Before he was removed from a game against the Marlins half way through the month, Justin Turner was producing in a big way. Turner was batting .333 in 51 at-bats up until he rounded third base a little too hard and pulled up with a hamstring injury.
Although his power has been absent, the Dodgers have missed his high on-base percentage and batting average. Since then, third base has consisted of Logan Forsythe, Kike Hernandez, and Chris Taylor. All are exceptionally good defenders, but only Taylor has been able to mirror the offensive output.
There is not an immediate rush to get him back into the lineup, but his absence is starting to be felt. Up until the last three games, the offense seemed to be producing without him. However, Los Angeles has only scored three runs in the last 28 innings. If the current trend continues, his bat will be sorely missed.
Final slash line in May: .333/.435/.373
