Turner hit .300/.362/.388 in AAA. Not sure he's going to be much more than a 25th man type. With Sutton and Richar around, there clearly wasn't room for him in Cincy.
Waring was once considered the best defensive 3B in the MWL, but it was pretty faint praise at the time since no one stood out at the time. At this point, he's considered more of a 1B than a 3B. He was also slightly older than most of the pitchers he had success against.
