For the Toronto Blue Jays, one of their key moves this offseason was the signing of veteran designated hitter Justin Turner. Not only does he bring with him a reliable, consistent bat, but also his breadth of major league and postseason experience that he could share with the team. 

As the Jays look forward to the potential Impact their newest addition would provide to the team, apparently Turner will have an impactful addition of his own in the not-so-distant future for his family.

In a recent post on Instagram, the exciting news was announced that Turner’s wife Kourtney is pregnant with their first baby on the way!

So far this spring, Turner has put on full display what was expected of him, as he has batted .296 with an .868 OPS, 2 runs scored, a double, a home run, 6 RBI, 5 walks and 6 strikeouts in 12 games played. In his two games in the field as a first baseman, he has also handled it solidly with a 1.000 fielding percentage in the 13 total chances registered. More importantly, he appears to be in game shape already as the start of the regular season approaches in less than two weeks. No matter what eventual role the Jays have in store for him for the upcoming season, he certainly is more than ready for it.

As Turner prepares for the arrival of the newest member of his family, his new Blue Jays’ family will also hope his newly found motivation will carry over into the 2024 season in helping the team to win and reach the postseason once again for the third consecutive year. In the meantime, we would like to take this special opportunity to congratulate the Turner family and wish them all the best in the coming year as well.
