After being sidelined with a strained oblique since March 4, Corey Seager returned to the field today, playing as the DH in a Minor League game.

Seager went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts at the plate, but all is positive as he came out of it without feeling any pain.

The Dodgers will have an off day on Wednesday so Seager will have a day of rest. On Thursday, Seager plans to play in another Minor League game. This time he will be hitting, as well as playing five innings at shortstop.

Defense looks like it will be the real test for Seager, because that is how the original oblique injury occurred. The Minor League appearance on Thursday should be his last until he moves back up to the Major League side of camp.

The last thing that the Dodgers would want to do is rush back the reigning National League Rookie of the Year too fast in spring training. So it should not be surprising if they ease him back in to the swing of things over the next week.
