Justin Turner blasted a pair of home runs and drove in five runs in Thursday's victory over the Nationals.

Both longballs came off of Stephen Strasburg, as Turner launched a slider in the first inning for a two-run shot and then a fastball in the third for a three-run homer. Turner put up a .235/.335/.343 batting line with three homers in his first 50 games this season after last October's microfracture surgery on his knee. However, he's been mashing the ball since and now has a career-high 17 longballs to go along with a nice .267/.345/.482 line.

Justin Turner went 3-for-5 with a double and two runs scored in a win over the Nationals on Tuesday.

Turner now has 18 hits in 55 July at-bats, good for a .327 average this month, and he's scored 11 runs in that span. After a bumpy start, the hot stretch has Turner's overall line up to .266/.344/.467 with 15 homers, 50 RBI and 43 runs scored.
Jul 19 - 11:29 PM

Justin Turner swatted his 15th home run of the season on Sunday, but it wasn't enough to lead the Dodgers past the Diamondbacks in Arizona.

Turner certainly did his part. His two-run blast in the eighth inning finally got the Dodgers on the board. He then added on with a two-run single in the ninth, cutting the deficit to one run, but that's where the Dodgers offense fizzled out. He finished the day 2-for-5 and is now hitting .261/.341/.462 with 15 bombs and 50 RBI on the year.

Justin Turner went 2-for-7 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 14-inning loss to the Orioles.

Turner got his damage in very early, swatting a two-run tater off Orioles starter Kevin Gausman in the first inning. He would later add a single. The home run was his 12th of the season. Turner hit a career-high 16 home runs in 2015. It would be a surprise if he didn't best that mark some time in August, if not sooner.
Jul 6 - 9:41 PM

Justin Turner went 3-for-4 and scored twice in the Dodgers' win on Saturday.

One of the hits was a double. Turner has been on a bit of a roll lately. He was awesome in part-time duty the last two years. He had an .897 OPS in 2014 and an .861 OPS in 2015. This year as an everyday player his stats have taken a step back but he has still been good. He is slashing .262/.341/.446 with 11 home runs.
Jul 3 - 2:12 AM

Justin Turner (hamstring) is in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers.

Turner was pulled from Monday's showdown with the Pirates due to a hamstring cramp and sat out Tuesday's contest. As expected, this was something of a precautionary move. In Wednesday's return to the lineup, Turner is slated to hit third.
Jun 29 - 6:33 PM

Justin Turner (hamstring) is not in the Dodgers starting lineup on Tuesday.

Turner was removed from Monday night's game due to a hamstring cramp and is likely sitting out again as a precautionary measure. Chris Taylor is starting in his place at the hot corner and will bat eighth against Chase Anderson and the Brewers.
Jun 28 - 4:56 PM

Justin Turner was removed from Monday's game against the Pirates due to a hamstring cramp.

His exit was precautionary, so it doesn't sound like a major concern. Consider him day-to-day for now.
Jun 27 - 4:35 PM

Justin Turner exited Monday's game against the Pirates in the ninth inning with a possible injury.

Turner appeared to have some cramping in his leg before exiting. The Dodgers should provide an update after the game.
Jun 27 - 4:07 PM

Justin Turner continued his hot-hitting ways in Sunday's loss to the Pirates, going 2-for-3 with a homer and three RBI.

Turner accounted for all of the Dodgers offense in this one, smacking a two-run homer off of Chad Kuhl in the third inning and adding on an RBI double in the fifth. He finished the night 2-for-3 and is now slashing .250/.332/.437 with 11 homers and 37 RBI.
Jun 26 - 10:52 PM

Justin Turner went 2-for-4 and hit his 10th homer against the Nationals on Monday.

Turner has raised his OPS a full hundred points, from .668 to .768, while collecting five homers over the last week. It's hard to imagine he's still unowned in any mixed leagues now.
Jun 21 - 1:13 AM

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.
Jun 19 - 2:24 AM

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.
Jun 18 - 2:17 AM

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.
