News: Turner agreed to a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Dodgers on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Impact: The Dodgers got well more than their $1 million worth from Turner last season. Not only did he help out at all four infield positions, Turner also had a career year at the plate, slashing .340/.404/.493 with seven homers and 43 RBI in 109 games (322 plate appearances). Sure, his BABIP was abnormally high (.404), and he doesn't have a clear role heading into spring training, but those in deeper NL-only leagues shouldn't write the 30-year-old off completely.
