Justin Turner (illness) is not in the Dodgers' lineup Saturday against the Braves.

Turner is battling an upper respiratory illness though manager Dave Roberts said he'll be available off the bench and should return to the starting lineup on Sunday. Logan Forsythe will man the hot corner in his place and hit fifth against Braves hurler Julio Teheran. Turner has hit .304 with a homer and three RBI since the All-Star break.
Jul 22 - 5:46 PM

Justin Turner went 2-for-3 with a walk, a homer, and two RBI in the Dodgers' defeat of the Marlins on Sunday.

Turner opened the game's scoring with a solo shot off Marlins starter Chris O'Grady in the top of the first inning and he drove in the Dodgers' second run with a sac fly in the top of the third. The veteran third baseman has a tremendous .374/.469/.584 batting line with 11 home runs and 39 RBI in 68 games this season for Los Angeles.
Jul 16 - 4:42 PM

Justin Turner clubbed a pair of home runs and drove in three on Sunday as the Dodgers edged the Royals 5-2.

Turner got the Dodgers on the board with a solo shot off of Danny Duffy in the first inning, then added to their lead with a two-run blast in the third. The All-Star third baseman is hitting an absurd .377/.473/.583 with 10 homers and 37 RBI at the break.
Jul 9 - 7:32 PM

Justin Turner is not in Friday's starting lineup against the Royals.

Turner, who won the NL Final Vote for the All-Star Game, is presumably getting a breather with a big week ahead of him. Logan Forsythe will fill in at third base while Chase Utley gets a start at second.
Jul 7 - 6:53 PM

Justin Turner won the NL Final Vote for next week's All-Star Game in Miami.

Turner received over 20 million votes, the most ever for the Final Vote. This will be his first All-Star appearance. The fans got it right as Turner's .384 average made him a shoe-in. If not for a three-week hamstring injury, he probably wouldn't have needed the Fan Vote to get in. Kris Bryant finished second in the NL voting. Mike Moustakas beat out Xander Bogaerts to win the AL vote.
Jul 6 - 6:33 PM

Justin Turner went 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBI versus the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

Turner has started 57 games this year and had multiple hits in 27 of them, which is why he's hitting a cool .384. He's also walked more than he's struck out (26 to 25).
Jul 5 - 12:46 AM

Justin Turner went 3-for-3 with a two-run homer and three runs scored Friday against the Padres.

Someone from the quartet of Turner, Nolan Arenado, Kris Bryant and Anthony Rendon figures to get left off the All-Star team. Heck, Jake Lamb and Travis Shaw aren't bad either, though the first four all have higher WARs this year and better histories. Turner has been the best of the bunch while on the field, hitting .390 with a 1.031 OPS in 57 games. Rendon, though, has the best WAR, since Turner has missed one-third of the season. Still, one of those two probably isn't going to make it, unless maybe Bryant has to skip the game.
Jul 1 - 1:46 AM

Justin Turner was hitless in two at-bats with three walks and a run scored in Saturday's win against Colorado.

Turner's average has tumbled from .399 to .388 over the past four games, although he has a three-hit game during the span. He has also scored at least one run in seven straight games. He didn't get aboard via hit on Saturday, but he was still very productive with the three walks. That's now 21 walks and just 25 strikeouts across 188 at-bats this season.
Jun 25 - 3:03 AM

Justin Turner is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mets.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said that Turner's legs are "a little heavy" right now, hence the day off. He missed three weeks with a hamstring injury earlier this season and the team will continue to play it safe with him when necessary. Logan Forsythe will play third in his place on Wednesday and is hitting fifth.
Jun 21 - 8:43 PM

Justin Turner finished 4-for-4 with a two-run home run, a walk, two runs scored and four RBI in Monday's win against the Mets.

Turner burned his former team, giving him three consecutive multi-hit games to raise his average to a gaudy .399. He has homered in back-to-back games with seven RBI, and he is now slashing .399/.478/.549 overall on the season with a stellar 1.027 OPS. Turner has hit safely in nine in a row since coming off the 10-day disabled list, and 14 straight games overall.
Jun 20 - 3:58 AM

Justin Turner went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer in the Dodgers' victory over the Reds on Sunday.

Turner went deep off Reds reliever Wandy Peralta in the top of the sixth inning to put the Dodgers ahead 8-1. They'd go on to win the slugfest 8-7. Turner has a stellar .385/.464/.521 batting line in 47 games this season, though Sunday's homer was just his third of 2017. We'd expect more power production in the coming months.
Jun 18 - 4:56 PM

Justin Turner is not in the Dodgers' lineup Saturday against the Reds.

Turner returned from the DL on Friday and may not be ready to play in back-to-back games yet. Logan Forsythe is filling in for him at the hot corner and batting seventh against Reds starter Asher Wojciechowski. Turner should be back for Sunday's series finale and will probably be available off the bench should the Dodgers need a pinch-hitter on Saturday.
Jun 10 - 7:28 PM

Justin Turner homered and was hit by a pitch in his first game back from the disabled list Friday.

The homer was just his second in 143 at-bats this year. The HBP, on the other hand, was his eighth. It'd helped him amass a .455 OBP.
Jun 10 - 2:26 AM

Dodgers activated 3B Justin Turner from the 10-day disabled list.

Turner is ready to go after missing the last three weeks with a strained right hamstring. He'll be at third base against Amir Garrett and the Reds on Friday.
