Tigers September Roster Expansion Includes Jacob Turner, Carlos Guillen

Jacob Turner and Carlos Guillen are among the Tigers players called up as part of September roster expansions.

Top Tigers pitching prospect Jacob Turner will hang around with the big club for the rest of the season, along with a few other familiar names as the team made its September call-ups today.

Sept. 1 is the first day teams can expand their rosters. Turner is currently making his second start of the season against the Kansas City Royals.

He wasn't alone making the trip up from Triple-A Toldeo, however. Second basemen Will Rhymes and Carlos Guillen also joined the team, along with outfielder Andy Dirks.

Rhymes has been having a great season for Toledo after being sent down earlier this year, hitting .306 with 24 RBI in 104 games for the Mud Hens.

Dirks was having a decent season as part of the outfield rotation, but was sent down to make room for the return of Bradon Inge. Dirks hit .308 in seven August games with four RBI and a home run.

Guillen was reactivated from the disabled list. He cooled off right before going to the DL, but has played well since joining the Mud Hens a few days ago for a rehab stint. He was 5-for-8 in three games with an RBI and a double.

Turner started the year at Double-A Erie but joined the Mud Hens for his last three games. He was 3-5 with a 3.48 ERA in 17 games with Erie and was 1-0 with a 3.12 ERA at Toledo. Turner totaled 110 strikeouts and 35 walks between the two clubs.
