Justin Matthew Turner was born on 23 November 1984, in Long Beach, California USA, and is a professional baseball player, best known to play in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a third baseman for the Los Angeles Dodgers. He’s been active in the sport professionally since 2009, and all of his efforts have helped put his net worth to where it is today.
Justin attended Mayfair High School, and during his time there played baseball for the school’s team, mainly as a shortstop and second baseman, earning several honors. As a senior, he helped his team get the league title which also led him to most valuable player honors. After matriculating, he attended California State University where he studied kinesiology, while also playing college baseball for the Titans. During his freshman year, he became the starting second baseman and started to perform very well. He helped his team win the 2004 College World Series.
Justin Turner Net Worth Under Review
In 2005 Turner joined the MLB Draft, and he was selected in the 29th round by the New York Yankees, but he opted not to sign. The following year, he then joined the 2006 Draft, and was selected in the seventh round by the Cincinnati Reds, so his net worth started to increase. He first appeared in the Rookie League affiliate, the Billings Mustangs for which he played in various positions. He was then promoted to the AA Chattanooga within two years, then traded to the Baltimore Orioles and was assigned to the AAA Norfolk the following season. He made his major league debut in 2009, and got his first hit three days after his debut. The following year, he was claimed by the New York Mets after he was waived by the Orioles, and he joined the AAA Buffalo. He was then called back to the major league in 2011, and got his first home run soon after. He then started performing well, gaining impressive stats and being named the NL Rookie of the Month, but he was non-tendered by the Mets after the 2013 season, which made him a free agent.
Justin then signed a minor league contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers after he was discovered by Tim Wallach. He was added to their Major League roster, and had his breakthrough season in 2014, thanks to which he signed a one year contract with the team, which further raised his net worth. He performed well in the 2015 National League Division Series but the Dodgers were soon eliminated. He then had to undergo surgery on his left knee, but in 2016 Justin saw more playing time, and helped the team reach the 2016 National League Championship Series, and this led him to a contract extension for four years, worth $64 million. He started the 2017 strongly, but injured his right hamstring. He was then voted into the 2017 MLB All Star Game, having helped his team reach the 2017 World Series, but they were defeated by the Houston Astros.
For his personal life, Turner’s romantic relationship is that he has been dating Kourtney Elizabeth for some time. He has one younger sister.
