Washington Nationals shortstop Trea Turner is becoming the king of the cycle. On Wednesday, the 28-year-old hit for the cycle in a win over the Tampa Bay Rays. This was the third time he's hit for the cycle, an MLB record shared with only four others.

Unfortunately, Turner jammed his finger while sliding into third base during Wednesday's game. He was initially diagnosed as "day-to-day" with the jammed finger and missed Thursday night's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Nationals manager Dave Martinez provided a full update on Turner's injury following the game.

Trea Turner Injury Update

Martinez explained that his seventh-year shortstop remains day-to-day as he's still dealing with the swelling in his finger. Fortunately, that's the only remaining roadblock to get Turner back on the field. Once the swelling subsides, Martinez expects Turner back in the lineup.

This is welcomed news for Nationals fans. Washington is eager to get Turner back into the starting nine as he's slashing .318/.367/.513 with 14 home runs and 38 RBIs at the top of Washington's lineup.

The Nationals remain just 2.0 games back in the NL East standings with their 40-39 overall record. As it stands, Washington owns the second-best odds (+550) to win the division on FanDuel Sportsbook.
