Dodgers News: Justin Turner Held Out of Tuesday’s Lineup

Justin Turner will miss Tuesday night’s 2-game series opener against the Diamondbacks. The third basemen missed a short amount of time in early June due to a hamstring injury, which was also a minor setback.

Recent call-up and rookie Edwin Rios will take over at the hot corner for the former All-Star. Don’t look too much into Turner’s absence tonight. The rest he will get now will pay off in the second half, which is when the Dodgers will need him the most.

Turner’s 2019 campaign has been nothing short of spectacular, slashing .301/.386/.452. Although he did not make the All-Star team, Turner will receive some extra time off during the All-Star Break.
