Justin Turner Breaks Wrist Will Miss Dodgers Opening Day

This is probably the best-case scenario for Turner, who was diagnosed with a broken wrist after being hit by a pitch in Monday's Cactus League contest.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts announced the injury on the team's television network after L.A. wrapped up a 3-1 win over the A's. However, Roberts did not give a timeline for Turner's absence or expected return to the diamond. Last season Turner led Los Angeles in getting hit by pitches with 19.

Opening day for the Dodgers is only 10 days away and it appears more than likely that the team will have to move Logan Forsythe over to third while Turner is out, and put Chase Utley or another player into second base in place of Forsythe. He was also the NLCS MVP after hitting.333 with two home runs and seven RBIs in 18 at-bats.

numberFire's models project Turner to bat.283 while notching 21 home runs, 75 runs scored and 78 RBI over 583 plate appearances this season. And none were as cute or heartfelt as a 2-year-old Dodgers fan who just wanted to help out the healing process with a kiss to Turner's "boo boo".

Currently, the Dodgers are looking to improve upon their extraordinary season past year in which they maintained a record of 104-58. Now, without Turner for the first few weeks of the season, other players will have to step up, step in or otherwise pick up the pace if they want to scratch the surface of that mark this season.

Other fans were a bit more upset on Twitter.
