Detroit Tigers: A check-up on starting pitcher Spencer Turnbull

+

The Detroit Tigers starting rotation has spanned 16 pitchers in 2022, but right-handed pitcher Spencer Turnbull was not one of them. He has been off the field recovering from Tommy John Surgery which cut his 2021 season down to just nine starts. It’s been a long road to recovery time for the right-hander. As the Detroit Tigers close out the 2022 season and the offseason is upon them, what can Turnbull bring to the rotation when he returns? There has to be hope that he can be a solid option at the front of the rotation upon his return.
