Derrick Turnbow's comeback attempt with the Marlins is over. Now, he's hoping to salvage his career.
The former All-Star closer left in the eighth inning today after suffering severe pain in his right shoulder. He faced only two batters in a 12-3 loss to Washington, walking one and hitting another.
He will undergo an MRI on Wednesday; he said surgery is a possibility.
Never was sure he had a real chance of making the club, since his control has been really spotty for sometime. Probably due to his shoulder problems. But I really hate to see this happen, he deserves better. Everyone deserves better. Sadly, in life, that isn't how it works. We wish Derrick the best and a speedy recovery. He will be going to see Dr. Andrews and if Dr. Andrews can't fix the problem, no one can.
