He arrived from the Washington Nationals along with Max Scherzer.
So far, he’s been a pretty solid addition.
But that doesn’t mean that some struggles won’t take place from time to time.
In fact, lately, Turner has experienced somewhat of a power outage.
He’s been struggling quite a bit since August 5, as pointed out by Dodgers insider Blake Harris on Twitter.
Since that time, Turner only has six extra-base hits.
On top of that, he hasn’t hit a home run in that stretch.
Only 6 XBH’s for Trea Turner since August 5 with zero home runs

Turner’s Power Shortage
This shouldn’t be too big of a concern for the Dodgers.
Turner is still one of the best run producers in the game.
The 29-year-old is also hitting .306 with 18 home runs and 86 RBI and still has an .829 OPS.
But this recent stretch has not been good for him.
In fact, in his last seven games, he’s hitting just .233.
Again, it’s not a major concern for the Dodgers, but Turner is in a bit of a funk here.
He only picked up one hit in the Dodgers’ recent series against the New York Mets, a series in which the Dodgers lost two out of three at Citi Field.
The power numbers are noticeably down and he’s not getting on base as much as he normally does.
The ebbs and flows of a baseball season are tough to handle for anybody, even a guy like Turner.
As they always say, this game will get you from time to time.
Turner just happens to be in a little bit of a rut right now.
