Turner will be the team's primary third baseman going forward, starting around five days a week according to manager Don Mattingly, Dodgers Nation reports.

"We try to be three on, one off and two on and one off. Trying basically to not let him go too far at one time," Mattingly said. Alex Guerrero will be second on the depth chart, with Uribe third until he's trade. Hector Olivera looms however, as he's expected to be ready within a month.

Turner started at third base for the fifth straight game on Sunday and went 1-for-2 with two walks against the Rockies.

The 30-year-old has all but taken over for Juan Uribe at third base for the Dodgers and could put up some decent counting stats as an everyday player in such a potent lineup, as he already has 5 home runs and 16 RBI in just 68 at-bats on the season.

Turner launched a pinch-hit, two-run home run versus the Rockies on Sunday.

The 30-year-old continues to rake in his part-time role, and now owns a 1.078 OPS on the season. Turner's chances of seeing consistent at-bats this season likely hinge on trade or injury, given the depth in the Dodgers infield.

Turner is starting at third base an hitting fifth Wednesday against the Brewers.

Turner is in a groove at the plate right now with three home runs in his last 12 at-bats, so it might be worth riding the hot hand in daily leagues. Once he cools down Juan Uribe should start getting back a bigger share of the workload at third base.
