With so many players in their contract seasons for the Dodgers, 2020 baseball really just needs to get here already. Moreover, one Dodger that’s pretty open about his contract status is Justin Turner. The 2017 All-Star is in the final year of the 4-year contract he inked during the 2016 offseason.
As it stands — whether baseball is played in 2020 or not — he’s heading to free agency this winter and that’s something that makes the veteran feel a little unsettled.
“It’s definitely something that I’ve thought about a few times and don’t want. Obviously there’s a possibility that there’s no season and my Dodger career could’ve ended last year in the playoffs, which would be tough. It would be sad. Sad to think about. — via Jorge Castillo, LA Times
During spring training, Turner seemed a bit more confident that he would remain in Dodger blue beyond the season, but time will tell with this scenario.
In other news, if you’ve been joining or watching those Dodger Zoom parties, then you’re in for a bit of a treat with the upcoming third installment. The club announced that new Dodger Mookie Betts would be joining the call along with Walker Buehler and Gavin Lux. Turner will also be in on the action once again.
