Emmanuel Burriss off to Washington

dodgers_logo.jpgGood morning! Little in the way of Phils news, so let’s check out the rest of the league:

TURN, TURN, TURN: The Dodgers brought back infielder Justin Turner on a four-year, $64 million contract. Turner, 32, hit .275/.339/.493 last season with 27 home runs and 90 runs batted in. Since joining the Dodgers – and becoming more of a full-time player – Turner is hitting . 296/.364/.492.

JANSPORT: And the Dodgers also signed reliever Kenley Jansen to a five-year, $80 million deal. Jansen, 29, put up a 1.83 ERA with 104 strikeouts in just 68.2 innings last year for Los Angeles. He has saved a career 189 games since debuting for the Dodgers in 2010.

MAN DOWN: The Nationals raided the Phils’ old clothes and grabbed Emmanuel Burriss on a minor-league contract. Burriss spent 2016 with the Phillies, hitting .111/.184/.178 in 50 major league plate appearances. In Lehigh Valley he went .263/.296/.309.
