Injury updates on Alex Verdugo, Justin Turner

Edwin Rios called up

MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at Boston Red Sox Brian Fluharty-USA TODAY Sports

Justin Turner scratched from lineup

Initially, Turner was in the starting lineup hitting third and playing third base. Shortly after, the lineup was changed, and he was no longer starting. Luckily, it looks like it’s nothing serious, and the club just wanted to give him some extra rest as he is dealing with a bit of an ankle injury.

Alex Verdugo update

There still isn’t a timetable as to when we can see Verdugo return. The rookie has been out for over a month, and has experienced some setbacks with his recovery. With his return still questionable, the Dodgers have brought up Edwin Rios to fill his void.
