Turner went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Mets. He smacked the second pitch he saw from Rick Porcello -- an 89 mph fastball at the top of the strike zone -- the other way down the right-field line for a 356-foot homer. Turner has gone yard on consecutive nights, giving him three home runs on the year, but his .255/.288/.455 slash line -- as well as his 0-for-3 performance on steal attempts -- is still well below expectations.
Turner went 3-for-5 with a home run, two runs scored and three RBI in Monday's 16-4 rout of the Mets. He took Steven Matz deep in the third inning, one of four homers the Nats launched on the night, for his second long ball of the year. Turner had gone just 1-for-20 over his prior five games, but the shortstop -- and nearly the entire Washington lineup -- woke up in a big way as the team began a 10-day road trip.
Turner went 2-for-3 with a walk, two doubles, a run scored and a caught stealing in Tuesday's loss to the Blue Jays. After a couple of shaky games to start the season, Turner flipped the switch and has now reeled off three straight two-hit efforts. He's still looking for his first stolen base of the campaign, but his .333/.400/.611 slash line through 20 plate appearances has given him plenty of fantasy value without the pilfers.
Turner went 2-for-4 with a solo home run Sunday against the Yankees. Turner entered the game 0-for-7 on the season but came through with a nice day at the dish. The highlight came in the third inning, when he took Jonathan Loaisiga deep for his first home run of the campaign. He'll look build on this multi-hit performance as the Nationals square off against the Blue Jays in their second series of the season.
Turner went 0-for-5 with a strikeout and committed two errors in Saturday's win over the Yankees. The Nats' leadoff hitter has stumbled out of the gate, as he went 0-for-2 in Thursday's opener as well. It's not surprising that some players are a little further behind the curve than others given the nature of this season, but Turner should find a groove eventually. Whether that's quickly enough to satisfy those with fantasy shares in him during an abbreviated 60-game schedule is another question.
