MLB: Justin Turner doesn’t mess around with stories; he sends a powerful message to Dodgers about his future

Despite having had another great year with the Dodgersit’s time for the veteran third baseman justin turnerdoes not know if he will continue playing with the Los Angeles team next season MLB. However, “Red Beard” is clear that if the decision were in his hands, he would play in Los Angeles the remaining years of his career.

“I hope everything works out and it’s in a Dodgers uniform because obviously I’ve spent the last nine years here, my career has taken off here. It would be great to finish my career as a Dodger, but things don’t always go as planned.” He declared the 38-year-old third baseman on AM 150 LA Sports’ Roggin And Rodney podcast.

The Dodgers have a $16 million team option on Turner for the 2023 season with a $2 million buyout if they decline. Turner has been a valuable asset to the organization since he joined the team in 2014, as he continues to be a productive player both on offense and with his glove.

Turner hit .278/.350/.438 during the regular role. For that reason, he remains among the best offensive third basemen in the league. However, if the option is not exercised and “Red Beard” becomes a free agent, manager Dave Roberts could turn to infielders Miguel Vargas and Max Muncy as Turner’s replacements in the starting lineup.

In “Al Bat”, we truthfully present to our readers the most relevant aspects of the baseball world, mainly from the MLB, winter leagues in Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Venezuela and the Asian continent. I am a fan of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League and the Boston Red Sox in the American League. My big dream is to get to know the Fenway Park stadium, the historic venue of the “Patirrojos”.
