Dodgers News: Injury Updates on Turner, Pederson and Ethier

It is no surprise that the injury bug has come up and bit the Dodgers again for the 2017 season.

Sidelined are many of their contributors. Even though the team seems to be excelling without them, they can only get better with the more talent that comes off of the disabled list.

Courtesy of Sports Net LA’s Alanna Rizzo, we have updates on Justin Turner, Joc Pederson and Andre Ethier.

Justin Turner looks like he is the closest to coming back as there have been reports of him working out for about a week. He has been sidelined with a grade-1 hamstring strain.

Joc Pederson, who is on the 7-day concussion DL has yet to do any sort of baseball activities. Both he and Turner are unlikely to be back before the series against the Washington Nationals.

Now the bad news. Andre Ethier is still yet to participate in any baseball activities. His original return date was set for mid-June but now it is looking like it will not be until mid-July at the earliest.
