Here’s a Trea Turner update, courtesy of Corey Seidman of NBCSP:

Turner on Saturday took ground balls, hit in the cage and ran on a soccer field outside London Stadium because the Phillies wanted him to run on grass rather than turf.

Turner will continue his ramp-up process in Boston but Phils manager Rob Thomson did not offer a date for his return.

Thomson did say, though, that Turner may not go on a rehab assignment.

The Phillies would probably feel more comfortable if he went on one after missing over a month, but Turner has the right to refuse it. When asked if he thought Turner would opt against a rehab assignment, Thomson smiled and said, “I would think.”

The Phillies were 22-11 when Turner suffered the injury and have gone 22-8 since.

Edmundo Sosa has started 25 games over that span and hit .296/.360/.556 with four doubles, four triples, three home runs and 14 RBI.

He started again at shortstop Saturday against Mets lefty Sean Manaea.

Phillies in Saturday’s lineup were a collective 18-for-45 off Manaea, hitting .400 with five doubles, five homers and a triple.
