Turner is starting Wednesday against the Diamondbacks. Turner has been dealing with a sore calf recently but hasn't missed any time and remains "playable," per manager Dave Roberts. The 28-year-old is in the midst of a 10-game hitting streak in which he's slashed .359/.444/.538 with a homer, four doubles, seven runs, seven RBI and two stolen bases.
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Tuesday that Turner has been bothered by a sore calf over the past few days, but the shortstop remains "playable," Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Turner certainly didn't appear bothered by the calf issue Tuesday, as he started both games of the team's doubleheader and went 3-for-8 with a home run, two runs and five RBI. He was replaced with a pinch runner in the sixth inning of the nightcap, but that was largely due to the fact that the Dodgers were ahead 11-2 at the time. The injury appears to be very minor, and it's unlikely that it will cause Turner to miss time going forward, though it wouldn't be a surprise to see him get a rest day at some point since he's started 13 games over the past 11 days.
Turner went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk, a run and a stolen base in a 5-4 win over Philadelphia on Sunday. Turner extended his hitting streak to seven games with a double in the first inning, and he added a walk and a stolen base that led to a run in the fourth. The shortstop hasn't shown much power this season with just one homer in 33 games, but he's rapped nine doubles and has stolen six bases on seven attempts. Turner is slashing .273/.340/.383 on the campaign.
Turner went 3-for-4 with two runs in Thursday's loss to the Phillies. The speedy shortstop was one of two Dodgers (along with Will Smith) to collect three hits in the contest. Turner scored in the sixth and eighth innings and got to third base in the ninth but was stranded there. He has seven multi-hit games so far this season, including two three-hit performances. Turner is slashing .276/.338/.379 with a home run, 21 RBI, 15 runs and five stolen bases in his first full season with Los Angeles.
Turner went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double, two runs scored, an RBI and a stolen base in Tuesday's 11-1 win over the Pirates. The shortstop did a little bit of everything as he looked to climb out of a recent mini-slump that had seen Turner bat .152 (5-for-33) over his prior nine games. On the season, the 28-year-old is slashing a disappointing .259/.317/.361 with one homer, five steals, 13 runs and 21 RBI.
