Turner: Head shot not an issue
New York Mets
Turner was lifted for a pinch runner, but suggested that was planned should he reach base even before the beaning.
"I'm OK. Don't worry about it," Turner said. "... I got up and ran to first. I'm fine. The one that hit me in the elbow hurt more than that, about a week ago."
