Trea Turner had an early exit from the Dodgers' day game against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

Turner left the game after being hit by a Miguel Vargas throw from left field in the lower neck, upper back area.

Turner was slow to get up, and stayed in for the remainder of the 5th, before being replaced by Hanser Alberto in the 6th.
