Overreaction #3: Spencer Turnbull is cooked
I hyped up Spencer Turnbull all spring long just for him to lay an egg in his first start back from Tommy John surgery. From the get-go, he had no command. The velocity and stuff was there, but he couldn't hit his spots. We've seen this Spencer Turnbull before.
However, Turnbull has a tendency to get pretty amped up, and there's a good chance that's what happened on Saturday. It was his first start in almost two years. I'm sure emotions were running high for him.
This is the easiest overreaction to squash for me. I'm still pretty high on Turnbull this year. He just needs to settle down a bit and focus on throwing strikes.
