Sitting down with Tulsa Drillers closer Daniel Turpen


I recently had the chance to sit down with Tulsa Drillers relief pitcher Daniel Turpen. The 24-year-old right-hander has emerged as the closer for the Drillers in recent weeks. Over his last 10 appearances heading into Wednesday night's game at Springfield, Turpen had posted a 2.61 ERA and earned six saves. Overall this season, Turpen is 2-3 with a 3.12 ERA and seven saves (the second-highest number on the team).

It's been quite a year for Turpen, who was in the San Francisco Giants organization last July. Since then, he has been a part of the Yankees and Red Sox systems before being traded to the Rockies in late March in a deal that sent catcher Michael McKenry to the Red Sox.

During our talk, I had a chance to talk to Turpen about his year filled with moves and his new role as the Tulsa closer.
