Turner could be back for Braves series

NEW YORK -- Justin Turner is close to being activated off the disabled list, but nothing has been decided just yet.

Turner's been on the DL since June 18 with a strained left intercostal. Before the injury he was hitting .266, with six doubles and six RBIs. Manager Terry Collins said there's a chance Turner will be back for the start of the series against the Braves on Monday.

"There's a possibility he'll be here," Collins said. "I haven't talked to [general manager] Sandy [Alderson] about it. ... Certainly, he'll be here very soon."

Turner went 0-for-2 with a walk on Saturday night while playing for Class A Brooklyn. Over eight rehab games, Turner is hitting .280.
