Fri Jul 1201:39Trea Turner Homers, Swipes Bag On Thursday
Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Trea Turner showed off his power/speed combination on Thursday, going 2-for-4 with a homer and a stolen base in a 5-1 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers. Turner added a walk, a run scored, and an RBI to round out a solid overall line. The 31-year-old five-category contributor has been on a bender in July, going 16-for-37 (.432) with 10 runs, six homers, 15 RBI, and two steals in nine games. After a rough 2023, Turner has returned to form as one of the best all-around players in fantasy. He should be viewed as a borderline first-round player again.
Wed Jul 1001:20Trea Turner Smacks Grand Slam Tuesday Night
Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Trea Turner went 3-for-4 with a grand slam Tuesday night in a 10-1 walloping of the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Phils were up 4-0 when before they loaded the bases for Turner who jumped on a Bobby Miller first-pitch slider and sent into the left-field bleachers. The speedy shortstop could have even done more damage potentially, but he was removed for pinch-hitter Whit Merrifield in the bottom of the 8th inning who got to face a position player on the mound, Kike Hernandez. There's not much else to say about the 31-year-old shortstop besides that he's enjoying his second season in the City of Brotherly love and has been one of the best hitters, if not the best, hitter in the game since he returned from the injured list back on June 17th.
Sat Jul 600:08Trea Turner Hits A Pair Of Homers In Win
Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Trea Turner put on an incredible offensive display, hitting two home runs in Friday's 8-6 victory over the division-rival Atlanta Braves. After hitting a 459-foot two-run homer off Braves left-hander Max Fried to left field to extend the Phillies' lead to 3-0 in the fourth inning, Turner tagged the southpaw once more for a solo shot to push the advantage to 5-2 in the sixth frame. The 31-year-old All-Star infielder has been amazing for fantasy managers when healthy this season, batting a torrid .341 (71-for-208) with seven long balls, 22 RBI, 43 runs scored, and 11 stolen bases over 49 games. Since coming off the injured list on June 17, Turner has hit safely in 14 of his 17 outings.
Wed Jul 300:08Trea Turner Homers Twice Tuesday
Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Trea Turner had another strong game at the plate in Tuesday's 6-4 win over the Cubs. Turner went 3-for-4 with a single, a solo home run, a two-run HR, and four RBI. The 31-year-old crushed a third-inning solo shot and drilled a two-run HR in his next at-bat in the fifth. Turner has missed some time with injury this season but has been excellent when in the lineup, slashing .338/.386/.487 with five HR, 38 runs scored, 18 RBI, and 10 stolen bases in 210 plate appearances. Fantasy managers should continue to reap the benefit of Turner's five-category skillset while hitting in one of baseball's best lineups.
Sat Jun 2206:47Trea Turner Homers, Drives In Three In Friday's Loss
Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Trea Turner had a big night in a 5-4 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday. Turner went 2-for-4 with a homer and three RBI but it wasn't quite enough as the Phillies fell to the D-Backs. The veteran shortstop is putting together another strong season, hitting .344 with three homers, 29 runs, 12 RBI, and 10 steals across 151 at-bats. While his home run numbers are down from past seasons, Turner remains an elite source of batting average, steals, and runs scored in fantasy leagues and should remain locked into fantasy lineups moving forward.
Thu Jun 1300:54Trea Turner Runs Bases Wednesday
Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Trea Turner (hamstring) ran the bases before Wednesday's game against the Boston Red Sox, which is one of the last major hurdles in his rehab program. Turner still needs to test out a few other aspects of baserunning, which he will do over the next few days. When asked if Turner is targeting a return during the club's upcoming homestand, manager Rob Thomson said: "I think so, yeah. And if it's sooner than that, that's great." This narrows down Turner's return timeline from a strained left hamstring, as it sounds like he'll either be ready as early as this weekend against the Baltimore Orioles or early next week when the Phillies return home for Monday's series opener against the San Diego Padres. The 30-year-old two-time All-star was returning early-round fantasy numbers before going down, batting .343 (47-for-137) with two home runs, nine RBI, 27 runs scored, and 10 stolen bases over 33 games.

Sat Jun 100:09Still No Timetable For Trea Turner's Return
Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Trea Turner (hamstring) participated in some light fielding drills before Friday's series opener against the visiting St. Louis Cardinals. There's no timetable on when Turner will start running the bases, however, per manager Rob Thomson. Turner experienced a minor setback with leg soreness amid his recovery from a strained left hamstring during the club's series in Colorado against the Rockies last weekend, and he still needs to ramp up his running program and go through baserunning and sliding drills before starting a minor-league rehab assignment, so he's unlikely to return to the Phillies until after the club's London Series with the division-rival New York Mets on June 8 and 9. Meanwhile, Edmundo Sosa is slashing a robust .307/.378/.591 with four home runs, 15 RBI, 19 runs scored, and two stolen bases over 88 at-bats (30 games) this year and represents a high-end fantasy streamer until Turner is back.

Sat May 2522:03Trea Turner Runs At Higher Intensity On Saturday
Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Trea Turner (hamstring) ran at a higher intensity on Saturday. According to Phillies manager Rob Thomson, this would be a "heavy" day for him. Turner could run the bases as soon as Monday's series against the San Francisco Giants. The 30-year-old will need to progress into running the bases before he can face live pitching and potentially begin a rehab assignment. He has been sidelined since the beginning of May with a left hamstring injury. Turner slashed .343/.392/.460 with two home runs, nine RBI, 27 runs, and 10 stolen bases over 148 plate appearances in 2024. If Turner can clear a few hurdles, the Phillies star shortstop could return from the injured list soon.

Wed May 2221:06Trea Turner Takes Grounders, Runs Arcs Wednesday
Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Trea Turner (hamstring) was taking grounders ahead of Wednesday's game versus the visiting Texas Rangers. Turner has been taking batting practice and also ran arcs in the outfield on Wednesday, which typically preludes running the bases, but he'll get a "pullback day" on Thursday before resuming his ramp-up during the club's weekend series against the Colorado Rockies. Although there's no timeline yet for Turner's return from a strained left hamstring, he could potentially begin a minor-league rehab assignment before the end of May and rejoin Philly's lineup as early as June 8 for the start of the Phillies' two-game series against the division-rival New York Mets in London. Edmundo Sosa is worth a look in deep mixed or NL-only leagues in the interim, slashing .296/.406/.481 with one home run, eight RBI, 13 runs scored, and two stolen bases over 65 plate appearances this year.

Tue May 2117:29Trea Turner Hits On The Field Tuesday
Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Trea Turner (hamstring) hit on the field on Tuesday and ran at 80 percent intensity. The Phillies are encouraged by his progress but continue to say that Turner will not be rushed. The 30-year-old All-Star has not reported any soreness in recent days as he has increased his baseball activities, which is another great sign. Turner is making excellent progress from a left-hamstring injury that was initially expected to keep him out for around six weeks. If he keeps progressing at this rate, though, it might be hard for the Phillies to keep him from coming back well before that mark. Before getting hurt, Turner was hitting an inflated .343 (47-for-137) with two home runs, nine RBI and 10 stolen bases. Edmundo Sosa has filled in nicely at the 6 in his stead, but Turner is the unquestioned starter at short in Philly when he's healthy.

Thu May 1619:40Trea Turner Goes Through More Agility Work
For the second straight day on Thursday, Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Trea Turner (hamstring) went through a full agility workout at Citizens Bank Park while taking ground balls and also hitting inside in the cages. It has only been 13 days since he injured his left hamstring and is progressing at a surprising pace given the original timetable of around six weeks. The 30-year-old All-Star is making fantastic progress, but the Phillies will probably pump the brakes on him returning too soon and aggravating his injury, especially given the nature of Turner's game on the basepaths. However, if Turner continues to progress at this pace, he'll surely beat his projected six-week timetable, which is great news for his fantasy managers. Edmundo Sosa will continue to work as the Phillies' starter at the 6 until Turner returns from his hamstring ailment. Keep Turner stashed in all fantasy formats.

Wed May 1517:19Trea Turner Takes Grounders Wednesday
Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Trea Turner (hamstring) went through agility drills on Wednesday less than two weeks after suffering a left-hamstring strain. He also took ground balls. "There is no timeline," according to manager Rob Thomson. However, The Athletic's Matt Gelb writes that Turner doesn't look like a player that will miss another four weeks. It's a good sign for Turner's fantasy managers, but the Phillies could still slow-play the All-Star shortstop to make sure he doesn't aggravate his hammy when he returns. The 30-year-old needs to be stashed in an injured-list spot in all fantasy formats. In the meantime, Edmundo Sosa should continue to see most of the action at the 6 in Philadelphia. Before his injury, Turner was hitting a cool .343/.392/.460 with an .852 OPS, two home runs, nine RBI and 10 stolen bases in 137 at-bats.

Sat May 417:21Trea Turner Out Six Weeks With Hamstring Strain
The Philadelphia Phillies announced Saturday that shortstop Trea Turner (hamstring) will be put on the 10-day injured list with a left-hamstring strain. The shortstop was quoted as saying he expects to miss six weeks and that it would "be a win" if he returned any earlier than that. Turner was pulled after the bottom of the fourth inning in Friday night's game. Turner had been having a fantastic season, slashing .343/.392/.460 with 10 stolen bases and 27 runs. Edmundo Sosa is starting Saturday night against the San Francisco Giants in Turner's place. Sosa should be expected to be the starter for the next six weeks. Sosa is hitting for an .824 OPS in 21 at-bats this season, above his career norms, and should be on all fantasy managers' radars as a waiver-wire pickup while Turner recovers from injury.

Sat May 413:57Trea Turner Placed On 10-Day Injured List
Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Trea Turner (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured prior to Saturday's game against the San Francisco Giants with a left hamstring strain. The Phillies promoted infielder Kody Clemens from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to fill the roster spot in a corresponding move. Turner was off to another dominant season, posting a .343/.392/.460 line with two long balls and ten stolen bases across 33 games. As a result, the Phillies will look to Edmundo Sosa to play shortstop, as he is the next man on the depth chart for the time being.

Fri May 321:13Trea Turner Leaves Game With Hamstring Soreness
Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Trea Turner (hamstring) was removed from Friday's game early against the San Francisco Giants with left-hamstring soreness. Turner was removed prior to the top of the fifth inning after scoring from second base on a passed ball that resulted in a walk to Bryce Harper in the bottom of the fourth. The 30-year-old was replaced by Edmundo Sosa after going 2-for-3 at the plate and scoring a run. Should Turner be forced to miss any time, Sosa would be the likely starter at shortstop. With just hamstring soreness, Turner should be expected to be day-to-day until the soreness subsides.

Thu Apr 1801:13Trea Turner Extends Hitting Streak To Seven Games
Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Trea Turner extended his hitting streak to seven games as his team held on for a 7-6 win over the Colorado Rockies, going 3-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs scored. Turner went back-to-back with teammate Kyle Schwarber with a long ball as the Phils ambushed Rockies right-hander Ryan Feltner for four runs in the first inning, later doubling to lead off the fifth and scoring a run during the frame. The 32-year-old fantasy superstar is off to a much better start than that of his Philly debut season in 2023, now slashing a potent .329/.386/.487 with two big flies, six RBI, 12 runs scored, and seven stolen bases through 19 outings in 2024 following Wednesday's three-hit attack. Turner looks to stay hot during an upcoming weekend series at home versus the Chicago White Sox. In six games against Chicago since 2022, Turner is hitting .292 with two homers, four RBI, and three thefts across 22 at-bats.
Wed Apr 1009:09Trea Turner Beginning To Warm Up
Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Trea Turner went 2-for-3 with a walk and stolen base in Tuesday's loss against the St. Louis Cardinals. The stolen base would be his fourth on the young season. Turner had a slow first week of the season, but has now hits safely five times over his last eight at-bats. Managers should not have ever worried with Turner and he remains of the best options at the shortstop position and in general with his ability to help all across the board. It also does not hurt that he hits near the top of a good lineup. Turner will bring his .295 batting average into Wednesday's series finale against veteran Lance Lynn.
Sat Mar 2309:26Trea Turner Collects A Hit And A Walk Friday
Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Trea Turner went 1-for-2 with a single and a walk in Friday's 4-3 Grapefruit League loss to the Tigers. The speedster also stole a base, his second of the spring. The veteran is having a solid but unspectacular spring, hitting just .268 (11-for-41) with four doubles, zero home runs, two RBI, one runs scored, and two stolen bases. The 2x All-Star has drawn three walks while striking out ten times. You don't want to put too much stock into spring stats, but Turner got off to a slow start last season so it would be comforting for managers to see him with a little more momentum heading into the season. Nevertheless, the 30-year-old is still a top option at shortstop with his power-speed combo which, like last season, can buoy his fantasy value even if the batting average isn't there.
Tue Feb 2710:48Trea Turner Goes Hitless, Draws A Walk In Spring Debut
Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Trea Turner saw his first game action of the spring on Sunday in a 4-0 Grapefruit League win over the New York Yankees. The 2x All-Star went 0-for-2 with a walk but did not steal a bag or come around to score after getting on base. Last season, Turner got off to a slow start but eventually was able to turn things around during his first season in Philly. The former NL batting champ slashed .247/.299/.389 in the first half with a .297 WOBA and 84 wRC+, but in the second half it was .292/.348/.554 with a .381 WOBA and 140 wRC+, so he'll look to carry that momentum into 2024. Combined with his ability to steal bases, he goes off draft boards late in the first round (NFBC ADP of 12). RotoBaller ranks him at 14, however, if he can outperform his ATC projection of 28 stolen bases (he had 30 in '23), then he could pay off his high price tag.
Wed Oct 4 202312:51Trea Turner Steals Two Bases In Win Over Marlins
Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Trea Turner went 2-for-3 with a walk and two stolen bases in the 4-1 win over the visiting Miami Marlins in Game 1 of the wild-card series on Tuesday night. It was the sixth time Turner has stolen multiple bases in a game this year, and he's now stolen 32 total bases all year in his first year in Philadelphia. The 30-year-old got off to an ice-cold start in the first half but rebounded to finish the regular season with a .266/.320/.459 slash line, 26 home runs, 76 RBI, 30 stolen bases and 102 runs scored in 639 at-bats. Turner will face Marlins left-hander Braxton Garrett in Game 2 on Wednesday night. Turner has gone 2-for-6 against Garrett in his career, with both of hits clearing the fences for solo homers.
