The National League East is rich with young pitching talent, but Jacob Turner and Mike Minor have not distinguished themselves during disappointing 2014 seasons. Turner takes the mound for the Miami Marlins on Tuesday when they visit Minor and the Atlanta Braves as both hurlers look to leave behind their first-half struggles. Turner posted a 3.74 ERA last season as a 22-year-old but has seen his ERA balloon above six and spent the last month in the bullpen, while the 26-year-old Minor won once in his past 10 starts while allowing four runs or more four times in his past seven outings.Miami left fielder Christian Yelich went 2-for-4 with a walk Monday and has at least one hit in nine of 10 career games at Atlanta, singling to start a two-run 10th as Miami took the series opener 3-1. Atlanta's offense - which has been inconsistent all season - continues showing signs of life as five of eight starters Monday are hitting .275 or higher. Justin Upton extended his hitting streak to six games for the Braves on Monday and has hit safely in 11 of his past 14 contests.
