Turner went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and a pair of runs scored Wednesday in the Dodgers' win over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Turner has hit for tremendous power of late, with 11 home runs in his last 30 games. Turner's power may be the result of a change in approach at the plate, however, as he's not taken a walk since July 27th. He entered Wednesday slugging .643 in August, but with an OBP of just .310.

Turner (hand) isn't expected to need a stint on the DL, J.P. Hoornstra of the Southern California News Group reports.

EDGE Analysis

After being hit by a pitch Friday, there was a level of uncertainty regarding how the club would proceed with Turner's injury. However, it looks like he'll simply need a bit of time to recover. Although the team didn't indicate when he'd be back in action, a return by the end of next week wouldn't be surprising.

Turner (hand) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Pirates, J.P Hoornstra of the Southern California News Group reports.

EDGE Analysis

For the second day in a row, the Dodgers will be without their power-hitting third baseman. There hasn't been any indication that Turner will need a stint on the DL, so he should still be considered day-to-day. Rob Segedin will start at the hot corner and be batting eighth Sunday.

Turner is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

This appears to be just a routine day off for Turner, who has played a full contest in every game since July 5. He is not among the elite third basemen in the game, but he is in that next group, as his 21 homers are tied with Kyle Seager for eighth among third basemen and his .848 OPS ranks ninth among regulars at the position. Rob Segedin will get a rare start at the hot corner Wednesday, batting eighth.

Turner went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer in Tuesday's 9-3 win over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Turner followed the examples of Howie Kendrick and Yasmani Grandal, as each of the three managed to hit a two-run homer off starter Vince Velasquez. The third baseman established a new career high with his 56th run of the season, and added to career highs in homers and RBI. A late bloomer, Turner has become a key piece for a contending Dodgers team over the past two seasons after being bandied about the league for years.

Turner (2-for-3) connected for two home runs off Nationals' ace Stephen Strasburg en route to a five RBI performance Thursday afternoon.

EDGE Analysis

Just an hour into the afternoon, the Dodgers' hottest hitter already had his fourth career multi-homer game and his first game with five RBI since May 15, 2011. Over the previous two seasons, Turner was one of the Dodgers' best hitters and an anchor in the middle of their lineup. But the third baseman stumbled to start the 2016 season, and on June 8, he was hitting only .220. Turner insists nothing in his swing has changed since then, but his numbers certainly have. Since that date, he has lifted his average 47 points by hitting .333 with 13 home runs.
