But is he old enough and mature enough to put all of those things together?

An emotional Turner met with reporters following meeting with his teammates, coaches and manager Dave Martinez.
Column: What is the punishment for offensive tweets?
Sean Newcomb had enough problems explaining the pitch he threw to Chris Taylor when he was within a strike of throwing a no hitter against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Then he had to call reporters back to the locker room Sunday in Atlanta to offer something even more difficult to explain — racist, homophobic tweets from his teenage years that Newcomb says do not reflect the man he is now.
As major leaguers Trea Turner, Sean Newcomb and Josh Hader face up to racist and homophobic tweets they sent as teenagers, publicist Lauren Walsh recalls how she dealt with a football player who had offensive Facebook posts years before he prepared for the NFL draft.
She went through his whole social media history, taking down any posts that even raised an eyebrow.

Nationals’ Trea Turner benched for not hustling
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Washington Nationals shortstop Trea Turner was benched for Tuesday night's game against Milwaukee, a day after failing to run to first base after a fourth-inning bunt in a 6-1 loss.
