Player Outlook
While it wasn't by design, the Red Sox and Dodgers switched designated hitters with Justin Turner signing in Boston on a one-year contract, with a player option. The deal called for a bonus every 20 plate appearances between 480 and 560. Turner should have kept going in the negotiation as he finished with a career-high 626 trips to the dish, mostly at designated hitter, but he also played ample first base to qualify at the spot next season, as well as appearing at second and third base. Turner set a new personal best with 96 RBI while falling one short of tying his career mark in runs. Even so, Turner's 114 wRC+ was his lowest since 2013, his last season with the Mets. Turner declined his $13.4 million player option, so his role entering 2024 is unclear. He's avoided the IL for two of the past three seasons, but at 39-years-old, he can't be counted on for another full season. Even so, especially with first base eligibility, Turner can be a mixed league asset, just have a backup corner at the ready.

  • Blue Jays' Justin Turner: Back from paternity leave

    The Blue Jays reinstated Turner from the paternity list Saturday. Turner won't start Saturday's game against Seattle, but he should retain his role as the Jays' primary designated hitter after spending three days away from the team for the birth of his child. The 39-year-old has slashed .250/.359/.375 on the season, though he boasts a 1.009 OPS over his last nine contests. Addison Barger was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo in a corresponding move.

Assuming he is out for the next three games, his return is slated for Saturday's contest against the Mariners.

  • Blue Jays' Justin Turner: Productive in rout

    Turner went 1-for-3 with a walk, two runs scored and an RBI in Thursday's win over the Yankees. The hit was a fluky one -- he squibbed a ball down the first-base line and it caromed off the bag and away from Ben Rice rather than rolling foul -- but Turner still put together a productive night in a 9-2 rout. The veteran slugger has found a groove at the plate, going 10-for-25 (.400) over the last eight games with a double, a homer, four RBI, seven runs and an 8:6 BB:K. Despite the surge, Turner's .715 OPS on the season would be his lowest mark since 2013.

  • Blue Jays' Justin Turner: Goes deep in loss

    Turner went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a double, two runs scored and a walk in Monday's loss to Boston. Turner scored Toronto's first run after drawing a walk in the second inning. He later ripped a solo shot in the sixth inning for his fifth home run of the year. He snapped a 33-game homerless drought, during which he slashed .155/.250/.191. Turner now owns a .691 OPS with 18 extra-base hits and 24 runs scored through 233 plate appearances.

  • Blue Jays' Justin Turner: On bench Sunday

    Turner is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Guardians. George Springer will get the start at DH as Addison Barger takes over in right field against right-hander Ben Lively. Age has caught up to Turner in a hurry -- he's slashing .225/.314/.345 with four home runs this season -- and the veteran will likely continue to receive regular rest days as the Blue Jays work in newcomers like Barger and Spencer Horwitz.

  • Blue Jays' Justin Turner: Heading to bench Wednesday

    Turner is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers. Turner will head to the bench for the second time in the series, opening up the designated-hitter spot for Daniel Vogelbach in the finale. Though he's begun to heat up in June with a .400 on-base percentage and .407 slugging percentage, Turner is still maintaining a .676 OPS on the season, the worst mark of his career since he became an everyday player in the big leagues.

  • Blue Jays' Justin Turner: One of three sick Toronto players

    Blue Jays manager John Schneider said Turner is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Orioles due to an illness, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports. Turner's absence from the lineup for Sunday's 5-1 loss to the Twins was believed to be for maintenance purposes while he was in the midst of a 1-for-22 slump at the plate over his previous five starts, but he's apparently a victim of the bug that seems to be making its way around the Toronto clubhouse. He'll be on the bench for a second straight day Monday, while George Springer and Kevin Kiermaier are out of the lineup for the third and fourth time, respectively, in the four games due to illnesses of their own.
