    Player Outlook

    Cast off by several clubs earlier in his career (including the Mets, if you hadn't heard), Justin Turner has blossomed into one of the game's premier hitters, posting wRC+ marks over 140 in three of the past four seasons (123 in the other). His .322 batting average ranked fifth among qualified hitters last season, and he broke the 20-homer threshold for a second straight season despite not hitting his first long ball until Apr. 29 and later missing nearly three weeks with a hamstring injury. Turner walked more than he struck out, finishing second behind only Joey Votto in BB/K, while maintaining a top-30 hard-hit rate. He boosted his flyball rate to almost 48 percent (from 40 percent), so the pop seems here to stay along with the stellar average. There is some injury risk at 33 years old -- Turner has averaged 129 games played per season over his last four -- but there is virtually no performance risk.

    • Dodgers' Justin Turner: In lineup for Game 1
      By RotoWire Staff

      Turner (undisclosed) is starting at third base and batting second for Game 1 of the World Series against the Astros on Tuesday. As expected, Turner is in the lineup for Game 1 despite being held out of team workouts over the past two days. He'll look to continue his remarkable postseason, as he's hitting .387/.500/.677 with three homers, 12 RBI and a 5:6 K:BB in 31 at-bats so far.

    • General manager Farhan Zaidi said Turner -- who was held out of Sunday's practice -- is a little "banged up" after the NLCS but expects to be ready for Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. Zaidi downplayed Turner's absence from Sunday's workout, equating it to a maintenance game the third baseman would take during the regular season to rest his chronically inflamed knees. He was seen doing agility drills in the outfield Monday, and assuming everything checks out fine, he should be good to go for Game 1. Turner has started all eight of the Dodgers' playoff games so far, hitting a ridiculous .387/.500/.677 with three homers, 12 RBI, one stolen base and a 5:6 K:BB in 31 at-bats.

    • Dodgers' Justin Turner: Back in action Tuesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Turner (finger) is in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Padres. Turner sat out the last four games after taking a pitch to the thumb last Thursday, but he is ready to get back on the field Tuesday night. He will man third and hit third against Padres starter Dinelson Lamet.

    • Dodgers' Justin Turner: Not in lineup Monday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Turner (finger) is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Padres, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. Turner was expected to rejoin the Dodgers' lineup for Monday's series opener, but it appears his injured thumb is still bothering him enough to keep him sidelined for a fourth game. He's scheduled to take batting practice Monday to test his thumb, so he'll hopefully have a clearer return date afterward. While Turner would like to get some games in before the regular season ends, he said he doesn't want to rush back before the NLDS. Logan Forsythe will continue to man third base in his absence.

    • Dodgers' Justin Turner: Will rejoin lineup Monday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Turner (thumb) took swings in the batting cage Sunday and will rejoin the starting lineup Monday against the Padres, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. Turner was held out of the lineup Sunday with his right thumb contusion, but manager Dave Roberts confirmed that the third baseman would be ready to suit back up at his first opportunity afterward. He should be deployed in fantasy lineups with confidence upon his return.
