      Nationals' Trea Turner: Move to IL official

      The Washington Nationals placed Trea Turner (finger) on the 10-day injured list Wednesday.Infielder Adrian Sanchez was recalled from Triple-A Fresno in a corresponding move, but Wilmer Difo is expected to serve as the Nationals' everyday shortstop while Turner is out indefinitely with a broken right index finger. A firm timeline for Turner's return may not be established until he's re-evaluated by doctors, but general manager Mike Rizzo noted Wednesday that the fact that Turner suffered a clean break of the finger on his throwing hand may necessitate a longer recovery, per Brittany Ghiroli of The Athletic. Rizzo suggested that Turner would likely need more time to heal than the three weeks teammate Matt Adams required after breaking a finger in 2018.

      Nationals' Trea Turner: Serving as No. 2 hitter

      Manager Dave Martinez said Saturday that Trea Turner will primarily bat second for the Washington Nationals this season, Brittany Ghiroli of The Athletic reports.Turner started 141 games between the top-two spots in the lineup in 2018 and this season figures to be more of the same. Adam Eaton will serve as the leadoff hitter, assuming he is able to remain healthy. Turner figures to be a major threat on the bases once again -- he has 89 steals in 260 games over the last two years -- but those numbers could be muffled slightly if he remains in the two-hole all season.

      Nationals' Trea Turner: Swats first spring homer

      Trea Turner went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Braves.He took Kevin Gausman deep in the first inning for his first homer of the spring. Turner is hitting just .231 (6-for-26) through 10 games, but his 4:5 BB:K and 2-for-2 success rate on the basepaths indicates there's no cause for concern. The shortstop will open the season hitting near the top of a potent Nats order, and should be considered among the favorites to lead MLB in steals in 2019.
