Turner, 20, took the loss on July 30 in his Major League debut, despite allowing just two runs on three hits over 5 1/3 innings. The right-hander also struck out six and walked three against the Angels.
With the Tigers opting to give American League Cy Young front-runner Justin Verlander an extra day before his next start, Turner will get the chance in the spot start. Manager Jim Leyland announced Turner would start after the Tigers' 11-4 loss to the Twins on Sunday.
Turner, drafted ninth overall by the Tigers in 2009, is 4-5 this season with a 3.44 ERA in 20 combined games at Double-A Erie and Triple-A Toledo. In three Triple-A starts, Turner is 1-0 with a 3.12 ERA, allowing six runs on 15 hits with 20 strikeouts and just three walks.
