Three of those playmakers were put together to make up TEAM USA in the World Baseball Classic. Trea Turner has been trio’d with Kyle Schwarber and J.T. Realmuto to represent Philadelphia. Turner has been lights out all tournament, giving Philly fans a preview of what to expect in the upcoming season. With USA down two runs in the 8th inning, Turner hit a grand slam to put the USA ahead in the final moments of the game.

Turner has produced a stat line of .368/.429/1.000 with four home runs and 10 RBIs. He leads the league in homers and is tied for the top spot in RBIs. He also is the second player in WBC history to have a multi-homerun game. The only other person to do it? His batting coach Ken Griffey Jr.
