Roberts added to the decision to continue to play Trea.
“He would not be on the injured list but he would probably take a day if it were the regular season.”
Great to hear that it’s not as serious as it looked, but you also have to wonder how much of an impact Turner will make.
Tonight is a must-win for Los Angeles, so everyone must show up. Roberts wouldn’t have Trea in the lineup if it were really bad. If you’re in, you must contribute and I expect nothing less from the shortstop.
A Grade 2 sprain means that he’s partially torn his ligament. There is a greater reduction in range of motion and some loss of strength with more swelling and pain.
Not what you want to hear, but at least we have an idea of what Turner will be dealing with tonight.
Do or die tonight; everyone must step up to force a game 5 in this best-of-five series. Bats must be alive so the Dodgers can remain alive.
