Spencer Turnbull picks up win on Wednesday

Detroit Tigers right-hander Spencer Turnbull allowed just one run in five innings in Game 2 of a Wednesday doubleheader against the Pirates. Detroit went on to win 5-2.

Fantasy Impact

Turnbull struck out six and walked two in his season debut. The veteran hurler had been on the COVID-19 list since March 24. He should be fine to trust as a streamer in plus matchups going forward.

Spencer Turnbull to make season debut on Wednesday

Tigers RHP Spencer Turnbull will make his season debut on Wednesday against the Pirates.

Fantasy Impact

Turnbull has been on the IL due to COVID-19 protocols, but he's ready to return to the team's rotation. He hasn't pitched more than five innings at the alternate site, so fantasy managers looking to stream him shouldn't expect too deep of an outing.

Spencer Turnbull (COVID-19) expected to throw four or five innings Thursday

Tigers pitcher Spencer Turnbull (COVID-19) will throw four or five innings at the alternate site in Toledo on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Turnbull was placed on the COVID-19 list on March 24th. He's ramping up his activity and will throw four or five innings at the alternate site Thursday. Turnbull could return to the Tigers rotation by the end of April if everything goes well on Thursday.

Spencer Turnbull (COVID-19) reports to alternate site on Friday

Tigers RHP Spencer Turnbull (COVID-19) reported to the team's alternate site on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Turnbull will begin throwing either simulated games or against another team's alternate site. He'll look to rejoin the Tigers' rotation sometime over the next few weeks.

Spencer Turnbull (COVID-19) to miss first few series

Tigers starting pitcher Spencer Turnbull won't be available for at least the first few series, according to manager A.J. Hinch. Turnbull is currently on the COVID-19 injured list.

Fantasy Impact

The Tigers haven't explicitly stated that Turnbull has tested positive for COVID-19, but his placement on the COVID-19 injured list and the timetable for return that Hinch announced on Sunday certainly indicate that is indeed the case. In 2020, we saw multiple players test positive for the virus early in the season and then never quite look right the rest of the way. Others, though, returned and appeared unaffected. Monitor the right-hander's status in the coming weeks but don't expect to see him back before at least mid-April.
