(AP) — Although nobody on St. Louis’ roster has any major league experience with scheduled starter Jacob Turner, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny is quite familiar with the Detroit Tigers’ prized pitching prospect.

Turner is expected to be recalled from the minors to make his season debut for the Tigers in Wednesday afternoon’s series finale against the Cardinals and one of his former high school coaches.

After Justin Verlander led Detroit (33-35) to a 6-3 victory in Tuesday’s opener, St. Louis’ Jake Westbrook shut down the Tigers a night later in a complete-game 3-1 win.
