Baker praises 10-day DL change after Nats shelve Turner

Sep 27 2016 Washington DC USA Washington Nationals second baseman Stephen Drew makes a throw to first base on a all hit by Arizona Diamondbacks second baseman Jean Segura in the seventh inning at Nationals Park. The Nationals won

Nationals manager Dusty Baker didn't sound too concerned about Trea Turner's hamstring tweak, which forced him from last Saturday's game. Mark Zuckerman of tweets a similar sentiment, noting that Baker said MLB's shift to a 10-day minimum stint on the disabled list contributed to the move; the team may not have wanted to wait 15 days, Zuckerman writes, but the 10-day term was more manageable.

Changes to the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) between Major League Baseball and the Players Association now allow for 10-day DL stints as an alternative to the traditional 15 days.

Per ESPN.com, Turner was taken out of the game in the first inning after advancing to third on a flyout when he appeared to favor his leg.


Washington made the move retroactive to Sunday ahead of its series opener Monday against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Turner was replaced on the 25-man roster by outfielder Michael A. Taylor, who was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse. Last season, across his 73 regular season appearances, he posted a.342 batting average with 13 home runs, 40 RBI and a.370 on-base percentage.

"I can't rush back". He's opened the 2017 season going 3-for-19 (.158) with three stolen bases in five games. "So I think it's probably good for me, because I definitely would try to talk my way back in early".
