Los Angeles Dodgers Justin Turner

Turner, who was healthy again earlier this season and was Tampa Bay's most valuable player in the playoffs, is not going to present any problems for the Dodgers. He had a 2. 48 regular-season ERA, but was no longer the reliable strikeout pitcher he was in 2017, when he struck out 187 batters in 149. 1 innings.
