Dodgers lose MLB hitting leader Turner to DL

Updated: May 19, 2017

The Los Angeles Dodgers placed third baseman Justin Turner on the 10-day disabled list on Friday with a strained right hamstring.

Turner on Thursday left the Dodgers’ 7-2 win over the Miami Marlins after suffering the injury while trying to score in the seventh inning.

Turner had an MRI for the injury on Friday, after which the Dodgers announced the move.

They also recalled outfielder Brett Eibner from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Turner pulled up after rounding third base and hobbled toward home plate, only to be tagged out after the throw from the outfield.

Turner entered the game hitting an MLB-best .379, with a home run and 17 RBIs.
