MLB: Washington Nationals at Los Angeles Dodgers Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

It looks like the Dodgers will avoid a major scare, as Justin Turner isn’t expected to be placed on the injured list. He was taken out of last nights game with a left shin contusion. Luckily, the x-rays came back negative.

This is certainly great news for the team, as Turner could even be in the game today if need be. With depth and some off-days on the horizon, Turner and the Dodgers will be able to slowly bring him back until he’s 100 percent.

Turner has really been on a tear since the end of April. He’s hitting .333 with an OPS of over 1.000 since April 26. All six of his homers have come during this stretch as well.
