SCLN: Jorge Soler returns to Braves and Justin Turner leaves Dodgers

LOS ANGELES – The Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers made moves to their rosters ahead of Game 5 of the National League Championship Series Thursday at Dodger Stadium.

The Major League Baseball (MLB) commissioner’s office authorized the return of Cuban outfielder Jorge Soler to the Atlanta roster, after complying with the coronavirus protocol. Soler will be available to come off the bench immediately.

Also, the major leagues approved the Dodgers to replace injured third baseman Justin Turner with utility Andy Burns. Due to postseason rules, Turner automatically misses the next series, so he wouldn’t be available if Los Angeles advances to the World Series.

Turner was injured with a hamstring in the seventh inning of Game 4, which Atlanta won 9-2 to take a 3-1 lead over Los Angeles for the second consecutive postseason.
