Justin Turner Avoids Surgery on Broken Wrist, Will Wear Brace with Injury


Justin Turner was removed from Monday's Cactus League contest after being hit by a pitch on his left wrist.

The Los Angeles Dodgers look set to be without one of their key players for the start of the 2018 season, after Justin Turner suffered a broken wrist in a spring training game.

It remains to be seen whether we'll see a breakthrough in contract talks before then. Christian is a type that just gets better from dealing with better football players.

The Dodgers appear poised to move Logan Forsythe from second base to third in Turner's absence and have Enrique Hernandez and Chase Utley share time at second.

Turner was last season's NLCS co-MVP, an honor he shared with Chris Taylor. Turner's power numbers dropped a bit last season, hitting 7 home runs less and nearly 20 less RBI, but his OPB was a career-high.415. In that series, which the Dodgers won in five games, Turner hit.333 with two home runs and seven runs batted in. While Los Angeles is a much better club when Turner is in the lineup, the reigning NL Champs have the depth to survive. That was only the second postseason walk-off in Dodgers history. He missed time previous year with a hamstring injury. Some have suggested that the 2017 Dodgers may actually have been the best baseball team ever. "It's unfortunate. I'll do everything I can to get back as fast as I can", Turner told reporters, per Shaikin.
