Fantasy Impact:

Turner had another injury shortened season last year for the Dodgers with a broken left wrist on a HBP last spring and a groin strain in July. He slashed .312/.406/.518 in 365 at bats with 14 homers, and continued to show elite level plate discipline. Turner has averaged 410 at bats per year over his last five years so draft accordingly, but his numbers show no sign of deteriorating this year if he can avoid a long DL stint.
