Turner temps scouts with what he has right now and intrigues them with what he could develop. His fastball sits in the low 90s, topping out at 94 mph, and he has a very good slurve and changeup. He also has a big, strong frame at 6-foot-4 that makes some scouts believe that he could consistently throw in the mid 90s in a few years.
The team that drafts Turner will bet that he will improve his fastball velocity in the minor leagues. His present stuff isn’t good enough for a prolonged major league career.
Top 15 picks overall.
