LA puts Turner on DL with hamstring strain

Turner, signed to a four-year, $ 64 million contract during the offseason, was leading the Dodgers with a .379 batting average and .946 OPS.

Chris Taylor and Enrique Hernandez are Turner’s likely replacements at third base. 

Eibner is likely to be a temporary presence, as second baseman Logan Forsythe is expected to be activated off the disabled list within the next week.
