- In 2021, Turner led the National League (NL) in hits (201) and stolen bases (32) while playing for the Washington Nationals and the Dodgers. He became the first player to lead both categories in the NL since Jackie Robinson in 1949.
- Turner also had a batting average of .328 in 2021, which was the second-best in the NL.
- In 2018, Turner hit for the cycle in a game against the Colorado Rockies. He became the first player in Nationals/Expos franchise history to accomplish this feat.
- Turner has been named an All-Star twice, in 2018 and 2019.
- Turner won a World Series championship with the Dodgers in 2020.
- In 2016, Turner set a record for stolen bases in a single postseason series with 4 steals against the Chicago Cubs in the NLCS.
- Turner also holds the record for the fastest inside-the-park home run in MLB history, with a time of 14.24 seconds. He accomplished this feat in a game against the Philadelphia Phillies in 2018.
Trea Turner was traded from the Washington Nationals to the Los Angeles Dodgers in a multi-player trade that took place on July 30, 2021. The trade was made on the MLB’s trade deadline day.
In exchange for Turner, the Nationals received four players from the Dodgers: infielders Josiah Gray and Michael Busch, catcher Keibert Ruiz, and pitcher Gerardo Carrillo. The trade also involved another Nationals player, pitcher Max Scherzer, who was also sent to the Dodgers in exchange for two more prospects.
The trade was a significant move for both teams. The Dodgers acquired Turner, who is a versatile and talented player that can contribute in many ways to the team’s success.
He immediately became a key player in the Dodgers’ lineup and helped them win the National League West division title and advance to the playoffs.
On the other hand, the Nationals received several promising young players in the trade, including Gray and Ruiz, who are considered to be top prospects in the Dodgers’ farm system. The trade signaled that the Nationals were looking to rebuild their team after a disappointing season and start building for the future.
