Latest Update Justin Turner went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored in the Dodgers 8-6 win over the Padres on Tuesday night. Wed Aug, 20, 02:31 AM
Shows plate discipline, hits a lot of doubles, has decent speed and will drive in runs when given the opportunity. Displays a solid glove and the ability to play several infield positions.
Flaws: : Doesn't stand out in any one particular area. Needs a little work on his base-running as a potential top-of-the-order type.
Tuner has now started three straight games for the Dodgers, going 4-for-11 with three RBI and two runs scored in that stretch as he continues to do a good job while splitting the hot corner with Juan Uribe. He is now slashing .308/.380/.425 with three home runs and 27 RBI through 214 at-bats, but does not produce enough outside of the batting average category to warrant fantasy consideration.

Singleton would serve as a solid reserve player for either the Heat or the Pacers next season, but it is unclear who has or hasn't made him an offer up to this point. However, whether he lands in Indians or South Beach, he has very little fantasy upside outside of extremely deep league formats moving forward. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Turner will resume his work as a utility man around the infield as Juan Uribe has taken third base back for himself right now and Dee Gordon is still handling the work at the keystone. Turner will simply work as a pinch-hitter off the bench and occasionally get a start in the infield when someone is due for a rest.Analyst: Howard Bender
Turner left Saturday's game with a left groin injury and the Dodgers wasted no time in putting him on the disabled list. It is bad timing for Turner because he has been hot the entire month of June to the tune of a .400 (22-for-55) batting average with one home run and 11 RBIs. Carlos Triunfel will take Turner's spot on the 25-man roster.Analyst: David Kerr
