PITTSBURGH (AP) - Right-hander Jacob Turner has been designated for assignment by the Miami Marlins, who endured his struggles as a starter for the past two seasons.
Turner went 8-19 in 47 games with Miami, including 39 starts. This year he's 4-7 in 20 games with an ERA of 5.97.
Left-hander Bryan Flynn was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans on Tuesday and will likely move into the rotation until righty Henderson Alvarez recovers from shoulder inflammation that sent him to the disabled list.
Turner was considered a top prospect when Miami acquired him two years ago in the five-player trade that sent right-hander Anibal Sanchez to the Detroit Tigers.
