Turner is in the lineup for Monday's tilt with the Reds.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Turner will man the hot corner and bat second in the order. He was not in the lineup Sunday after starting the previous five games. Turner did make a pinch-hit appearance, and made the best of it by mashing a solo home run. He will look to stay hot Monday.

Turner will not play in Sunday's series finale against the Padres.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Turner appears to simply be receiving a rest day after starting the last five contests. A rather unimpressive .227/.319/.326 batting line may have played a factor as well, with Howie Kendrick slotting in at third base in his place and the hot-hitting Trayce Thompson once again starting in left field. Still, Turner could rejoin the lineup as soon as Monday when the Dodgers host the Reds.

Turner went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer and a walk Friday at the Padres.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Turner's second homer gave the Dodgers a one-run lead in the eighth inning of a game they'd go on to lose. He's only collected four hits in his last 28 at-bats, and he has a disappointing .217/.314/.350 slash line.

Turner is not in the lineup for Monday's series opener against the Angels.

Competitive Edge Analysis

This seems like a typical day off for Turner, although he is scuffling to the tune of a .182 batting average over his past seven games. Howie Kendrick will slide over to third base to fill in for him, while Carl Crawford enters the lineup in left field.

Turner is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Mets.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Turner has yet to provide much power or the high batting average that he has been known for in recent seasons, although his defense has still been quite good at the hot corner. Howie Kendrick gets the start at third base and will bat third Wednesday against righty Noah Syndergaard.

Turner went 1-for-4 with a solo homer and two runs scored in Saturday's 6-2 victory over the Blue Jays.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The Dodgers' third baseman finally connected on a long ball this season, and extended his current hitting streak to four games in the process. Turner's current line of .260/.339/.375 is serviceable, but he's only contributed six RBI after managing a career-high 60 in 2015. The veteran still remains a viable option, particularly versus right-handers, as he's managed a .348 wOBA and 22 career homers against them.

Manager Dave Roberts expects Turner (toe) to play Monday, MLB.com's Ken Gurnick reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Turner was held out of Sunday's lineup for the second straight game as a precaution, but the Dodgers anticipate his bruised big toe having enough time to heal before Monday. It sounds like all signs are pointing to a return, but be sure to check back to confirm prior to Monday's lineup lock.
