Player Profile: Turner overhauled his swing and reaped the benefits of a newfound power stroke, crushing a career-high 27 home runs in 2016, but he also played lights-out defense at third, posting the second-best UZR behind only Adrian Beltre. The Dodgers tagged him with a qualifying offer and will likely do their best to retain his services.
