Dodgers fans waiting for Justin Turner to make a decision may finally have some peace. The veteran third baseman was reportedly involved with more teams this offseason, but that had whittled down to just two as of this weekend.
The latest post from Justin Turner himself says that he is returning to the Dodgers. JT posted a picture of himself with a comment that said “run it back” along with tagging the team in it. That would seem to suggest that there is indeed a deal in place.
The Dodgers have not yet confirmed the signing, and no national media teams have run with the story yet. But regardless, it sounds like JT is here to stay. We’ll keep you updated as details being to emerge on the signing.

The Milwaukee Brewers were one team that was reported to be interested in Turner, despite the appearance that there was not room in the infield. One source suggested that the Brewers could be interested in keeping him for a longer period of time, holding out hope for the DH. But the Dodgers get their man, and we can all sleep soundly tonight.
UPDATE: The latest report from ESPN’s Jeff Passan is that Turner is getting a 2-year deal north of $30 million. This is still developing.
And Turner himself added to the hype of his return.
