Trea Turner suffered an apparent hand injury in the 8th inning of Game 3 as a base runner on a pickoff attempt. Turner dove back to the bag, but jammed his fingers on the base, and came up in immediate pain.
Turner went back to the dugout, got another hand cover, and went back out to first. The Dodgers then stranded him on the bases, and Turner stayed in the game at shortstop.
After the game, Dave Roberts said that Turner went for X-rays to figure out exactly what happened to his fingers, and they came back negative. So that’s great news for Turner and the Dodgers.
#Dodgers Trea Turner said his right ring finger is sore, but x-rays were negative. Biggest test tomorrow will be how much he’s able to grip the bat.

The Dodgers play in less than 24 hours, so his availability will be the biggest story depending on how his hand feels when he wakes up tomorrow.
Turner has been one of the Dodgers’ best hitters this series, going 4-13 with two home runs and two runs batted in.
He’s struggled in the field through the first three games, but who knows where the Dodgers would be without his bat.
We’ll keep you posted on his status tomorrow as more information comes in.
