Stuart Turner has languished on the bench for the Cincinnati Reds this year, his only real respite coming when he spent a stint on the DL. As a Rule 5 draftee, that’s unfortunately a logistical issue, since the Reds like him enough to want to keep him in the system, but have been forced to keep him on the active roster this year to ensure that’s a viability for future years.

Well, Turner got just his eighth start of the season on Wednesday, and he responded by clubbing his 1st career big league homer. With Devin Mesoraco currently on the paternity list, Turner got a shot at a start, and chipped in with a 2nd deck dinger that helped show why the Reds were so interested in him at all.

Congrats, Stu, and here’s to a few more PAs down the stretch.
