Turnbow exits with injury

Derrick Turnbow was removed in the eighth inning after hitting a batter with a pitch.

The right-handed reliever, who is trying to make the Marlins as a non-roster invitee, favored his right shoulder on a day he struggled to throw strikes.

Turnbow walked Pete Orr on four pitches, and his sixth pitch to Danny Espinosa hit the Nationals shortstop.

Twice in the inning, Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez and trainer Sean Cunningham came to the mound. The second visit, Turnbow was removed for lefty Taylor Tankersley.

Turnbow has battled shoulder tendinitis this spring.

Eight of the 10 pitches Turnbow threw were balls.

In 2001, Turnbow suffered a broken right elbow.

“This pain is 10 times worse than that broken elbow,” Turnbow said.”Whatever it is, I’m going to be shut down for a while. My chance for the big league team is over, either way.”
