Justin Turner’s Career with the Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers bench coach Tim Wallach had not yet found a new employer when he witnessed Turner hit at a Cal State Fullerton Alumni game.

On February 5, 2014, Turner signed a minor league contract with the Dodgers that included a spring training invitation. On March 16, the Dodgers acquired his contract and promoted him to the Major League roster.

Due to the injuries to Hanley Ramirez and Juan Uribe, Turner was able to play in 109 games in 2014.

In 288 at-bats, Turner batted.340, hitting seven home runs and driving in 43 runs. He was the team’s offensive avenger, outshining everyone else.

At an estimated value of $2.5 million for one year, he avoided salary arbitration by signing a contract with the Dodgers on January 16, 2015.

For much of the 2015 season, he was the team’s starting third baseman and hit.294 with 16 home runs and 60 RBI.

While facing his previous team, the Mets, in the 2015 National League Division Series, Turner had a.526 average in 19 at-bats, including six doubles, an LDS record.

His knee was operated on after the Dodgers were knocked out of the playoffs.

To avoid salary arbitration in January 2016, Turner signed a new one-year, $5.1 million contract with the Dodgers.
