Max Muncy has been very vocal about wanting Justin Turner to come back to the Dodgers. In an appearance on SportsNetLA with Alana Rizzo, Muncy said that it would be very strange if Justin Turner wasn't back in LA and that it would be a travesty" if he doesn't finish his career Dodger Blue.
He hasn't been the only one in the Dodgers organization that has pushed for a Justin Turner return. Manager Dave Roberts on a zoom call in December was very open about wanting him back. Here is what he said:
He’s one of the Dodger greats, he really is,” Roberts said in a conference call with reporters on Thursday. “His body of work is really special, unique, but it’s a two-way deal. It’s the organization, the Dodgers, but it’s also Justin and his family, they’ve got to make a decision. But selfishly, I’ll take him for as long as I can have him.”
Turner has been one of the best hitters in baseball since joining the Dodgers in 2014, hitting .302/.382/.503, a 141 wRC+ with 116 home runs and 177 doubles in seven seasons. Turner will be the 36 in November.
