Turner (hamstring) is starting Wednesday's game against the Athletics, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports. Turner has been limited by a left hamstring injury recently, and he was scratched from Tuesday's lineup as a result. However, he'll return to the starting lineup Wednesday, batting third and playing third base.
Turner (hamstring) hopes to return to the lineup Wednesday against Oakland, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. Manager Dave Roberts said the team will see how Turner's hamstring responds Wednesday before making a decision on the lineup. He missed 14 games with a strained left hamstring and was then scratched Tuesday with a cramp in the same hamstring. While making Turner the full-time designated hitter could be one route to go during this final week, Roberts said the goal is for him to be able to play the field, at least on a part-time basis.
Turner was scratched from Tuesday's lineup against the A's with left hamstring discomfort, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports. Turner returned last week from the left hamstring strain and appears to have aggravated the injury. The 35-year-old served as the designated hitter in all of his five starts since being activated and was scheduled to play third base Tuesday before the late scratch. The veteran infielder should be considered day-to-day until the team specifies the severity of the aggravation.
Turner was scratched from Tuesday's lineup against the A's, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports. The 35-year-old was scheduled to play the field at third base for the first time since coming off the injured list last week, but he's been removed from the lineup a couple hours before first pitch. The team has yet to provide an official reason, but the obvious worry is that Turner aggravated the hamstring strain he just returned from. Edwin Rios takes over at the hot corner Tuesday for the Dodgers.
