I realize that he is still very young and has a lot of upside. However I am hearing that Andy Oliver is front runner for the 5th starters spot. Can Turner live up to the hype that he has surrounding him or is he a mid rotation starter at best?

Would you keep him in a keeper league or cut/trade him?

I would like to hold both Turner and Oliver if I could. Of course it all depends on who you would be replacing him with.

He is a mid-rotation starter at this point. That doesn't mean he can't be the stud many think he was a year or so ago. It takes guys sometime to figure things out especially starters. Who was the last starter you can remember that became a stud over night. Even Kershaw was a mid-rotation guy for a year or two.

Tigers manager Jim Leyland said Monday that they are backing off prospect right-hander Jacob Turner for a few days because he is going through a "dead-arm period."
Turner's velocity was down during Monday's start against the Mets, in which he was knocked around for six runs -- five earned -- over 1 2/3 innings. The 20-year-old entered spring training as a possible candidate for the fifth starter job, but it's increasingly likely that he'll open the season in the minors.
