JACOB TURNER NEWS

The Cubs #5 starter battle dissected

When the Cubs opened camp this Spring Training, one of the only real battles for a roster space figuring to take place was at the back-end of the rotation. 1 through 3 was definitely set (Lester, Arrieta, Hammel), and the 4th starter was almost certainly going to be Kyle Hendricks (though Muskat and others whispered that even he might break camp with Iowa instead of Chicago). The...

Springtime Sales Pitch: A Look at the Cubs Pitching Staff

At some point in the near future, the Chicago Cubs will likely win a Cactus League game.  Of course, with it being spring training, the losses are a bit easier to take, but competitive players probably would prefer a meaningless victory over a meaningless defeat, especially one in which guys threw the ball all over the place (4 errors!  WTF).  As a fan, I’m of two minds…on...

Jacob Turner Could Be Key to 2015 Season

Way back in 2013, the Cubs acquired a pitcher who had not performed to his ability, hoping a change of scenery would help him meet, or get close to, that potential.  That pitcher was Jake Arrieta.  The early returns on Arrieta have been positive.  He had a dominant 2014, carrying multiple no-hitters through six innings and being dominant, in general.  He finished 2014 with a...

After finally breaking their seven game losing streak last night with a 6-4 win last night, the Chicago Cubs came out today and looked poised to steal two games in Pittsburgh.

The Daily Grind: Chicago’s Guide to Handicapping MLB (8/27/14)

It has been a tough start to the week for me. Two gas can pitchers this year have gone out and thrown their best games of the year. Last night, Travis Wood threw six scoreless innings against a team that averages over five runs per game against him. Quintana is in a real funk for the White Sox, that play was over by the 3rd inning.  Lastly, I salvaged the night on the Baltimore...

DFP: Jacob Turner

In case you missed it, the Cubs acquired RHP Jacob Turner last week for two non-prospects. Turner’s stock has really fallen off since 2012, when his name was being tossed around as a potential centerpiece from the Tigers in a Matt Garza trade and was eventually a big part of the trade that brought Anibal Sanchez and Omar Infante to the team. For three years between 2010 and 2012...

Fantasy Roundup: Cubs Buy Low On Another Pitcher
