Marlins Sign Derrick Turnbow

It just wouldn't be a new season if the Marlins weren't attempting to revive the career of a fallen closer. 

The Fish have signed Derrick Turnbow to a Minor League deal with an invitation to Spring Training. Jose Veras and Danny Richar also signed Minor League deals with the Marlins.

Adding experienced depth to the bullpen has been a priority for the Marlins.

The club took a step in addressing that area on Friday by coming to terms with Derrick Turnbow.

The Marlins noted on Friday they have Minor League deals with Turnbow, right-hander Jose Veras and infielder Danny Richar.

All three have big league invitations.

Turnbow didn't see any Big League action last season, after a disastrous 2008 in which he pitched just 6.1 innings--with god-awful results--before an MRI revealed he had a torn labrum. Um, good stuff. But hey, he was real good five years ago, and should the Marlins' attempt at career revival miraculously work out (and it doesn't work out just as often as it does), Leo Nunez could end up with a little competition.
