The numbers may not be as flashy in the power department, but he’s a true dynamo at the top of the Dodgers lineup.
Few players in the league show off their contact ability, power stroke, speed and strong defense.
And he doesn’t just put the bat on the ball: He also does things after contact, hitting the ball with authority and earning lots of hits.
He reached another great milestone last night.
Last night, Tree Turner recorded a 20-game hit streak for the second time this season. He is the first player since Ichiro in 2001 to have multiple 20-game hit streaks in a single season. Ichiro led the Mariners to 116 that season. Brought the win and won Rookie of the Year and AL MVP,” tweeted ESPN Stats & Info.

Two long hitting streaks in the same year
Imagine how hard it is to get hits in 20 consecutive matches.
Now, see yourself doing it twice in the same season.
It has some amazing hitting ability.
Turner, after last night’s game, is down .309/.350/.505 with 17 home runs and 18 stolen bases.
He is actually one RBI away from tying his career-high with 77 (achieved last year).
Talented Shortstop, Who Came to Los Angeles Max Scherzer Trade with the Washington Nationals last year hasn’t dropped below .300 since 2019, and that year’s score was .298.
He is a sure bet to finish any season among the National League leaders in hits and averages, while also contributing to speed, power and defense.
If that’s not valuable, we don’t know what is.
