    • Pirates' Nik Turley: Claimed by Pirates
      By RotoWire Staff

      Turley was claimed off waivers by the Pirates on Monday, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Turley spent most of the 2017 season at Triple-A Rochester as a member of the Twins organization. Over 18 games, 10 of which were starts, he put together a 2.66 ERA and impressive 28.9 percent K-rate. However, his success didn't translate to the majors. Across 10 games (17.2 innings) with the big club he was knocked for an 11.21 ERA and 2.15 WHIP.

    • Twins' Nik Turley: Recalled from Triple-A
      By RotoWire Staff

      Turley was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Friday. The 27-year-old southpaw has been rocked (12.51 ERA) in 13.2 innings in the big leagues this year, including three starts, but he figures to occupy a mop-up role out of the bullpen in September. He has a 2.66 ERA and 79 strikeouts in 67.2 innings at Triple-A -- splitting time between starting and relieving.

    • Twins' Nik Turley: Sent back to minors
      By RotoWire Staff

      Turley was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday, MLB.com reports. The Twins had designated Turley as their 26th man for Monday's doubleheader with the White Sox, so it was fully expected that he'd report back to Rochester at the conclusion of the twin bill. Turley ended up pitching in long relief in the first game of the doubleheader, covering 3.2 innings and giving up two runs on two hits and a walk while striking out three batters.

    • Twins' Nik Turley: Will serve as 26th man Monday
      By RotoWire Staff

      The Twins optioned Turley to Triple-A Rochester, but subsequently recalled him to serve as the 26th man for Monday's doubleheader with the White Sox. In order to facilitate the addition of Game 1 starter Tim Melville to the active roster, Turley was optioned in what amounted to a procedural move. Though Turley will stick around with the big club for now, he'll likely be bound for Rochester once the doubleheader is completed, as either Melville or Dillon Gee -- the Game 2 starter Monday -- will assume the long-relief role that had previously fallen to Turley.

    • Turley was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Thursday, Phil Miller of the Star Tribune reports. He'll head back to the minors after another disastrous outing Thursday in which he failed to get out of the first inning while allowing five earned runs to the White Sox. Minnesota will fill his roster spot with a corresponding move Friday.
