  • 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.

  • 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 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.

  • Dodgers' Justin Turner: Healed up from hamstring injury

    Turner (hamstring) was spotted taking live at-bats against teammate Clayton Kershaw on Monday during the Dodgers' team workout, Juan Toribio of reports.

    Turner and Mookie Betts were among the lineup regulars who took hacks against Kershaw in the ace's first live batting practice throwing session of 2022, indicating that all three players are healthy again after tending to injuries during last year's playoff run. Los Angeles could still look to add another major piece to an already prolific offense before Opening Day, but Turner's status as an everyday player won't be in question regardless of what moves the Dodgers might make. After inking a two-year, $34 million contract last February, he made good on the first season of the deal by hitting .278 with 27 home runs, 87 RBI and 87 runs over 151 games.

  • Dodgers' Justin Turner: Rehabbing hamstring

    Turner (hamstring) has been rehabbing at Dodger Stadium three days a week, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

    He started his offseason program earlier than usual to rehab his left hamstring, which put an end to his playoffs midway through the NLCS. Turner shouldn't be at risk of missing spring training.

  • Dodgers' Justin Turner: Exits with hamstring issue

    Turner was removed from Wednesday's Game 4 of the NLCS against Atlanta due to a left hamstring injury, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Turner suffered the injury during the bottom of the seventh inning when attempting to beat out a double play. The 36-year-old has struggled throughout the playoffs and went 1-for-3 with a run before leaving Game 4. The Dodgers will need to make a decision whether to keep Turner on the NLCS roster; removing him would prevent him from playing in the World Series should Los Angeles come back from its 3-1 deficit and advance.
