The reigning National League champion Dodgers are going to be without their red-headed slugger on opening day, and possibly for a while after.

The 33-year-old Turner caught an inside fastball to his left wrist Monday night in the Dodgers 3-1 spring training win over the Athletics.

Third baseman Justin Turner suffered a non-displaced fracture of his left wrist when he was hit by a pitch from A's pitcher Kendall Graveman during the teams' exhibition in Arizona.

Donovan Solano served as Turner's pinch runner, and Solano took over at third base when the Dodgers went into the field. He also led the team and finished third in the majors by getting plunked 19 times.

"We know that it's not a surgery thing, it's just essentially time", Roberts said. The timetable for his return is about six-to-nine weeks, meaning he would be eligible to return sometime in May. Turner says he'll visit the doctor again Tuesday to hopefully learn more. Currently, manager Dave Roberts plans on sliding starting 2nd baseman Logan Forsyth into Turner's 3rd base corner while platooning veteran Chase Utley and Enrique Hernandez at the keystone. "There are guys who can move around". Turner's power numbers dropped a bit last season, hitting 7 home runs less and nearly 20 less RBI, but his OPB was a career-high.415. In that series, which the Dodgers won in five games, Turner hit.333 with two home runs and seven runs batted in.
