Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner left last night’s game against the Cubs with discomfort in his quad.

It was a rough night overall for Turner, as he was hit by a pitch on his right hand. He was removed in a double switch in the bottom of the eighth due to the aching quadriceps. It may have happened when he slid into second base on a force out following the HBP.

It may not be too serious. Manager Dave Roberts said Turner would be reevaluated today, which the Dodgers have off before resuming their series against the Cubs.

Turner is off to a fast start this year, going 10-for-28 with five doubles in his first seven games. If he can’t play, Logan Forsythe will likely move over from second to cover the hot corner while Chase Utley would get the start at second.
