Justin Turner singled in the seventh inning against the White Sox on Tuesday night, joining a relatively rare group in Dodgers history, which is the thrust of this morning’s Leading Off with True Blue LA.
The single off of Reynaldo López was Turner’s 1,000th hit since joining the Dodgers, the 35th in franchise history to reach that mark. Turner is one of just four Dodgers with 1,000 hits to have played for the team in the 2000s, along with Eric Karros (1991-2002), Andre Ethier (2006-17), and Matt Kemp (2006-14, 2018).
Two other current active Dodgers have over 500 hits with the team — Chris Taylor (617 hits) and Cody Bellinger (584).
Also on this episode, why I think the Dodgers will call up a fresh arm to the bullpen on Wednesday, after Mitch White’s start on Tuesday and Clayton Kershaw’s pending return.
