Nik Turley Signs w/ San Francisco

Nik Turley pitching for the Staten Island Yankees in 2010 (Robert M Pimpsner)

Nik Turley was not tendered a contract from the New York Yankees after being designated for assignment and assigned off the 40 man roster this past spring training and is now a member of the San Francisco Giants. Turley battled an arm injury in 2014 which led to the DFA before returning for 14 games while posting a 4.62 ERA.

Turley is headed to the Giants Triple-A squad after signing a minor league deal and will look to get back the extreme control that made him so attractive to the Yankees. Turley will not blow you away with his 90 MPH average fastball but he can spot an above average curveball and changeup about anywhere he wants to any time he wants to.

Good luck Nik, we hate to lose you in the organization but we wish you nothing but the best of luck in SF!
