Turner has been hitting off a tee in his backyard and playing catch at a local park, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
With MLB stadiums and facilities mostly shut down, Turner -- like most other players -- has had to rely on home equipment and local spaces to stay in shape. If the 2020 season takes place, the veteran will once again fill an everyday role as the Dodgers' starting third baseman.
Turner (personal) will bat third and play third base Wednesday against the Brewers.
Turner had been away from the team for a few days to watch his wife run in the Los Angeles Marathon. WIth over two weeks left until Opening Day, his preparation for the upcoming season shouldn't be significantly impacted.

Turner had X-rays come back negative after being hit by a pitch on his left hand during Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Giants, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Turner wasn't supposed to be included in Sunday's lineup and will start Monday's Cactus League game against the Reds, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.
Turner was slated to start at third base and bat second Sunday before the team released an updated lineup, but manager Dave Roberts said his initial inclusion was a mistake and that it's just a scheduled off day.

Turner (back) will not return Sunday against the Giants, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Matt Beaty starts at third base in his absence.

According to skipper Dave Roberts, Turner's back is improving, and the team is hopeful to get him some at-bats before the regular season comes to a close. His availability for the rest of the weekend should become more clear closer to first pitch.

Turner is not in Thursday's lineup due to back tightness, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Turner's back apparently tightened up during batting practice Wednesday, which helps explain his absence from the lineup over the past two games. According to Gurnick, manager Dave Roberts said Turner likely would have played if it were the playoffs, so it sounds like the Dodgers are playing it safe with four games left in the season. Jedd Gyorko is starting at third base in Thursday's series finale in place of Turner, who should be considered day-to-day.
Turner is not in the lineup Thursday against the Padres, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

Turner (ankle) went 0-for-2 in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Rockies.
Turner was initially expected to get three at-bats Saturday, but the Dodgers shuffled their personnel to start the fourth inning and Turner's night was done.

Turner (ankle) is back in the lineup Saturday against the Rockies.
This is great news, but the reins aren't completely off; manager Dave Roberts said Turner will be limited to three at-bats in his first start since Sept. 7.

Turner (ankle) will be limited to three at-bats in his return to the lineup Saturday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.
Manager Dave Roberts likened Turner's return to a spring training game in which he is allotted a pre-determined number of at-bats before departing, regardless of game flow. The plan is likely to extend through Sunday, as Turner is expected to start both weekend games as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks. Turner made his first plate appearance in nearly two weeks Friday, drawing a walk as a pinch hitter in the seventh inning.
