turner has pitched at least 6 innings in each of those games, only allowing 3 ERs in his first two starts of that stretch, and allowing 2 ERs in each of his last
