Justin Turner-17 games, 43 AB, 9 R, 20 H, 6 2B, 8 RBI, 3 HR, 1 BB , 2 SO, 1 SB .465/.489/.814
Holy smokes, Justin Turner has been good. He’s been slugging away, and the Dodgers were really smart- or lucky- to pick up Turner last February as a free agent. The non-roster invite ended up being an integral part of the Dodgers success in 2014 as a hot hitting utility player. Turner has been playing on the left side of the infield, but he is much better at third base than shortstop. The Dodgers will have to try to find Turner a spot in the lineup in order to not waste his offensive potential.
Even though Don Mattingly says he is not concerned with Juan Uribe’s lackluster Spring, the Dodgers probably won’t hesitate to play Turner more often should Uribe’s bat remain cold come April.
