  • Dodgers' Justin Turner: Racks up three hits Thursday

    Turner went 3-for-5 with two doubles and a run in a 10-5 win against the Reds on Thursday.

    Los Angeles pummeled Cincinnati pitching for 16 hits in the contest, and Turner was one of four Dodgers to tally three base knocks. Two of his hits went for doubles, giving him four two-baggers over his past five games. Though he's hit only four homers this season, Turner is up to 20 doubles, putting him on pace to easily surpass his single-season career-high mark in the category.

  • Dodgers' Justin Turner: Playing through hamstring issue

    Turner had his hamstring tighten up Saturday, which is why he is starting at designated hitter Sunday against the Mets, Sarah Wexler of MLB.com reports.

    The issue is apparently very minor, and Turner is no stranger to getting starts at designated hitter anyway (21 appearances so far this season). Eddy Alvarez is starting at third base and hitting eighth Sunday.

  • Dodgers' Justin Turner: Resting Sunday

    Turner is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

    Turner will take a seat after he went 7-for-21 with four doubles, a walk and four runs while starting in each of the Dodgers' last five games. Edwin Rios spells Turner at third base in the series finale.

  • Dodgers' Justin Turner: Racks up four hits Saturday

    Turner went 4-for-4 with two doubles in Saturday's 3-2 victory versus the Diamondbacks.

    Turner had been cold coming into the contest, going 3-for-22 over his previous five games. The veteran turned things around with his second four-hit performance of the campaign, which included a pair of doubles. Turner raised his average 20 points to .224 with the effort, though his .666 OPS remains disappointing in comparison to his career body of work.

  • Dodgers' Justin Turner: Expected to log more time at DH

    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts stated recently that Turner will spend more time as designated hitter while Max Muncy sees more work at third base moving forward, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Though Turner has been playing better of late, he hasn't hit to his usual standards so far this season, slashing just .207/.265/.364 with four homers through 140 at-bats. Muncy has struggled even more, slashing just .157/.327/.276 with three homers in 154 plate appearances. Roberts suggested that the change is meant to help both veterans settle into a consistent role, likely in hopes that such a move will jumpstart their bats. "I think getting each of those guys more accustomed to a certain role, I think ultimately could be beneficial," Roberts stated.

    Turner isn't starting Monday against the Nationals.

  • Dodgers' Justin Turner: Homers in Game 1, sitting Game 2

    Turner is out of the lineup for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader versus the Diamondbacks, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

  • Dodgers' Justin Turner: Slugs clutch homer

    Turner went 2-for-5 with a home run, a double and four RBI in Friday's loss to the Phillies.

    Turner contributed to a five-run third inning for the Dodgers by doubling in a pair of runs, then sent the game into extra innings with a two-run shot to left field in the bottom of the ninth. The veteran third baseman has gotten off to a slow start this season, slashing .211/.264/.349 with only two long balls through 121 plate appearances. However, he has picked things up of late, going 7-for-14 with five doubles and 10 RBI over his past four contests.

  • Dodgers' Justin Turner: Not starting Thursday

    Turner isn't starting Thursday against the Phillies.

    Turner has been held hitless in four of the last five games, and he's gone 4-for-16 with three doubles, five RBI, four runs and four walks during that time. Max Muncy will start at third base while Edwin Rios serves as the designated hitter.

  • Dodgers' Justin Turner: Busts out with four-hit effort

    Turner went 4-for-5 with three doubles, two runs scored and four RBI in Tuesday's 11-1 win over the Pirates.

    The veteran third baseman hadn't had a multi-hit performance since April 24 and had managed only four hits in his prior 11 games combined; however, Turner led the charge on a night in which the Dodgers banged out eight doubles in total, tying the club record for the Los Angeles chapter of the franchise's history. Turner's .552 OPS is still well below expectations, but Tuesday's effort could be a sign he's ready to break out.

  • Dodgers' Justin Turner: Ends homer drought

    Turner went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a 5-1 victory over Detroit on Friday.

    Turner opened the scoring with a two-run shot off Detroit starter Tyler Alexander, his first long ball of the season. He's been a notoriously slow starter throughout his career and has lived up to that reputation with a meager .209/.257/.299 line through 18 games this month. Turner should turn things around as he's done in seasons past, and he still has manager Dave Roberts' trust -- Turner batted fourth Friday.

  • Dodgers' Justin Turner: Getting breather Wednesday

    Turner is not in the lineup for Wednesday's series finale versus the Diamondbacks, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

    For the first time this season, Turner will not be in the starting lineup. The 37-year-old has struggled a little to open 2022, producing a .206/.257/.254 slash with no homers and three extra-base hits in 63 at-bats. Max Muncy will get the start at third base while Edwin Rios enters the lineup and will bat seventh as the designated hitter.

  • Dodgers' Justin Turner: Drives in run, scores Tuesday

    Turner went 1-for-4 with a walk, a run and an RBI in Tuesday's 7-2 win over the Twins.

    The RBI was the first of the season for Turner, who has hit fourth or fifth in each of the Dodgers' four games to date. With two of the three stars ahead of him in the order -- Mookie Betts and Trea Turner -- all sitting on on-base averages under .250, Turner hasn't had many run-producing opportunities, but the Dodgers offense is too talented to stay down for long. The seven runs Tuesday were the team's most of the season, after Los Angeles produced a combined 11 runs over its three-game series in Colorado last weekend.
