Turner underwent microfracture knee surgery last off-season, which led to a slow start to his 2016 campaign. He heated up as the summer season came along, as he was tied for third with 69 RBIs, fifth with a .577 slugging percentage, and sixth with 22 home runs from June 13th-on.
His performance in the final 91 games led to him putting up career numbers. Turner finished with career highs of 153 hits, 79 runs, 34 doubles, three triples, and 26 home runs. He ended up playing in 151 games, despite manager Dave Roberts wanting to reduce his playing time due to the surgery.
Turner's success spilled over into the postseason, posting a .457 on-base percentage and a .514 slugging percentage in 11 games. He drove in eight and hit two home runs while extending his postseason on-base streak to 15 games. That streak ended in the final game of the NLCS against the Cubs.
Turner has a .296 average in three seasons with the Dodgers, hitting 50 of his 58 career home runs with them. He seems to be a good fit out west, and looks to continue to prove this contract is well worth the money.
