Justin Turner went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI, two runs scored, one walk and a stolen base on Saturday.

The home run was of the three-run variety and was Turner's ninth of the season. That follows the two longballs he hit the night before. The stolen base was his first. Turner is batting .248 and has 28 runs and 30 RBI in 236 at-bats. Those are not the kind of numbers that will lead your fantasy team to the championship, but he can be useful as a backup or spot starter, especially if he has multi-position eligibility in your format.

Justin Turner went 3-for-5 with a pair of homers Friday to lead the Dodgers past the Brewers 3-2.

Turner drove in all three runs, homering in the first and eighth innings and then singling in Will Venable to end the game in the bottom of the 10th. It seems as though he's putting things together now after a miserable first two months -- he also homered Tuesday and he's hit in five straight -- so he'd be worth a try in any mixed leagues in which he was dropped.

Justin Turner is not in the Dodgers' lineup Thursday against the Brewers.

It appears to be a routine day off for the veteran third baseman. The Dodgers are giving Will Venable a shot in right field with Howie Kendrick filling in at third base. Turner is batting only .231 for the year with six homers and 23 RBI.

Justin Turner went 0-for-4 from the leadoff spot in the Dodgers lineup on Monday.

Manager Dave Roberts is trying new things, and while Turner entered tonight's game with a .228 average, his OBP was a respectable .329. Turner has been a big disappointment this year after back-to-back stellar campaigns in lesser roles, not to mention a fabulous March in the Cactus League. He still figures to get it going if he stays healthy, and the Dodgers have little alternative than to remain patient.

Turner opened the scoring with an RBI single in the first inning. He would later hit a two-run single in the eighth as part of a three-run insurance frame. The 31-year-old outfielder has yet to find any of his 2015 success and is batting a punch-less .242/.335/.356 over 149 at-bats. Last year, he finished the season with a .294/.370/.491 triple-slash.
