Turner went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Rangers. Turner has looked strong in his first two games back from his brief layoff, adding a home run to the single and double he produced in Tuesday's contest. The extra-base hits are a great sign for his fantasy owners, as power is usually the last thing to return for a batter following a serious wrist injury.
Turner (wrist) went 2-for-5 with a double and a run scored in Tuesday's blowout win over the Rangers. Turner made his second return from a wrist injury he sustained in spring training after feeling discomfort following his first comeback attempt in May. The slugging third baseman has some work to do after slashing a meager .243/.325/.343 in 19 games prior to his brief layoff, but the fact that he roped an extra-base hit is a promising sign that his wrist may finally be back at full strength.
Turner (wrist) is starting at third base and hitting third Tuesday against the Rangers, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports. As expected, Turner has been cleared to rejoin the starting lineup after missing the past four games with lingering wrist soreness. The veteran, who is hitting .243/.325/.342 through 20 games this season, will look to get things going at the plate now that he's healthy. He'll face veteran Bartolo Colon in his first game back.
Turner (wrist) is not in the lineup Sunday against the Braves, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. After missing the past three games with a wrist injury, manager Dave Roberts stated Saturday that the third baseman would be back in the starting lineup Sunday. The skipper has apparently changed his mind and decided to withhold Turner from the lineup in the series finale. Turner will, however, be available to pinch hit and is expected to start Tuesday against the Rangers, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.
Turner (wrist) will return to the Dodgers' lineup for Sunday's game against the Braves, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. Turner is out of the lineup Saturday for the third straight game, but will apparently be good to go for Sunday's contest. It remains unclear if the 33-year-old is available off the bench Saturday, but the lingering wrist issue won't require a trip to the disabled list at this point.
