It's the first time he's done that since going on the disabled list last week. He's also resumed throwing from up to 90 feet. Turner will be eligible to come off the disabled list on Monday, though he'll probably need a little more time than that. Logan Forsythe and Enrique Hernandez have been filling in at third base.

Dodgers placed 3B Justin Turner on the 10-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts indicated on MLB Network Radio on Friday that Justin Turner (hamstring) will likely be placed on the 10-day disabled list.

"We're playing with a four-man bench and to carry (Turner) for even three or four days and not play, it looks like it's going to be the 10-day," Roberts said. The Dodgers haven't revealed the results of the MRI on Turner's right hamstring yet, but it doesn't sound like they're interest in playing a man short even if Turner doesn't need a full 10 days. The club should have more info on a timetable for Turner later Friday. Brett Eibner is expected to replace him on the roster.
