After several recent rumors indicated that the Los Angeles Dodgers were looking to sign an infielder, the team finally signed free agent Justin Turner to a minor league deal that includes an invite to Spring Training.
Turner joins a corps of potential utility players the Dodgers will be looking at during the spring that includes Dee Gordon, Chone Figgins, Justin Sellers, Brendan Harris and Miguel Rojas. Turner, who has spent most of his career with the New York Mets, will earn a salary of $1 million should he make the roster.
Turner slashed .280/.319/.385 last season in 214 plate appearances. His infield versatility provides the Dodgers with yet another option should Alexander Guerrero not be ready to start as the Opening Day second baseman.
