Trea Turner 2024 Profile
Although he keeps a quiet profile, Trea Turner — the 6 foot 2, 185 pound shortstop for the Philadelphia Phillies — has blossomed into one of the MLB’s most popular players. Touted for his blend of speed, athleticism, and grace at the shortstop position, Trea Turner’s insanely smooth slides when baserunning went viral across social media multiple times in the 2023 season alone. And considering Turner’s skinny frame, the power he swings the bat with always surprised those who haven’t seen him perform before; all of which is to say that Trea Turner is one of the most well-rounded players in baseball, and is more than deserving of the massive contract that the Phillies gave him back in 2022.

Trea Turner Background
Trea Turner attended high school at Park Vista Community High School in Lake Worth Florida. Despite being lightly recruited by Division 1 schools, Turner was drafted in the 20th round (602nd overall) by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 2011 MLB Draft (while Turner was still in high school). Yet, Turner instead decided to play college baseball at North Carolina State University.
As a freshman at NC State in 2012, Turner hit .336 with a .432 on-base percentage, and stole 57 bases. He was named to the 2012 ACC All-Tournament team at season’s end.
In 2013, Turner had a .378 batting average with 7 home runs, 41 RBIs, and 27 stolen bases. He was named to the All-ACC first team, was a second team All-American, and was a finalist for the Brooke Wallace Award, which is given to the best shortstop in NCAA Division 1 baseball.
As a junior in 2014, he hit .321 with 8 home runs and 26 stolen bases. After the season, he was named the winner of the Brooks Wallace Award.
Turner declared for the 2015 MLB Draft after his junior season at NC State. And on June 5, 2014, Turner was drafted with the 13th overall pick in the 2014 MLB Draft by the San Diego Padres.
Turner played 72 games in his first season of professional baseball, and batted .369 in 46 games with the Padres’ High-A affiliated team. Then, on December 19, 2014, Turner was traded to the Washington Nationals.
When Turner joined the Nationals organization in June 2015, he was sent to play for Washington’s Double-A affiliate. After 10 games there, Turner was promoted to their Triple-A affiliate. Then, on August 21, 2015, the Nationals promoted Trea Turner to the MLB.
Turner’s MLB Career So Far
Trea Turner made his MLB debut on August 21. It took him 9 at-bats before recording his first hit. He finished that 2015 season with a .225 batting average through 40 at-bats with 1 home run.
Because Turner barely played in 2015, the 2016 season was technically considered his official Rookie year. Yet, Turner began the season with the Nationals’ Triple-A affiliate, and wasn’t called up to the MLB roster for good until July 26.
Turner took off from there, He won the National League’s Rookie of the Month Award for August 2016, after hitting .357 on the month with 5 home runs and 11 stolen bases.
By season’s end, Turner hit .342 with 13 home runs in 307 at-bats; which was enough for him to finish second in NL Rookie of the Year Award voting (despite being in the MLB for less than half of the season).
Turner was the Nationals’ starting shortstop at the beginning of the 2017 season, and hit for the cycle on April 25. Unfortunately, Turner’s 2017 season was marred by injuries, which included a broken wrist after being hit by a pitch that cost him about 2 months of the season. By the end of 2017, Turner hit .284 with 11 home runs and 45 RBIs and 46 stolen bases in 98 games (412 at-bats).
Once again, Turner made massive strides in the 2018 season; finishing the year having played in every single regular season game (which is the only time he’s ever done so), and producing an NL-leading 43 stolen bases. He hit .271 with 19 home runs on the year, as well.
After missing nearly 2 months with a broken finger (which he got surgery for once the season ended), Turner finished the 2019 season hitting .298 with 19 home runs and 35 stolen bases (2nd most in the NL).
The Washington Nationals also made the playoffs in 2019, and eventually won the 2019 MLB World Series over the Houston Astros; marking for first World Series victory of Trea Turner’s career. Turner hit .233 in those 2019 playoffs.
In 2020, Turner batted .335 with 12 home runs in 59 games during the shortened, 60-game season. He also led the NL in hits, with 78, and finished 7th in NL MVP voting.
In 2021, Turner broke the MLB record for most career cycles, with 3. And on July 30, 2021, Turner was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Turner finished the 2021 season leading the majors with a .328 batting average and 195 base hits; his second consecutive season leading the major leagues in hits. He had 32 stolen bases as well, which was the most in the NL. Turner also made his first ever All-Star team in 2021. Yet, he struggled in the playoffs, hitting .216 while the Dodgers lost in the NLCS.
Turned produced an excellent 2022 season with the Dodgers; hitting .298 with 21 home runs, 100 RBI, and 27 stolen bases. He also led the league in plate appearances (708) at-bats (652), and was the National League’s starting shortstop for the 2022 All-Star Game. He hit .333 in the playoffs, but the Dodgers lost in the NLDS.
After signing the with the Philadelphia Phillies at the end of 2022, Turner’s 2023 season started poorly, as he hit .235 with 10 home runs and 34 RBIs in 107 games through August 3. Ultimately, Turner turned it around, finishing the 2023 regular season hitting .266 with 26 home runs, 76 RBs, and 30 stolen bases. In 13 playoff games, Turner hit .347 with 3 home runs and 4 stolen bases. The Phillies lost in the NLCS.
Turned has also produced an excellent international career, playing for Team USA. In the 2023 World Baseball Classic, Turner hit a game winning grand slam in the quarterfinals. Turner’s 5 home runs tied the World Baseball Classic home run record, and he was named to the All-Classic Team.
Trea Turner 2024 Season Forecast
Trea Turner will continue to be one of the MLB’s best shortstops in 2024. Ideally, he will start the 2024 season better than he did in 2023, and overall will hope to hit with more consistency than he has in the past. Yet, Turner has always been a streaky hitter, so that’s unlikely to change.
Regardless of how Turner hits, Phillies fans can rest easy knowing that his elite defense and baserunning acumen will continue to help them win games. Yet, if they want to realize their World Series dreams, Turner may need to reproduce the sort of postseason he had in 2023.
