IT TOOK A BLISTER, BUT SPENCER TURNBULL’S BACK IN PHILS ROTATION!

By Sam Bush

The Phillies placed Taijuan Walker on the injured list with a blister.

And Spencer Turnbull will start Wednesday against the Detroit Tigers, his former team, and for the foreseeable future.

“He’s a good teammate and I want him to be back to being his best as soon as he can,” Turnbull said.

“I’ve enjoyed being in the bullpen and learning a new thing. I want to do whatever I can to help the team win. But, obviously, I prefer starting.”

Walker had a 5.60 ERA in 10 starts. He could not throw his best pitch, the splitter, with effectiveness. Opponents hit .426 with a .704 slugging percentage against it.
