Nationals shortstop Trea Turner had an interesting night on Tuesday.  He was both praised for his hustle and benched for his lack of hustle. 

The Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association awarded Turner the Nationals 2018 Heart and Hustle Award winner, via NBC Sports:

The award – voted on by former players – is given to active players who demonstrate a passion for the game and embody the spirit, traditions and values of baseball. One player from each Major League team is awarded the title.

Turner was also benched on Tuesday night for an odd play, where he bunted a ball back to the pitcher and instead of running it out he took his helmet and batting gloves off.

It’s probably not very difficult to win the award as a member of the Nationals.  They consistently don’t meet anyone’s expectations and their best player has almost not hustle left after they told him to tone down his aggressive play.
