  • Red Sox's Justin Turner: Getting day off Thursday

    Turner is not in the lineup for Thursday's game in Baltimore, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Turner had started each of the last seven contests for the Red Sox but will get a well-earned break Thursday. Masataka Yoshida will serve as Boston's designated hitter and Bobby Dalbec will man first base.

  • Red Sox's Justin Turner: Playing through pain

    Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Wednesday he does not plan to shut down Turner, who has been dealing with a bone bruise in his heel since August, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

    Cora pledged Wednesday that the team will play out the string with its best players, and Turner has been one of them for much of the season. He started Wednesday's game, his 17th start through 19 games in September, but the injury may be taking its toll; Turner has a .625 OPS during the month. The player has given Cora no indication that he can't finish the season. "He won't tell me. He's always available. He wants to play," Cora said. "We signed him for 162-plus but right now, it looks like it's 162 and we've got to play through it. We've got to play all the way to the end." Turner is hitting .280 with 23 home runs, 95 RBI and an .818 OPS this season.

  • Red Sox's Justin Turner: Takes seat Monday

    Turner is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Rangers, according to Alex Speier of The Boston Globe.

    Turner recorded just one hit in 11 at-bats over the past two days, so manager Alex Cora decided to give him a breather Monday. Trevor Story will serve as Boston's designated hitter and Bobby Dalbec will get the nod at first base.

  • Red Sox's Justin Turner: Covers first for Casas

    Turner started at first base and went 2-for-4 with two doubles in Friday's 3-0 loss to the Blue Jays.

    Turner stepped in at first base for an injured Triston Casas (shoulder). The 38-year-old Turner has been a consistent producer and clubhouse presence all season for Boston and is expected to remain a regular over the final two weeks of the season. At this point, Adam Duvall is the veteran apt to lose plate appearances to younger talent.
