The Twins' starting rotation Nik Turley experiment has come to an end.

Turley took the mound Thursday night after a 5-hour rain delay, but his stint lasted just two outs. He gave up 6 hits and 5 runs (all earned) in the first inning, and was pulled before he could record a third out.

Shortly after the game, the Twins announced Turley was headed back down to the minors.

If you're looking for a reason why he was sent down, his numbers in his three major league starts speak for themselves:

Twins called up two arms (Trevor Hildenberger, and Dillon Gee) yesterday to join the rotation, which, clearly, continues to be a work in progress.
