Turner has been shut down indefinitely by the Cubs due to persistent soreness in his pitching elbow, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

Turner (elbow) is expected to begin a rehab assignment at Double-A Tennessee on Tuesday.

Turner, who has been on the DL since the start of the season, is expected to start Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader for the Smokies. He remains without a firm return timetable, but if everything goes well on the rehab assignment, he could return to the Cubs prior to the end of the month. Turner, who split last season between Miami and Chicago, posted a 6.49 ERA in eight appearances (six starts) for the Cubs.

Turner (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day DL on Sunday.

The good news here is that Turner has no ligament damage, as a second opinion confirmed, but he will need a month to let the bone bruise and mild flexor strain in his right arm heal. Turner made just one Cactus League appearance before the injury forced him out of action. While Turner is out of minor league options, he will be able to spend up to 30 days on a minor league rehab assignment before being activated.

Turner was diagnosed with a flexor strain and a bone bruise on his pitching elbow Tuesday and he will be shut down for now, ESPN Chicago's Jesse Rogers reports.

This is troubling news for Turner, who had an outside shot at challenging for the No. 5 starter spot in Chicago. Until we learn more, it would be best to avoid Turner in most formats, as a strain to his throwing elbow could be the precursor for him missing significant time.
