Marlins Reach Agreement With Derrick Turnbow

SATURDAY, 10:16pm: Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports that Turnbow's deal is worth $600K if he makes the team, plus an additional $50K in incentives.  Damon Lapa, Turnbow's agent, said "there were offers with significantly more money....But Derrick realizes he's at a point in his career where the choice he makes is more important than income potential."

FRIDAY, 10:35am: The Marlins reached an agreement on a minor league deal with reliever Derrick Turnbow, tweets ESPN's Jerry Crasnick.

Turnbow, 32, hasn't been effective in the Majors since 2005 with the Brewers, a season that prompted Doug Melvin to give him a three-year, $6.5MM extension.  Amid a rotator cuff injury, Turnbow logged a total of 30.6 pro innings the last two years.  He requested his release from the Rangers' Triple A club in May.  The Marlins have resurrected the careers of many relievers, but Turnbow wil be a challenge.

The Dodgers, Diamondbacks, Rockies, and Cardinals were among the other teams interested in Turnbow.  Earlier this month, he auditioned for at least 16 clubs.
