Good news, Dodgers fans! Although we don’t have an exact date, the return of our favorite red head is getting closer and closer. In anticipation for the weekend series in Mexico, Dave Roberts gave the media an update on Justin Turner’s progress.
Roberts said Turner should return within the next couple of weeks.

Sure, it still isn’t as soon as we’d like, but it’s a lot better than the update from a few days ago. The other day, Roberts said he has no idea when Turner would return. Now, we’re just weeks away. The other day, J.T. posted a video on Twitter of him taking some hacks off of a tee. On Friday, we got an even better post.

By the looks of it, he’s beginning to take hacks in the cages as well! This as the Dodgers finally begin to swing their bats like we know they can. It’s been a rough going
There’s no question the Dodgers are in desperate need for Turner to return. Ranked No. 25 in the majors in home runs, the Dodgers are eagerly waiting for his bat to be back in that lineup. It hasn’t been the start everyone was hoping for, but with “The Red Dream” returning soon, things seem to be looking up for the boys in blue!
