Dodgers 3B Alex Guerrero returns to lineup


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2015) 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
(5/16/2015) 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
(5/16/2015) 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
(5/15/2015) 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. 


Don Mattingly says strong play of Alex Guerrero complicates 3B mix


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2015) Dodgers manager Don Mattingly admitted Tuesday that the strong play of Alex Guerrero has complicated his plans for third base this season, according to MLB.com. 

Guerrero has split his time this season between third and left field, hitting .326 with six homers and 14 RBI in 46 at-bats. 

Juan Uribe (.261, 1 HR, 6 RBI) and Justin Turner (.309, 5 HR, 13 RBI) have also seen significant time at third for the Dodgers this season.


3B Juan Uribe out of Dodgers' lineup again on Monday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/11/2015) For the second straight game Juan Uribe is out of the Dodgers' starting lineup, as Justin Turner gets the nod at third base Monday against the Marlins

Turner, a utility infielder, was the Dodgers' hero on Sunday after breaking a tie game with a pinch-hit homer in the eighth inning. 

Uribe is hitting .261 this season with one homer and six RBI.


Justin Turner's pinch-hit homer gives Dodgers winning run on Sunday


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/10/2015) Justin Turner's pinch-hit homer in the eighth inning Sunday broke a 5-5 tie and produced the winning run for the Dodgers against the Rockies.

"That's what you like about J.T., no matter if he's in the starting lineup or not, you're getting a quality at-bat if you send him up there,'' Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said.

The homer was Turner's fifth of the year and fourth in the month of May.

"I hit it OK," Turner said. "I didn't think it was going to be a homer but you never know, I guess, playing in Colorado."


Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick gets a breather on Friday vs. Rockies


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/8/2015) Dodgers second baseman Howie Kendrick is getting just his second day off this season, as he is not in the starting lineup for Friday's matchup with the Rockies. Kendrick, who last got a day off on April 26, has started to cool off after a hot start to the season.

Over his last 10 games, Kendrick is just 10 for 41 and has seen his season average drop from .314 to .280 over that span. 

Justin Turner is in the lineup at second base and batting third for manager Don Mattingly on Friday.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/5/2015) Justin Turner drove in four of the Dodgers' eight runs in Tuesday's win over Milwaukee. The third baseman went 3 for 4, lifting his average to .333. His three-run home run in the sixth inning put the Dodgers on top to stay. 

Turner now has six homers and 10 RBI. 


Dodgers' Justin Turner, Alex Guerrero starting Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/5/2015) Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner and left fielder Alex Guerrero are in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Brewers.

Turner is batting fifth while drawing his first start in three games. Juan Uribe will head to the bench with Turner in the lineup.

Guerrero is batting eight and manning left field for the third time since Carl Crawford was placed on the disabled list. His presence in the lineup sends Scott Van Slyke to the bench.

The Dodgers are heavy road favorites (-165) Tuesday.


Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner rips third home run of the year


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner went 2 for 3 at the plate in Los Angeles' 6-4 win over the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

Turner got things going early when he ripped a solo home run in the first inning off of Jeremy Hellickson, his third of the season. Turner also doubled and scored three runs in the contest.

Turner is now hitting .300 with six RBI in 40 at-bats this season.


Jimmy Rollins, Juan Uribe out for Dodgers


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/2/2015) For the second straight game, Justin Turner replaces Juan Uribe at third base for the Dodgers. 

Turner will make his fourth start of the year at the hot corner, batting second in the lineup. 

The Dodgers also gave a rest to shortstop Jimmy Rollins, who is out of the lineup for just the third time this year. Enrique Hernandez will start just his fourth career game at short, batting eighth in the lineup. 

"JT's been swinging good. Alex has been swinging good. Van Slyke's been swinging good. We’ve got a number of guys that are swinging good which is a good problem," manager Don Mattingly said per the Orange County Register." ... It’s a lot easier when you’re winning. I think guys are happier with what’s going on when the team’s playing well."


Dodgers' Joc Pederson, Justin Turner go deep Monday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/28/2015) Dodgers outfielder Joc Pederson and infielder Justin Turner each connected on a home run Monday to help lead the Dodgers to a 8-3 victory over the Giants.

Pederson hit a solo shot off George Kontos in the sixth inning for his third home run of the season. Pederson also doubled to finish the game 2 for 3 with two RBI.

"He made a great play in the first," manager Don Mattingly said of Pederson after the game, per MLB.com. "Then the double, the home run, even the walk late [in the eighth inning]. It's tough for a young player to take a 3-2 pitch sometimes. That walk gets J.T. [Justin Turner] up there at a good time."

Meanwhile, Turner broke the game open in the eighth inning when he connected on a three-run home run off Yusmeiro Petit. Turner was pinch hitting when he belted the home run. It was his first of the season.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Dodgers' Puig, Crawford, Grandal, Uribe out of lineup Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig, left fielder Carl Crawford, catcher Yasmani Grandal and third baseman Juan Uribe are not in the starting lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Rockies.

Puig was able to return from a tight hamstring Saturday and go 2 for 3 with a walk, but manager Don Mattingly said that the outfielder had a noticeable limp while playing nine innings. Crawford is out of the lineup for the second straight day due to illness. Uribe and Grandal are sitting for the first time in four games.

With several starters sidelined, Justin Turner will bat second and play third base, Andre Ethier will bat fifth and start in right field, Scott Van Slyke will start in left field and bat sixth and A.J. Ellis will start behind the plate and bat eighth against Rockies right-hander Eddie Butler.

Despite the multiple absences, the Dodgers are heavy favorites (-165) Sunday.

Dodgers' Mattingly: Turner has 'put a lot of time in and it shows'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2015) Dodgers infielder Justin Turner earned a nonroster invitation to the team's camp last year and ended up leading the team in batting average, and he's been working on his body like a fiend over the winter, MLB.com reports.

"Going into last year, we felt if he played every day, he'd get in trouble, and we found that out, but this year maybe he can handle more," manager Don Mattingly said Friday. "He's really been diligent about his work, been at Dodger Stadium almost daily. He's put a lot of time in and it shows."

Turner credited strength-and-conditioning coach Brandon McDaniel for his workout success.

"Brandon did everything. He's been a one-man wrecking crew," said Turner. "He and his family deserve the credit. I've been able to establish a routine and train consistently. Before I signed a year ago, I was on my own, going to 24 Hour Fitness, had to coordinate everything myself."

Turner added that he lost 18 pounds this winter through a healthier diet. Mattingly said that he intends to use the infielder at the corner-infield positions and also potentially up the middle.
