Dodgers GM: Chase Utley could cut into time for 3B Justin Turner


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2015) Dodgers general manager Farhan Zaidi has stated that newly acquired Chase Utley could be used at third base when injured second baseman Howie Kendrick returns in early September, per MLB.com.

That would mean less playing time for current third baseman Justin Turner, who has had a surprisingly strong season. Turner owns a fine .312/.373/.543 slash line on the year, but is hitless in his last 12 at-bats.


Dodgers activate 3B Justin Turner, send down 2B Jose Peraza


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2015) The Dodgers have activated third baseman Justin Turner off the disabled list and demoted second baseman Jose Peraza to Triple-A Oklahoma City, per truebluela.com.

Turner, who has been sidelined with a staph infection in the right thigh, returns in a breakthrough season. He owns a fine slash line of .323/.387/.563 with 44 RBI in 254 at-bats.

Don Mattingly has stated that Turner should start Friday against Cincinnati. He could play some at second base with Howie Kendrick on the DL.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Dodgers 3B Justin Turner could be activated soon


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/12/2015) Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner, who has been out with a skin infection on his thigh since July 27, could be activated by the team as early as Thursday, per the Orange County Register. According to the Los Angeles Times, Turner said he had MRSA, a serious strain of staph bacteria that's become resistant to antibiotics.

Turner's return to the lineup has been a little slower than normal to allow him to fully get back into baseball shape, and Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Wednesday was a day of "conditioning drills" for Turner, and that the team could activate him either Thursday or Friday. 

Turner has compiled a slash line of .323/.387/.563 for Los Angeles this season. 


Return of Dodgers 3B Justin Turner might be pushed back a bit

The Dodgers have struggled at that position since Turner went down two weeks ago. He has enjoyed a suprisingly productive season, compiling a slash line of .323/.387/.563.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

"We didn't think it would be that long," Mattingly told MLB.com. "Now he's got to get back in shape to be ready."

Turner has been a pleasant surprise this season and was particularly hot before going down with 17 hits, including two home runs, in his last 37 at-bats.
