LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner was voted by his teammates as the Dodgers representative for the 2015 Marvin Miller Man of the Year award, an honor given annually by the MLB Players Association for a player's contributions both on and off the field.

Turner is one of 30 players, one from each MLB team, vying to be a finalist for the award. Fans can vote at MLBPlayers.com through Sept. 13 to determine the six finalists for the award, one from each division. MLB players will then vote among the six finalists to determine the winner, announced in November.

Clayton Kershaw won the 2014 Marvin Miller an of the Year award, one of three Players Choice Awards he won last season.

Turner is hitting .284/.355/.490 with 23 doubles and 15 home runs in 111 games this season. Among his many charitable endeavors include the Los Angeles Dream Center, Long Beach Rescue Mission and Cedars Sinai Hospital.
