Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner has a broken left wrist after being hit by a pitch during a spring training game.
Turner was struck by a pitch from Oakland's Kendall Graveman in the first inning Monday night in Glendale, Ariz. Turner grunted and winced as he jogged away from the plate toward the dugout, his hand hanging limp at his side. He was quickly visited by a trainer and replaced.
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts announced the diagnosis after the game.
Turner, 33, hit .322 with 21 homers and 71 RBI last season. He also led the team and finished third in the majors by getting plunked 19 times.
