Mets Claim Justin Turner from Orioles

By Unknown author

According to, the Mets claimed Justin Turner from the Baltimore Orioles.

The Baltimore Sports Report said this about Justin Turner.

"I know we have a lot of Turner fans out there, but I didn’t see him becoming the heir to Brian Roberts at second or ever becoming an everyday starting infielder.   He just didn’t have the bat for it.  It always stings to lose a potential complimentary piece however, and while he wasn’t getting many reps in Baltimore, it would have been good to have him around and try to work him into the mix down the line."

To me, he is just another utility man the Mets could use in case Alex Cora or someone on the bench gets injured.
