NL West Team Has Justin Turner "Atop Their Wish List"

The Arizona Diamondbacks have shown a significant interest in signing Justin Turner this offseason, with reports indicating that he is at the top of their wish list.

According to MLB insider Bob Nightengale of USA Today, the Diamondbacks, who are in dire need of a third baseman, are planning to pursue Turner, who recently opted out of his contract with the Boston Red Sox​.

The Diamondbacks' interest in Turner aligns with their need for experienced players, especially after their recent appearance in the World Series.

They are looking for veteran leadership in the locker room, and Turner, with his impressive track record, fits the bill.

In his recent stint with the Red Sox, Turner demonstrated his continued prowess as a player, hitting .276 with 23 home runs and 96 runs batted in, alongside an OPS of .800.

These statistics underscore his ability to perform at a high level despite his advancing age​.

This move by the Diamondbacks, if it materializes, would mark a significant addition to their roster, potentially boosting their competitiveness in the league.
