Teixeira impressed with Jacob Turner

From the Detroit News

Mark Teixeira was recently interviewed by Buster Olney of ESPN. When asked what young pitcher impressed him the most, Teixeira said, without hesitation, “”Jacob Turner. He struck me out with a high fastball, and you just don’t see many young pitchers with the kind of late life on their fastball that he has.”

Turner was the 9th pick overall last year, and was given a $5.5 million contract from the Tigers to forgo his UNC scholarship and start and career in Motown.
