Turner to DL, Caminero gets called up

WASHINGTON — Jacob Turner, who was scratched from making his scheduled start on Wednesday, has been placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 4.

To fill Turner’s roster spot, the Marlins announced reliever Arquimedes Caminero was being recalled from Triple-A New Orleans.

Turner was lined up to start at Washington on Wednesday, but on Tuesday, he strained his right shoulder while taking batting practice in the cage near the dugout.

Brad Hand is making the start in place of Turner on Wednesday.

Caminero, who had a strong Spring Training, provides bullpen depth, and the hard-throwing right-hander is an option to pitch multiple innings.
