In return, Los Angeles sent top prospects Keibert Ruiz and Josiah Gray, as well as two other mid-range minor leaguers back to the Nationals, The Athletic reported.
In order for the trade to happen, Scherzer had to waive his no-trade clause.
Earlier in the afternoon Dodgers’ National League West rival San Diego Padres were close to trading for Scherzer, but nothing transpired as the day progressed.
Scherzer, an eight-time All-Star, made his final start for the Nationals on Thursday. He allowed one run over six innings of work in a 3-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies. Over 111 innings pitched this season, Scherzer has a 2.76 ERA with 147 strikeouts.
Turner, on the other hand, is currently on the COVID-19 injured list after he recently tested positive for the coronavirus. In 96 games, Turner, 28, has a slash line of .322/.369/.521 with 18 home runs and 21 stolen bases.
Both Scherzer and Turner will make an immediate impact for the Dodgers moving forward.
