In Yahoo, Turner has 1B/2B/3B/OF eligibility.  I remember he was a prospect the Tigers wanted to keep but since nobody's untouchable he was eventually traded.

Now here he is as the Mets every day 2B...  What kind of skills or categories can this guy help us in?  I don't know much about him, but his eligibility is nice, and if he was a hot prospect for a while I wonder what he can offer?

2B is so very thin.

Jacob Turner was the Det pitching prospect. Justin Turner came up w the Reds and and Os before now the Mets, and is worthless in any format.  Low OBP, power, speed, and playing time w/o some injuries. No position is so thin that this guys is worth grabbin, be willing to bet this is the only site w a player thread on him lol. And by accident at that ha

Murphy is the everyday 2B.  Turner is eligible at all IF positions, but not in the OF (although he did log some spring innings out there).  While the ability to play several positions makes him valuable to the Mets (and landed him a place on my watch list), he's not worth grabbing at this time.  When injuries strike later in the year, he may be a useful bench add in daily leagues.
