The Washington Nationals called top infield prospect Trea Turner up this afternoon in a "surprising" move. So what role will Turner fill for the Nationals? What did manager Matt Williams and GM Mike Rizzo say about the decision to call him up? What can Nats fans who haven't been pining away for the day when the Nationals would #freetreaturner and following him in the minors expect from the 22-year-old infielder?

We aren't in the nation's capital today -- no one wants to pay us to cover the team in person on a daily basis so we have to pick our spots [sad face emoticon] -- so we thought we'd just collect everything we've seen out there today on the internet that might help you get to know Turner better and get a better idea of what to expect going forward...
