Giants Reportedly Express Preliminary Interest in Turner

Tuesday, Nov. 8

According to Morosi, the San Francisco Giants are "open-minded" in their pursuit of Turner. 

The Giants opted for a platoon at third base throughout the 2016 season, but the stats weren't particularly encouraging. 

San Francisco third basemen ranked 18th in Major League Baseball with a cumulative batting average of .266. In that same vein, their .320 on-base percentage graded out 22nd overall among all teams. Hot-corner patrolmen for the Giants also combined to hit 12 home runs and tally 61 RBI. 


Turner Has Posted Consecutive Strong Seasons for Dodgers 

Over the course of 151 games, Turner posted a slash line of .275/.339/.493 with a career-best 27 home runs and 90 RBI. Those numbers came on the heels of a .340 batting average in 2014 and a .294 average with a .370 on-base percentage a year ago.
