Dodgers | Justin Turner timeline

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 16:29:49 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner (leg, illness) will need another six to seven days before resuming baseball activities.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Turner ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) to miss two weeks, at the most, and it is unlikely he'll require a minor league rehab assignment. Continue to monitor the situation, and expect Alex Guerrero ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) to see the majority of starts at third base with Turner out.

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 16:15:02 -0700

Dodgers | Justin Turner placed on disabled list

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 15:55:40 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner (leg, illness) was placed on the disabled list Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners will want to check back for a return timeline for Turner ($5,300, 10.6% of cap). He has emerged as a legit force this season, and over the past two seasons no one has a higher wOBA (.420) than he does against right-handed pitchers. Expect Alex Guerrero ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) to receive the majority of starts at third base, but the young slugger's offense has fell off the map since his hot start to the season. Guerrero has a .176/.189/.315 slash line over his past 50 games.

Dodgers | DL decision looms over Justin Turner

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 16:31:53 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner (illness, leg) could require a stint on the disabled list, but the team needs to wait for the lab test results on his leg infection to determine if it is necessary, according to manager Don Mattingly.

Fantasy Tip: Turner ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) is having a banner campaign, so fantasy owners will want to keep an eye on the situation and check back for updates. Alex Guerrero ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) stands to receive a boost in playing time for the duration of Turner's absence. Expect an announcement sooner than later.

Dodgers | No Justin Turner against Oakland

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 15:21:21 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner (illness, leg) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 29. OF Alex Guerrero is starting at third base and batting eighth against Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Turner ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) had to visit the emergency room Tuesday, July 28, because he had a bad reaction to an antibiotic he was taking for his leg. So this a situation to monitor going forward. Guerrero ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) started strong this season, but he is currently reeling through a 19-for-105 slump dating back to Thursday, May 14. There is upside, but FantasyScore players should likely wait for Guerrero to show some life at the plate before utilizing him in contests.

Dodgers | Justin Turner leads rout

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 20:05:10 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner went 3-for-5 with a home run, two doubles, two RBI and a run scored in a 7-2 win over the New York Mets Friday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: Turner ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) continues to destroy left-handed pitching this season, and for the price, he is a borderline must-start option at FantasyScore against lefties.

Dodgers | Justin Turner out of lineup

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 06:33:26 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner is out of the lineup Wednesday, July 22, in favor of 3B Alberto Callaspo.

Fantasy Tip: Turner has rested every third day since the second half opened, so this looks to be a trend that may continue. Callaspo ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) isn't a good option on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Justin Turner sitting out

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 08:03:46 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner is not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Max Scherzer Sunday, July 19. 3B Alberto Callaspo will start at third base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Turner ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return soon. Callaspo ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has only two hits over his last 10 games and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Justin Turner taking a breather

Thu, 09 Jul 2015 15:24:59 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 9. 3B Alberto Callaspo is starting at the hot corner and hitting eighth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Severino Gonzalez.

Fantasy Tip: Callaspo ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is very cheap at FantasyScore and could be a huge value gainer tonight against Gonzalez, who has an 8.28 ERA in six starts for the Phillies this year. Callaspo also provides a great source of salary cap relief if you're trying to start two ace pitchers tonight.
