“If you look at the bulk of his work, it just hasn't been to the standard that we need,” Hinch told reporters. “He's struggled every outing…at the end of the day it just wasn't sustainable….we have a pretty good plan in place for him to hopefully make it a short stint.”

Bottom Line: Turnbull will have an opportunity to get right

Getting sent down to Triple-A has to be a gut shot for Turnbull, but the fact of the matter is that he has not performed well enough to stick around at the MLB level. That being said, Hinch said the Tigers have a plan for Turnbull, and if he works hard and figures things out, it will not be long before he heads back to Detroit.
