Nationals manager Dusty Baker said the club will activate shortstop Trea Turner from the 10-day disabled list on Tuesday, Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post reports.

Turner, 24, has been sidelined since late June with a fractured right wrist suffered when he was hit by a pitch. He’ll come back batting .279/.324/.422 with seven home runs, 32 RBI, 53 runs scored, and 35 stolen bases in 315 plate appearances.

The Nationals, who have a 13-game first-place lead in the NL East, just got Max Scherzer and Jayson Werth back. As long as the club is able to get Bryce Harper and Ryan Madson back before the postseason, they’ll feel good to go in October.
