X-rays taken late Wednesday on Justin Turner's left pinkie showed up negative.
Turner was struck on his left hand by a Mike Leake pitch on Wednesday night, but it sounds like he avoided a major injury. "It got the tip of my pinkie and didn't have feeling in it for a couple of innings," the third baseman told reporters, "but I took some X-rays right away and everything’s good." Los Angeles will call up top infield prospect Corey Seager to provide some depth in case Turner needs a bit of rest. Sep 3 - 10:19 AM

Date:

Justin Turner is not in the Dodgers starting lineup on Sunday.

It's nothing more than a regular day of rest for Turner. Kike Hernandez is getting the start in his place at the hot corner with Joc Pederson starting in center field.
Aug 30 - 4:35 PM

Justin Turner went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's win against the Reds.

Turner made it a 3-0 game when he drilled a two-run home run to left field off of John Lamb in the third inning. In 10 games since returning from the disabled list, Turner is hitting a feeble .167 (6-for-36). He was on a torrid pace, as shown by his triple-slash line, which still stands at .303/.363/.534 along with his 15 home runs and 51 RBI.
Aug 25 - 11:06 PM

Dodgers activated INF Justin Turner from the 15-day disabled list.

It doesn't appear as though he's in the starting lineup on Thursday, but should be available off the bench. Before landing on the disabled list with a skin infection, Turner was slashing .323/.387/.563.
Aug 13 - 7:07 PM

Justin Turner (thigh) will be activated Thursday or Friday.

That is, of course, assuming nothing goes terribly wrong before then. Turner has been dealing with a nasty leg infection that forced him to the disabled list in late July. The Dodgers will certainly welcome Turner back with open arms, as the 30-year-old is batting .323/.387/.563 on the year.
Aug 12 - 7:36 PM

Justin Turner (thigh) is unlikely to return from the disabled list before Wednesday.

Due to the leg infection that has sidelined the hard-hitting infielder, Turner has still yet to resume running, so he'll need a bit longer than the minimum 15 days on the disabled list. Prior to being shelved, he was hitting a robust .323/.387/.563 with 13 home runs and 44 RBI.
Aug 9 - 6:43 PM

Justin Turner (thigh) expects to rejoin the Dodgers as soon as his 15-day disabled list stint is over.

Turner landed on the disabled list July 28 with a skin infection on his right thigh. He hasn't been cleared yet for baseball activities, but that should change soon.
Aug 4 - 5:43 PM

Dodgers placed INF Justin Turner on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 28, with a skin infection on his right thigh.

Alex Guerrero and Alberto Callaspo will continue to hold down the fort at the hot corner until Turner is ready to return. He's in the midst of an outstanding season offensively, slashing .323/.387/.563 with 13 homers and 44 RBI in just 254 at-bats.
Jul 31 - 6:55 PM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Wednesday that Justin Turner will miss a few more games due to the infection in his leg.

Turner was forced to sit out on Tuesday and Wednesday after a pimple in his leg became infected and required a trip to the emergency room. Look for Alberto Callaspo and Alex Guerrero to continue see additional playing time in his absence.
Jul 29 - 7:56 PM

Justin Turner remains out of the Dodgers starting lineup on Wednesday.

Turner was forced to the emergency room on Tuesday due to a pimple on his leg that became infected. Alex Guerrero will take his place at the hot corner.
Jul 29 - 6:30 PM

Justin Turner is not playing Tuesday due to a pimple on his leg that became infected, necessitating a visit to the emergency room after he had a reaction to medication.

Well, that's... appetizing. The Dodgers expect to know more on Turner later Tuesday, but he should be available to play Wednesday. Alberto Callaspo is at the hot corner Tuesday.
Jul 28 - 7:21 PM

Justin Turner is out of the Dodgers' lineup Tuesday.

It's just a day of rest for Turner. Alberto Callaspo is starting at third base against the A's.
Jul 28 - 5:50 PM

Justin Turner went 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in Friday's 7-2 win over the Mets.

Turner had three extra-base hits on the night against his former team, including an RBI double in the first inning and a solo homer in the third. The 30-year-old has hit safely in six straight games and continues to have a fantastic year. He's batting .327 with 13 home runs and a .958 OPS.
Jul 24 - 10:04 PM

Justin Turner hit his 12th home run of the season in a loss to the Braves on Tuesday.

A night after going 4-for-4 with three singles, Turner connected on a solo shot against Braves starter Alex Wood in Tuesday's contest. It ended up being his only hit on the night. The infielder continues to enjoy a breakout year in Los Angeles, as he's now hitting .322 with a .940 OPS and a career-high 12 homers.
Jul 21 - 10:48 PM

Justin Turner had four hits in as many at-bats, but the Dodgers fell to the Braves on Monday.

Turner's four hits, three of which were singles, accounted for nothing as he neither scored a run nor brought one in. The 30-year-old has showed no signs of slowing down as he's hitting an outstanding .323/.389/.545 with 11 home runs and 40 RBI.
