Dodgers: Justin Turner Returns to the Lineup After Hamstring Scare

JT is back, and we couldn’t be happier.



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. 

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.

  1. I’d have him at DH right now, and probably throughout the postseason. We need JT’s bat more than his glove. The DH is less likely to get injured or aggravate an existing injury. Why chance it? The DH is perfect for JT at this time.

  2. J.T. TO THE D.H. LET BALL BOUNCE OVER HIS HEAD W/ NOT EFFORT TO GET IT. FIND A PLACE FOR J.T. NEXT YR.IN PR WORK. BUUUT MUST CUT HAIR & TRIM BEARD CLOSE IN ORDER TO REP. DODGERS AND L.A. PRO BALL PLAYERS SHOULD REP. M.L.B. LIKE A PRO.
