      White Sox's Jacob Turner: Re-signs with White Sox

      Turner re-signed with the White Sox on Wednesday, Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports. The one-year deal will reportedly pay Turner $1.5 million, which stands to be a reasonable gamble for a player of his talent level. The former ninth overall pick in the 2009 draft is still dealing with elbow soreness that essentially shut him down for all of the 2015 season, so there is some obvious concern. However, the 24-year-old could easily push for a spot in the back end of the White Sox's rotation should Turner's elbow hold up throughout spring training.

      Jacob Turner: Non-tendered by White Sox

      The White Sox declined to tender Turner a contract for 2016, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports. Turner was brought in on a waiver claim in late October, but the White Sox ultimately decided the right-hander was too much of a risk given his persistent elbow troubles. The ninth overall pick in 2009, he has a 4.97 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in 298.2 career innings at the major league level.

      White Sox claim SP Jacob Turner off waivers Tuesday

      Starting pitcher Jacob Turner was claimed off waivers by the White Sox on Tuesday. This is a bit of a gamble on their part considering Turner sat out almost all of 2015 and was not effective as a starter in 2014. However, Turner used to be a top prospect, and still has some room for growth since he's only 24 years old. The White Sox rotation is pretty crowded, but Turner still has a chance to compete for a spot in the back of the rotation if his elbow can hold up throughout spring training.

Turner will take a month off from throwing to let his injury heal, and likely open the year on the disabled list. "I just noticed it a little bit the day after [his outing March 5]," Turner said. "It felt like it was something I should get checked out. This wasn't something I was looking at it possibly being. It could be worse. I'll take the time off now and not make it worse. The way they explained it to me is that if I did keep pitching, it could get worse."
