2021 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Nik Turley in 2021. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
$Signed a minor-league contract with the Pirates in January of 2020.
Acquired by Athletics
POakland Athletics
January 14, 2021
Turley was traded from the Pirates to the Athletics on Thursday in exchange for cash considerations, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Oakland picked Turley up for cheap after he was designated for assignment by Pittsburgh earlier in the week. It's tough to get too excited about a 31-year-old with a 7.78 ERA in 39.1 career MLB innings, but he at least throws left-handed, which could help his chances of winning a relief role.

2014 Fantasy Outlook
Turley has slowly worked his way up the Yankees' system since his debut as an 18-year-old in 2008. Turley is big and athletic, and while he doesn't throw very hard, he excels at pounding the bottom of the strike zone with his fastball. He also features a plus curve and a changeup that can be excellent at times, but is inconsistent. Turley has consistently struck out about a batter per inning through his minor league career, and is likely to start 2014 at Triple-A. He could be the first pitcher the Yankees turn to if they need a spot starter, and while he doesn't have ace upside, Turley could pitch well enough to stick in the majors.
