Right-hander Spencer Turnbull and Philadelphia Phillies finalize 1-year contract

CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) - Right-hander Spencer Turnbull and the Philadelphia Phillies finalized a one-year contract on Wednesday.

Turnbull was 1-4 with a 7.26 ERA in seven starts for Detroit last year. The 31-year-old had Tommy John surgery on July 29, 2021, and returned to a major league mound last April 1. He didn't pitch after May 6 because of neck discomfort.

Turnbull pitched a no-hitter at Seattle on May 18, 2021, his only complete game in 60 major league starts. A second-round draft pick by the Tigers in 2014, he was 12-29 with a 4.55 ERA in five seasons with Detroit.

He became a free agent in November when the Tigers failed to offer a 2024 contract.

Philadelphia designated right-hander McKinley Moore for assignment to open a roster spot.
