Joe Ross optioned, Jacob Turner moved into Nats rotation

A week after s spot start, Jacob Turner returns to the Nationals rotation following the demotion of Joe Ross. 

Tuner allowed three runs in his first start in Colorado but struggled in relief days later. Now he moves into thr rotation for what figures to be a brief stay.

The upside of Ross is well known but sporting a 7.47 ERA through three starts has left the Nationals needing the soon to be 24-year-old righty to figure it out. Ross made 19 starts with a 3.43 ERA last season and there is little reason to believe he will not figure it out sometime.
