Dodgers' Justin Turner Hit By Pitch, Breaks Wrist

Dodgers' Justin Turner Hit By Pitch, Breaks Wrist

Turner was hit by a pitch thrown by the Oakland Athletics' Kendall Graveman.

Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner will not need surgery on his injured left wrist, manager Dave Roberts told reporters Tuesday. Turner grunted and winced as he jogged away from the plate toward the dugout, his hand hanging limp at his side.

"I was hoping obviously the X-rays would be negative, but there's a small non-displaced fracture", said Turner, who led the Dodgers a year ago by getting plunked 19 times.

Lee's injury was much more significant than Turner's, but it's safe to assume the Dodger 3rd baseman is going to miss at least the first few months of baseball.

United to stop carrying animals in cargo compartments temporarily
The "PetSafe" program only applies to cargo travel, meaning passengers can still bring domesticated pets in aircraft cabins. He said the airline would consult independent experts in pet safety and assured that United is not killing the program.

Donovan Solano served as Turner's pinch runner, and Solano took over at third base when the Dodgers went into the field. This is not what the Dodgers were hoping for with Opening Day approaching, as their star third baseman will likely begin the season on the disabled list.

"We're not as good of a team without J.T.", Zaidi said, adding "We do feel good about our internal options".

They also could try and use either Chris Tayler, who filled in at shortstop for Corey Seager against the Cubs during the NLCS last October or even move backup catcher Austin Barnes to 2nd, who's played some games there last season.

The injury will have been even more disappointing for Turner, having enjoyed his most successful season past year which saw him get his first All-Star Game selection, having hit a career-high.322 with 21 home runs.
