Justin Turner is getting back to the Los Angeles Dodgers, reporting through Twitter on Saturday night that he’s prepared to “run it back” with the World Series champions.
The 36-year-old third baseman batted .307 with four homers, 23 RBIs and an .860 OPS during the pandemic-abbreviated 2020 season.
He hit .320 with two homers during the World Series prior to being pulled from the choosing Game 6 subsequent to testing positive for the Covid. He notoriously broke convention by getting back to the field after the last out and eliminated his cover close to colleagues during the festival. MLB ruled against rebuffing him.
Turner turned into a free specialist when his $64 million, four-year manage the Dodgers terminated after the World Series. He acquired a customized $7,037,037 of his $19 million compensation in 2020.
A slow developer in the wake of redesiging his swing in his late 20s, Turner has been an anchor in the Dodgers’ setup for the majority of their eight straight NL West titles. The red-headed slugger hit .302 with 116 homers more than seven seasons in Los Angeles.
The Dodgers are set to bring back basically the very group that won the 2020 title – alongside NL Cy Young Award victor Trevor Bauer, who marked a $102 million, three-year manage Los Angeles this week. Adding Bauer and returning Turner gave the Dodgers a splashy completion to a generally tranquil offseason, solidifying the champs as a danger to rehash only days before pitchers and catchers are set to report for spring training.
