      Pirates' Nik Turley: Claimed by Pirates

      Nik Turley was claimed off waivers by the Pittsburgh 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

      Nik 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

      Nik Turley was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday, MLB.com reports.The Minnesota 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

      The Minnesota Twins optioned Nik 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.

      Twins' Nik Turley: Recalled from Triple-A

      Nik Turley was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Thursday.Turley was summoned back to the big club to offer a fresh bullpen arm for Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Indians after the Minnesota Twins' bullpen pitched five innings in Game 1. With Dillon Gee unavailable after tossing 2.2 innings during the first game, Turley should offer length out of the bullpen. He has struggled during his brief time in the majors this season, posting a 16.39 ERA and 2.89 WHIP through 9.1 innings.

      Twins' Nik Turley: Optioned to minors after tough start

      Nik 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.

      Twins' Nik Turley: Exits in first frame

      Nik Turley (0-2) allowed five runs on six hits and recorded just two outs during Thursday's loss to the White Sox.The 27-year-old southpaw was overmatched Thursday, and Turley has now allowed 17 runs through just 9.1 innings over his three outings in the majors. The game was delayed because of weather, and it could have interrupted his rhythm leading into the start, but it's still likely that Turley needs more seasoning in the minors. If he sticks in the rotation for another turn, he lines up to face the Red Sox at Fenway Park next.

      Twins' Nik Turley: Tabbed for Thursday's start

      Nik Turley will make another big-league start Thursday against the White Sox, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.The Minnesota Twins' starting pitching plans were up in the air with Hector Santiago's (shoulder) return timeline still up in the air, but with his return still not imminent, Turley will log at least one more start in the majors. He was shelled for eight runs across 4.2 innings in his previous start, although his propensity for striking batters out in the minors gives him some semblance of appeal in deep formats as he heads into his upcoming clash with Jose Quintana and the South Siders.

      Twins' Nik Turley: Gets rocked again

      Nik Turley allowed eight runs on nine hits over 4.2 innings Friday against the Minnesota Twins. He struck out three and walked four.Coming off his major-league debut, Turley did not do much to impress, as he was on the hook for all of the runs Cleveland scored Friday night. Depending on the status of Hector Santiago (shoulder), it's possible Turley has taken his final turn in the rotation for the time being.
