Turner makes first start of Spring
JUPITER, Fla. — Jacob Turner will be making his first start of Spring Training on Thursday when he is set to throw two innings against the Cardinals at Roger Dean Stadium.
Miami will be the visiting team.
Also on Thursday, at 10 a.m., Marlins top prospect, Jose Fernandez, will start in a B Game against St. Louis. The game will be played on a back field on the Cardinals side of the complex.
In injury news, Justin Ruggiano, who has a strained lower back, did some light throwing on Thursday morning. He isn’t yet ready to swing a bat, but he also tracked pitches in the morning.
