Justin Turner and Juan Uribe suffer injuries on back-to-back plays

The Dodgers were dealt some rotten luck tonight against the Diamondbacks, as Justin Turner and Juan Uribe suffered injuries on back-to-back plays.

Turner, who made the start at third base to give Uribe a day off, got spiked on his left hand on a hard slide from A.J. Pollock in the third inning. He was replaced by Uribe, who fielded a grounder off the bat of Paul Goldschmidt on the very next play and made a twisting throw across the diamond to get the out. However, he hurt himself while making the play and Alex Guerrero came up as a pinch-hitter in the next half-inning. Hot corner? More like hot potato corner. I’m sorry.

The good news is that both players are considered day-to-day. Turner was diagnosed with left finger stiffness and X-rays came back negative. Meanwhile, Uribe is dealing with left hamstring tightness.
