Just one day after the Dodgers scratched Justin Turner from their lineup, all is right in the world again. It sounds like that hamstring that he felt some discomfort in wasn’t enough to force him out for another game.
Turner has reportedly asked Dave Roberts to start him today, and that seems to signal that he is feeling fine. The Dodgers released their lineup this afternoon with Turner in it and manning the hot corner. This will be his first time in the field since he left a game with an injury back in August.
Justin Turner will play 5-6 innings tonight in the field before they trnsition to Rios at the hot corner.
Hamstring feels good.

Getting Turner back into action tonight is great timing for the Dodgers. With the playoffs set to kick off next week, getting him reps at this stage is vital. Worst-case scenario, JT could likely be the DH for the playoffs if his hamstring isn’t quite right though.
