Turner went 2-for-4 with an RBI double in Tuesday's 7-2 loss to the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Turner was one of the few Los Angeles hitters able to muster any offense against Jose Quintana, as his third-inning two-bagger was one of the just two extra-base hits on the night for the Dodgers. Tuesday's performance aside, Turner's power has been conspicuously absent through the Dodgers' first 25 games, as he has zero homers and only three doubles to his name. Turner is at least sporting a strong batting average and on-base percentage, and a career-best 50.8 percent hard-hit rate offers hope that his slugging percentage could soon be on the upswing, too.

Turner (ankle, hamstring) is starting at third base and hitting third Thursday against the Brewers, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Turner missed Tuesday's game due to an ankle bruise and hamstring tightness, but he was able to make a pinch-hit appearance Wednesday and reported no issues, clearing the way for him to rejoin the starting lineup. The veteran third baseman, who is slashing .297/.382/.328 with eight RBI through 18 games this season, will face right-hander Zach Davies in his first game back.

Turner (ankle, hamstring) made a pinch-hit appearance in the Dodgers' 3-2 win over the Reds on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

The third baseman has been held out of the starting lineup for the last two games after fouling a ball of his ankle and feeling hamstring tightness, but he came off the bench for Joc Pederson in the eighth inning of this contest. This is a good sign Turner's injuries are minor and he should be able to rejoin the starting lineup in short order.

Turner (hamstring, ankle) is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Reds, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Turner missed Tuesday's game due to both an ankle bruise and hamstring tightness. He was expected to return Wednesday but evidently needs at least one more day. Max Muncy starts at third base in his absence.

Turner's omission from Tuesday's lineup is due to an ankle knock and hamstring tightness, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Turner fouled a pitch off his left ankle in batting practice and also felt tightness in his left hamstring, per Gurnick, which is why he'll sit for Tuesday's contest against the Reds. He should be considered day-to-day until more information becomes available.

Turner is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Milwaukee.

EDGE Analysis

Turner started the past five games at third base and went 5-for-19 with one double and one RBI, but will take a seat for the series finale. Max Muncy will start at third base and bat fifth while Cody Bellinger steps in at first base.

Turner is back in the lineup, hitting second and playing third base for Tuesday's contest against the Cardinals, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Turner received a maintenance day on Monday, but he'll slide back into the second spot in the order and man the hot corner on Tuesday. The 34-year-old is hitting .293 with a .375 on-base percentage through 41 at-bats, although he is still looking to find his power stroke as he's slugging just .317 and is still looking for his first long ball.

Turner is not in the lineup Monday against the Cardinals, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Turner has started the last six games for the Dodgers, going 8-for-25 with a pair of RBI and three runs scored in those contests. He'll take a seat for Monday's series opener, allowing Alex Verdugo to pick up a start in the outfield while Cody Bellinger and Max Muncy man first and third base, respectively.

Turner is back in the lineup for Monday's tilt against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Turner received a maintenance day Sunday, but he's back in action, hitting second for the opener of the Dodgers' series against the Giants. The 34-year-old veteran went 3-for-5 with five RBI in his last start, so he'll look to keep the momentum going against San Francisco lefty Drew Pomeranz.
