Dodgers' Justin Turner becoming primary option at third base
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/25/15) Dodgers infielder Justin Turner hasn't been given the title just yet, but it's becoming apparent he is the team's primary third baseman over Alex Guerrero and Juan Uribe, according to the L.A. Times.
Turner has started 13 of 20 games this month for Los Angeles, but has not started more than three consecutive games all year.
"We try to be three [games] on, one off and two on and one off," manager Don Mattingly said. "Trying basically to not let him go too far at one time."
Mattingly is trying to juggle the three players in his infield as much as possible, keeping them all around equal playing time.
"It's tough with Alex and Justin right now," Mattingly said. "We're trying to put the best lineup out there. I do think as this continues on, there's going to be a point where Juan's going to be a valuable part. But right now, those two guys have been swinging the bat real well and playing solid defense."

|(5/24/15) Dodgers third baseman Alex Guerrero has returned to the lineup after taking Saturday's game against the Padres off.
Guerrero will hit sixth after Justin Turner filled in his spot a day ago.
Outfielder Enrique Hernandez is batting seventh and catcher Austin Barnes is batting eighth.
Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez out of starting lineup on Saturday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/16/15) Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's matchup against the Rockies. This will be the third time this season that Gonzalez is starting a game on the bench.
Gonzalez has continued to hit well this season, and he's hitting at a nice .290 clip with six doubles and 10 RBI over his last eight games.
Justin Turner will hit cleanup for the first time this year, while filling it at first base.
Dodgers 3B Justin Turner plates two runs in win over Rockies
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/16/15) Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner drove in two runs on Friday, leading his team to a 6-4 victory over the Rockies.
Turner singled in the opening frame and ripped a two-run double off Colorado starter Eddie Butler in the second inning. He finished 2 for 3 with a walk, a run scored and two RBI. He is hitting .302 on the year, with five homers, 15 RBI and a .380 on-base percentage in 28 games played.
With surplus of third basemen, Dodgers could look to trade Uribe
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/15/15) Would the Dodgers consider shopping third baseman Juan Uribe? It may not be out of the question, once new Cuban-import Hector Olivera passes his upcoming physical and finalizes his contract. With Olivera on board, the Dodgers will have a surplus of quality third basemen, with the aformentioned Olivera and Uribe, along with Justin Turner and Alex Guerrero.
As CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman notes, Guerrero can opt-out of his current contract at the end of the season if he is dealt, making a deal unlikely. The Dodgers would like to hang on to Turner thanks to his versatility. So of the quartet, Urbie seems the likliest to be dealt (that's if the Dodgers decide to make any deals).
Uribe, who is batting .247 in a part-time role in 2015, is scheduled to be a free agent after the season, so any team looking for a short-term piece at third base could look to the Dodgers for a possible fit.
