Justin Turner won't be disciplined by Major League Baseball

Free agent 3B Justin Turner won't be disciplined by Major League Baseball after he broke COVID-19 protocols during Game 6 of the 2020 World Series.

Fantasy Impact

The Dodgers learned that Turner tested positive for COVID-19 midway through the game, and he was then removed. However, he returned to the field to celebrate with the team after the Dodgers won. Commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement that the league could've "handled the situation more effectively."

Justin Turner tests positive for COVID-19, removed from Game 6

Justin Turner received a positive COVID-19 test and was removed from game 6 as a precaution. He was 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts before being replaced by Kike Hernandez in the eighth inning.

Fantasy Impact

It was a bizarre turn of events for Turner who had played most of the game before being removed. The league announced the reason for his removal following the conclusion of the game. The veteran third baseman finished the postseason with a .250/.333/.471 batting line to go along with six doubles, three home runs, and six RBI over 68 at-bats.

Justin Turner goes yard again in Game 4 defeat

Justin Turner went 4-for-5 with a double, a home run, and two runs scored as the Dodgers lost to the Rays 8-7 in Game 4 of the World Series on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Turner put the Dodgers on the board in the top of the first inning with a solo bomb to center field off Ryan Yarbrough. It was his second-consecutive first inning home run and he now holds the Dodgers team-record for the most career postseason home runs with 12. He picked up a double and scored his other run in the top of the seventh to put LA up 6-5. It was a back-and-forth game all night and Tampa winded up getting the last laugh. Turner is now batting .279 (17-for-61) with a .891 OPS to go along with three home runs and six RBI during the playoffs.

Justin Turner ties team-record with first inning HR on Friday

Justin Turner went 2-for-5 with a double, a home run, and two runs scored in the Dodgers 6-2 win over the Rays in Game 3 of the World Series on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Turner opened up the scoring in the top of the first inning when he took Charlie Morton deep to left field. It was Turner's 11th career playoff home run, which tied Duke Snider for the Dodgers' franchise record. Turner would also double and score in the third inning in a game that was never really in doubt for Los Angeles as their pitching held down the Tampa bats all evening. The veteran third baseman had struggled earlier in the postseason but he's picked up at least one hit, all for extra-bases, in all three World Series' games thus far.

Justin Turner swats first homer of the postseason on Saturday

Justin Turner went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in the Dodgers 3-1 victory over the Braves in Game 6 of the NLCS on Saturday,

Fantasy Impact

Turner went back-to-back with Corey Seager, his first homer of the postseason, in the first inning to put the Dodgers up 2-0. They would tack on one more run in the frame, which would be enough to pick up the win and force a Game 7. The third baseman has had a slow postseason thus far and is batting just .220/.313/.341 with one home run and four RBI over 41 at-bats. He had a .336 career batting average in the postseason prior to 2020.
