Turner made the team out of Spring Training, but then allowed eight runs in just one inning of work in the 20-run disaster against the Phillies. Turner will work in Triple-A and try to make his way back onto the 40-man roster.
Miami Marlins pitcher Jacob Turner has been informed that he has made the Opening Day roster.

Turner went five an third innings, only giving up three runs while striking out a batter.
While he has proven to be a valuable asset to the Nationals with his versatility, he has little fantasy upside at this point.
Turner earned the win in four innings of work on Wednesday evening. He only gave up two hits and fanned four batters.
It was surprising to see Turner come on in relief as he had previously been named the fifth starter after Ross's demotion. Playing on a strong National's team, Turner has a chance to win every start and should warrant some consideration of ownership in NL and deep leagues.
