Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner left Monday’s game against the Cubs with discomfort in his quadriceps, per Doug Padilla of ESPN.

Turner was hit by a pitch on his right hand in the eighth inning, then was erased on a force play at second base, a play that saw the Dodgers tie the score. He was then removed in a double switch when relief pitcher Sergio Romo entered the game in the bottom of the inning.

Manager Dave Roberts said Turner would be reevaluated on Tuesday, an off day for the Dodgers, per Padilla.

Turner is 10-for-28 (.357) in seven games so far this season, and is tied for the major league lead with five doubles.

The Dodgers were also without outfielder Franklin Gutierrez, who left in the second inning with a left hamstring injury, and relief pitcher Luis Avilan, who threw 27 pitches on Sunday.

Up next

The Dodgers have their first off day of the season on Tuesday, but then get back at it on Wednesday night, with Brandon McCarthy on the mound against John Lackey in a battle of veteran right-handers on Wednesday night, another 5:05 p.m. PT start.
