LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Dodgers today placed third baseman Justin Turner on the 10-day disabled list (right hamstring strain) and recalled outfielder Brett Eibner from Triple-A Oklahoma City. 

Eibner, 28, will make his fourth stint with the big league club this season and has gone 3-for-10 (.300) with one homer and two RBI with the Dodgers. In 21 games with the OKC Dodgers, Eibner has hit .258 (17-for-66) with 11 runs, two doubles, a triple, three home runs and 10 RBI. The San Diego, California native, who was acquired by the Dodgers on January 25 from the Oakland Athletics, saw his first big-league action in 2016 with Kansas City and Oakland, combining to hit .193 (36-for-187) with six homers and 22 RBI.

Turner, who recorded his fifth consecutive multi-hit game last night after going 2-for-3 with a run, a walk and a stolen base, left the game with a right hamstring strain while rounding third base in the bottom of the seventh inning. In 39 games with Los Angeles this season, Turner is batting .379 with 18 runs, 13 doubles, one home run and 17 RBI. He currently leads the Major Leagues in batting average, while ranking among the senior circuit in hits (53, T-1st), doubles (T-2nd), on-base percentage (.453, 3rd) and hit by pitches (7, T-4th).
