Turner was 1-for-2 against Diamondbacks starter Taijuan Walker last Sunday at Dodger Stadium.
The Dodgers also switched things up a bit, with Joc Pederson batting leadoff for the first time this season. Andrew Toles shifts to seventh, with Chase Utley eighth.
Alex Wood starts for the Dodgers on Friday, his second start and fourth appearance of the season. So far, opposing batters are just 3-for-32 (.094) with six walks and eight strikeouts against Wood in 2017, including 0-for-14 with four walks and four strikeouts from left-handers.
In fact, Wood hasn’t allowed a hit to a left-hander since last September, with their 0-for-26 mark the longest active hitless streak in the majors, per STATS LLC.
The only two left-handers starting for the Diamondbacks on Friday are third baseman Jake Lamb and right fielder David Peralta.
