Roberts says Turner won’t need surgery
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Los Angeles third baseman Justin Turner’s broken left wrist is expected to heal without surgery, according to Dodgers manager Dave Roberts.
Turner was hurt Monday when hit by a pitch from Oakland’s Kendall Graveman.
Turner arrived at the Dodgers’ spring training facility with a cast over his wrist Tuesday morning and was scheduled to see a hand specialist for an estimate of the time he could miss.
“We know that it’s not a surgery thing, it’s just essentially time,” Roberts said. “That’s the initial thought. That could change but that’s what I’ve heard.”
Turner hit .322 with 21 homers and 71 RBIs last year and was a first-time All-Star.
