Dodgers will overcome Justin Turner's broken wrist

Justin Turner

The Dodgers superstar broke his left wrist when a 94 miles per hour fastball struck him in the first inning during the team's 3-1 win over the A's on Monday night. The first inning pitch that hit Turner was thrown by Kendall Graveman a right-hander for the A's. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts announced the diagnosis after the game. It started to feel better getting the X-ray and I was hoping it would come back negative.

Turner was last season's NLCS co-MVP, an honor he shared with Chris Taylor. He will be sidelined beyond Opening Day, and general manager Farhan Zaidi said Turner's type of injury is "usually on the order of weeks" but won't necessitate trading for a replacement.

Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times speculated that its unlikely Turner will return before May, but noted that the third baseman said he won't know an official prognosis until visiting a doctor on Tuesday.

The speculation has been that they would select Saquon Barkley first and a quarterback fourth, but now that plan must be omitted. The Jets haven't spent a first-round pick on a quarterback since Mark Sanchez in 2009, and they've suffered the consequences.

The military intervention came after the USA said it would set up a 30,000-strong militant border force at Turkish doorstep. On Jan. 20, Turkey launched Operation Olive Branch to clear YPG/PKK-Daesh terrorists from Afrin, northwestern Syria.

Turner's power numbers dropped a bit last season, hitting 7 home runs less and nearly 20 less RBI, but his OPB was a career-high.415. A player like former Cubs 1st baseman Derrek Lee, who broke two bones in his wrist the season after clubbing 46 home runs, never truly regained his power stroke.

The Dodgers appear poised to move Logan Forsythe from second base to third in Turner's absence and have Enrique Hernandez and Chase Utley share time at second.

While we don't know how long Turner is expected to be out, we do know that broken wrists can lead Major League Baseball players to miss 6-to-9 weeks of action, meaning Turner should be on the shelf until May and potentially June.
