Turner is expected to start Wednesday against the Reds, CSNChicago.com reports.

The team has yet to confirm, but Turner is not listed as being available out of the bullpen Saturday and thus appears destined to take Edwin Jackson's spot in the rotation. With an off day Monday, the Cubs will likely move Travis Wood up to start Tuesday on normal rest and turn to Turner on Wednesday. Turner gave up one run in two innings of relief Tuesday in his second outing with Chicago, and now sports a 5.77 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in 22 appearances (12 starts) this season.

Turner will pitch out of the bullpen with the Cubs for the time being, MLB.com's Carrie Muskat reports.

With both Kyle Hendricks and Tsuyoshi Wada pitching well for the Cubs at the two back-end spots of the rotation, Turner will have to bide his time in long relief until further notice. The 23-year-old was horrendous in both starting and bullpen capacities for the Marlins this season, but he's young enough to rebound from those woes and provide the Cubs with some long-term utility.

Turner will either join the rotation for the Cubs or be the long reliever out of the bullpen. He posted a 5.97 ERA and 1.65 WHIP over 78.1 innings with the Marlins this year, but the Cubs will look to get more out of the 23-year-old starter.

Turner was designated for assignment Tuesday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Turner lost his spot in the rotation when the Marlins acquired Jarred Cosart at the deadline but quickly gained it back when Henderson Alvarez (shoulder) hit the DL. However, he had a disastrous outing Sunday, allowing five runs on nine hits in just four innings. The loss dropped him to 4-7 on the season and raised his ERA to 5.97. With Turner off the 40-man, southpaw Brian Flynn was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans.

He carries an ugly 6.03 ERA, 1.59 WHIP, and 48/19 K/BB ratio. Turner will take on the Astros in Houston when he takes the mound next.
