The Dodgers may be getting closer to figuring out what will happen to Justin Turner. Just over a week after he celebrated his world series on the pitch with a positive COVID-19 result, the MLB and the Player’s Association looked like they were about to reach a solution.
The Atheltic’s Ken Rosenthal reports that the federation will make a decision in the coming days. While there is a potential discipline to be expected, its extent is unknown. The matter is further complicated by the fact that Turner is technically a freelance agent and not part of the Dodgers at the moment.
MLB and the Footballer Association are closer to a solution for Justin Turner, sources tell The Athletic. Potential discipline aside, these questions remain: Will Turner experience symptoms? How did Turner get infected inside a supposedly safe bubble? 1/2

Rosenthal continued to wonder if the situation would change Justin Turner’s approach to a freelance company. That seems to be a point of debate as the JT is supposed to resign with the Dodgers. If he gets some form of suspension, I really doubt that would change Los Angeles’ interest in getting him back with a short-term deal.
The good news is we may only be a few days away from hearing this situation end. Turner has dominated the news cycle since the Dodgers won the World Series, and that’s all there has been to say about since. Given that this situation was unprecedented, not many people knew how the union would approach the punishment part.
