Turner got a rare start at third base Sunday against the Rockies and went 4-for-5 with an RBI and three doubles.

Turner had an excellent 2014 campaign in a reserve role. He missed out on a chance to start a couple of games at the beginning of the week due to a finger injury, but it's pretty apparent that he's healthy now.

Turner (finger) was able to field grounders Monday, Mark Saxon of ESPN Los Angeles reports.

The Dodgers continue to regard Turner as day-to-day, but it doesn't sound likely that he'll be available off the bench for Monday's series opener against the Mariners. With Juan Uribe (hamstring) also out of the lineup, the Dodgers will turn to Alex Guerrero at third base.

Turner (finger) is unsure if he is available for Sunday.

Turner left Saturday's game after being spiked in the hand. Juan Uribe replaced him, and then left with a tight hamstring. Alex Guerrero is making the start Sunday. Turner could be available to return within the next few days.

Turner was diagnosed with left index finger stiffness and X-rays were negative.

He left Saturday's game after getting spiked on his left hand. Turner was replaced by Juan Uribe who then left almost immediately with a tight hamstring. With Turner and Uribe both ailing, Alex Guerrero (the Dodgers' third deployment at the hot corner Saturday) could be in line for a start or two, which is great for fantasy because he has the most fantasy upside of the trio, he just happens to be a shoddy defender. Turner is listed as day-to-day.

Turner left Saturday's game in the third inning after getting spiked in the hand, SB Nation's Eric Stephen reports.

He was making his first start of the year, and didn't make it halfway into Saturday's game before leaving with an injury. Juan Uribe, who was supposed to have the night off went in to replace him. Consider Turner day-to-day for now.

Turner is having a strong spring, batting .375/.400/.542 in 24 at-bats. He's still in line to be a super utility player again in 2015.

Turner won't hit .340 again this year, but he should be able to find his way to another 250 or so at-bats, making him a worthy reserve pick in NL-only formats.
