Miami, FL (Sports Network) - The Miami Marlins have recalled pitcher Jacob Turner from Triple-A New Orleans.

Turner is scheduled to start Friday's game against the New York Mets.

The ninth overall pick of the Detroit Tigers in the 2009 draft, Turner reached the majors in 2011 with the Tigers and was 1-2 in six starts with them through 2012.

He was acquired by the Marlins in a trade that sent Omar Infante, Anibal Sanchez and a conditional draft pick to Detroit on July 23 of that year, which he ended by making seven starts with Miami and going 1-4 with a 3.38 earned run average.

Turner began 2013 in the minors and was 3-4 with a 4.47 ERA in 10 starts with New Orleans.

To make room on the roster for Turner, Miami optioned pitcher Duane Below to New Orleans.
