More Of The Same For Turnbow
In his first AAA appearance for Nashville, Derrick Turnbow looked pretty much the way he did while up in the bigs for Milwaukee this season. He came in against Las Vegas in the 8th inning and proceeded to blow up as he did so many times this season. He recorded 1 out allowed 1 hit, three walks and 2 runs. He was removed from the game after throwing 25 pitches of those only 9 were thrown for strikes. Granted it was his first time pitching since Wednesday April 30th against Chicago when he got lit up. But if he can't even put together decent outings in AAA, the Brewers might be forced to just release him and eat that $3.2 million they owe him. I still hope Derrick figures things out because honestly when he is right he is almost un-hittable and could be a big help to the Brewers bullpen.
