Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner suffers broken left wrist | ESPN

Justin Turner has a broken left wrist after being hit by a pitch during Los Angeles’ 3-1 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Monday night.

Turner was struck by a pitch from right-hander Kendall Graveman in the first inning.

“I was hoping obviously the X-rays would be negative, but there’s a small non-displaced fracture,’’ Turner said. “We’ll just play it by ear, see how it goes.’‘

Ouch.

Much as I developed an intense dislike for the lovechild of Chris Elliott and Tormund Giantsbane during last year's LCS, hate to see this.

The ball was just-in and he was a wrong-way turner.

####### I hate myself so much.

Braves lost Freddie Freeman last year for 6 weeks in just the same way. You could see the LHP working him in on every pitch of the AB, until he eventually got him. I sure don't like these pitchers telling everyone they own the inside on the hitter; crap like this happens.

A's play the Dodgers in LA second week of April. If I were Graveman I'd wear a flak jacket for my ABs.

Or, hitters could stop acting like they own the inside half and not turn in to every ball. That's at least a small part of the boom in offense. Hitters attack the plate much more aggressively.

No one "owns" the plate or the territory around the plate. But if pitchers don't pitch inside, they will get lit up. The ball is hard and coming very fast. Hitters should watch out they don't get hurt.

The Nats lost Trea Turner for several weeks also. He was giving Hamilton a run for stolen base lead until then. He didn’t run as often, but his OBP was 40 points higher, so he had more opportunity to pick his spots.

Injuries happen. I don't want to see Freeman or Turner hurt either, but it is an occupational hazard of the game. This does not appear to have been remotely intentional.

MLB At Bat reports no surgery for Turner, "he'll be in a brace for a few days and then begin range of motion exercises." Sounds like he dodged a bullet.

If not a ball.

Wrist injuries sap power. He might be able to play the field but it's going to affect his swing for a good chunk of the season.

Wrist injuries sap power.


Sandberg 1993, Sosa 1997. Just sayin.
