Dodgers 3B Justin Turner Scratcher from Lineup on Saturday

August 13th, 2016

One of the hottest hitters in all of baseball, Los Angels Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner,  was scratched from the team's lineup on Saturday with a right hand contusion. Turner has batted .321 with 11 home runs, 35 RBIs and 164 wRC+ since June 24 and has been even better since the All Star Break.

With Turner out of the lineup, the Dodgers will turn to Rob Segedin at third base on Saturday. Segedin will bat seventh and is not a reccomended DFS play, especially given the Dodgers' matchup against Gerrit Cole. Turner should just be considered day-to-day for now.
