Turner is not in the lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Reds, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Turner has started the last 10 games for the Nationals -- hitting .298/.340/.511 with five extra-base hits and eight stolen bases -- but will take a seat against Reds' starter Luis Castillo. Wilmer Difo will start at shortstop and bat ninth for the Nationals on Sunday.

Turner went 2-for-4 with a home run, two stolen bases, two runs scored and four RBI in the 10-4 win over the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Turner did it all at the plate Thursday, bringing his 2018 totals to 14 long balls and 30 stolen bases. He's now set a new career-high in home runs and has hit the 30 stolen base mark for the third straight season. The 25-year-old infielder has established himself as an elite fantasy performer and should continue building on his strong numbers.

Turner went 1-for-4 with a double, three runs scored and two stolen bases in Wednesday's win over the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

The off-field furor over his old tweets hasn't impacted Turner's play at all, as the shortstop has gone 12-for-30 (.400) over his last six games with two doubles, a triple, a homer, three RBI, six steals and 10 runs. He now leads the majors with 28 stolen bases, and he'll need to continue surging if the Nats are going to have any chance of making a late push for a playoff spot.

Turner went 2-for-5 with two stolen bases Saturday against the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

Turner reached base on a bunt single in the first inning and then stole both second and third base. His activity on the basepaths is a welcomed sight as these were his first stolen bases since June 29, and they break a stretch of five consecutive unsuccessful attempts. He now ranks second in the National League with 24 stolen bases.

Turner went 3-for-6 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored Thursday against the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

Turner made waves for the wrong reasons earlier in the week after being benched for not running out a bunt attempt. However, he was dialed in Thursday, launching his 13th home run of the season and recording his first multi-hit game since July 6. Despite the strong performance, it is still concerning that Turner has not successfully stolen a base since June 29 and has been caught on each of his last five attempts.

Turner will bat seventh and start at shortstop Wednesday against the Brewers, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Turner was left out of Tuesday's starting lineup after failing to run to first base following a bunt attempt during Monday's game. He did enter the game as a pinch runner, but got caught stealing after breaking for second base a little too early. Across 100 games this year, he's hitting .263/.338/.401 with 12 home runs, 40 RBI and 22 stolen bases.

Turner is benched for Tuesday's game against the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Turner will be forced to sit out after refusing to run to first base following a failed bunt attempt Monday. There hasn't been any suggestions that Turner will be held out for more than one game, so expect him back in the lineup Wednesday.

Turner went 1-for-5 with two RBI during Sunday's 6-1 victory over the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Turner extended the lead to five in the seventh inning after plating a pair on a single to left. The 25-year-old shortstop went 3-for-15 during Philadelphia's four-game series against the Mets, and he'll enter the All-Star break batting .267 with 11 home runs and 39 RBI over 96 games.

Turner is not in the lineup against the Mets on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Dave Martinez elected to load up the Nationals lineup with left-handed hitters against Noah Syndergaard, moving Turner to the bench in favor of Wilmer Difo. Across hit last five games, Turner has gone just 1-for-21 with 10 strikeouts, so this will also serve as a little breather to clear his head.

Turner went 3-for-5 with two home runs and eight RBI in Thursday's thrilling comeback victory over the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

The Nationals' leadoff hitter was the hero Thursday as he led the charge in helping his team overcome a nine-run deficit. Turner's sixth-inning grand slam gave the Nationals their first lead of the game and he added a two-run single later in the game for good measure. According to Mark Zuckerman of MASN, Turner is just the sixth leadoff hitter in MLB history to record eight RBI in a game.
