Rany Jazayerli on the Marlins' Jacob Turner move

1

Four months ago, the Marlins could have gotten a huge haul of talent for Turner, yet they cut him even though he was pitching better than ever. Turner’s FIP this year is the best of his career. His average fastball velocity (92.6 mph) is the highest of his career. Releasing him defies explanation. If you were to put together a list of the pitchers most likely to be the Arrieta of 2015, Turner might rank at the very top. I’m sure the Marlins had their reasons for getting rid of him, but then I’m sure they had their reasons for getting rid of Millar 11 years ago.

- Rany Jazayerli, noted baseball smart guy, over at Grantland. The Cubs are building a team in the right manner, the Marlins are going in the opposite direction, interestingly enough.
