Dodgers injury update: Joc Pederson, Justin Turner & Brandon McCarthy


The Dodgers are without three key assets at the moment, with third baseman Justin Turner, centerfielder Joc Pederson and starting pitcher Brandon McCarthy all sidelined with injuries.

Turner is recovering from a right hamstring strain suffered while attempting to leg out a run against the Giants on May 18, Pederson is out with a concussion that stems from a collision with teammate Yasiel Puig last week and McCarthy exited Saturday's win over the Cubs with a sore right knee.

Below is a glance at the latest injury updates on each player.

Joc Pederson

The 25-year-old will not be with the Dodgers for their upcoming four-game series against the Cardinals. It is possible that Pederson rejoins the team in Milwaukee for a series with the Brewers that begins on Friday, but Dodgers manager Dave Roberts indicates this is unlikely.

Justin Turner

Turner remains day-to-day with his recovery, and does not yet have a date for a rehab start set.

Turner discussed his recovery process with Dodgers broadcaster Rick Monday ahead of Saturday's game -- listen below.

Brandon McCarthy

After receiving positive news from his MRI results, McCarthy is set to return to the mound this week. The veteran starter also revealed that he has dealt with the tendinitis all season long.
