Locked On Dodgers: Goodbye Justin Turner, Hello JD Martinez — the End of an Era for the Los Angeles Dodgers

Click here to listen

On Saturday, the Dodgers signed designated hitter JD Martinez, which made it seem less likely that Justin Turner would be back. On Sunday, that sad fact became official as Turner signed with the Red Sox on a two-year deal. Jeff is here to talk about the heartbreaking reality that the captain will be wearing a different uniform next season. We also talk about Martinez and the fact that he’s probably an offensive upgrade over Turner, what it might mean for guys like Will Smith that the DH Day Off isn’t an option anymore, and other implications of the Martinez signing. And finally, we talk about the Dodgers signing Bradley Zimmer to a minor-league deal, Dansby Swanson signing with the Cubs, and a few other odds and ends.
