Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that while the Dodgers "love" impending free agent Justin Turner, they could let him walk if another team bids big on him.
Heyman says that the Dodgers "are very cognizant of age generally" and if another team blows Turner away with an offer, "it’s no certainty they’ll match it." Turner, who will turn 32 in a month, hit an excellent .296/.364/.492 in his three years in Los Angeles and slugged a career-high 27 home runs in 2016. The Dodgers will extend him a qualifying offer, so they'll recoup a draft pick if they lose him. Oct 23 - 8:28 AM

Justin Turner went 1-for-3 with a two-run single in Wednesday's 10-2 loss to the Cubs in Game 4 of the NLCS.

Turner came through with a two-run single in the fifth inning to draw the Dodgers to within 5-2. The Cubs then roared back with a five-run sixth to essentially end the possibility of any true comeback drama. The 31-year-old third baseman has picked up a hit in three of four games this series. He belted a solo home run in Game 3 for his lone LCS homer.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports the Dodgers have had "very preliminary contract talks" with impending free agent Justin Turner.

Turner is sure to test the free agent market after the World Series -- one of the weakest free agent markets in recent memory -- but the Dodgers could definitely win those sweepstakes. Turner is having a big postseason for Los Angeles and he batted .275/.339/.493 with 27 home runs and 90 RBI in 151 games during the regular season. Long underrated, the 31-year-old third baseman is about to get paid in a big way.

Justin Turner knocked in two runs with a triple in the seventh inning as the Dodgers beat the Nationals 4-3 in Game 5 of the NLDS on Thursday to advance to the NLCS.

The Dodgers scored all four of their runs in a marathon seventh inning. After Joc Pederson tied the game with a leadoff homer against Max Scherzer, Carlos Ruiz put them ahead with an RBI single off Sammy Solis. However, Turner’s triple to deep center field off Shawn Kelley proved to be the difference in the ballgame. Turner went 6-for-15 (.400) with five RBI, five walks, and five runs scored in the series. The Nationals will face the Cubs in the NLCS, beginning on Saturday in Chicago.

Justin Turner is out of the Dodgers' starting lineup Monday afternoon against the Reds.

Turner now has 23 homers on the year -- 20 of which have come since June 7 -- and 72 RBI, batting .278/.345/.516 through 113 games. He's been an incredible find for the Dodgers these past three seasons.
