Justin Turner went 2-for-4 in Sunday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

Turner was dealing with a minor quad injury early in the week, but he has played in each of the last four games and looks to be past that health concern. With his two hits on Sunday, the veteran third baseman is now hitting a sharp .372/.449/.535 with five RBI and five runs scored over the course of his first 43 at-bats. That triple-slash is a strong one, though Turner is still searching for his first home run of the young campaign. He swatted 27 of them a year ago.

Justin Turner (quad) is back in the Dodgers' starting lineup Thursday afternoon against the Cubs.

Apr 13 - 11:36 AM

Justin Turner (quad) grounded out as a pinch-hitter on Wednesday night against the Cubs.

Justin Turner is out of the Dodgers' lineup again on Wednesday due to quad discomfort.

Apr 12 - 4:04 PM

Justin Turner is day-to-day after coming out of Monday's game with quadriceps discomfort.

The Dodgers have Tuesday off, so maybe Turner will be ready to go when they resume play Wednesday. If not, they'll probably shift Logan Forsythe to third and use Chase Utley at second.
Apr 11 - 2:04 AM

Justin Turner went 2-for-4 with a two-run double in Sunday's win over the Rockies.

The Dodgers' offense, as it did for the majority of the season, struggled against a left-handed starter in this one, generating just one run on five total hits. Turner was the only hitter in the lineup to record multiple hits. He's off to a sizzling start, slashing .471/.471/.706, though he has just one RBI thus far.

Apr 1 - 2:16 AM

Justin Turner finished 3-for-3 with a solo home run in the Dodgers' exhibition loss to the Brewers on Tuesday.

Mar 21 - 7:35 PM

Justin Turner went 1-for-3 with an RBI double in Monday’s Cactus League game against the Angels.
