Los Angeles Dodgers DFS Notes

Justin Turner (groin) will not be available on Friday against the Mets. Turner was not an option on Thursday in the loss to the Phillies, and won't be available even off the bench on Friday. The question now is whether Turner can return at some point over the weekend. If he can't, a trip to the injured list is more than possible.

New York Mets DFS Notes

Pete Alonso hit a walk-off homer to give the Mets a 5-4 win over the Nationals on Thursday in the second game of a doubleheader. Walk it off, Polar Bear. Alonso blistered a Kyle Finnegan offering in the bottom of the seventh give the Mets the win and a sweep of Thursday's doubleheader. The power-hitting first baseman now has gone deep 25 times, and driven in 65 runs. Alonso also stole his third base of the year, and he picked up two more hits; including his 16th double. The average isn't great, Alonso has had a solid -- if unspectacular -- 2021 season.
