  • Justin Turner went 2-for-3 with a run scored and a walk in a victory over the Rockies on Monday.
    Advice: This is the third-straight multi-hit game for Turner, and the fifth in his last 10 games. On August 3, Turner owned a .257 average and .769 OPS. Those numbers are now .324 and .955. He owns a .365/.469/.615 line in September after slashing .402/.491/.722 in August. All of this to say that there haven't been many better offensive players as of late, and there's no reason to think he's going to slow down.
  • Justin Turner went 2-for-4 with a double as the Dodgers were shut out by the Cardinals on Sunday.
    Advice: Turner tallied two of his team's four total hits in the contest, and had the only one of the extra-base variety. He has done nothing but hit when he has been in the lineup this season, slashing .321/.416/.533 with 13 homers and 47 RBI in 90 games.
  • X-rays on Justin Turner's left arm/wrist were negative.
    Advice: Turner was hit on the arm by Cards starter John Gant in Saturday's win but he stayed in the game for a few more innings, exiting only after the contest was out of hand. That was an indication that the HBP wasn't much to worry about, and the X-rays confirm that. It's a rare bit of good news for Turner, who's struggled with injuries this year.
