Derrick Turnbow has accepted his assignment to Triple A Nashville, rather than forfeit his remaining salary. Four teams (the Mets not among them) had interest in trading for Turnbow. Brewers GM Doug Melvin was frank with MLB.com's Adam McCalvy about the situation - teams wanted him to eat much of the $2.5MM Turnbow is owed, but weren't offering decent prospects.
Turnbow passed through waivers because no team wanted to take on his salary while keeping him in the bigs.
