How’s everyone’s Saturday night going? Good, good. Well, sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but take a swig of whatever adult beverage you might have in-hand at the moment.
Take a seat, whatever you have to do.
According to Dave Roberts, Corey Seager might have taken a minor step back in the kind of progress we’d like to see.

Dave Roberts clarifies: Corey Seager will be held out of baseball activities for 1-2 weeks. His Opening Day availability is in doubt.

Seager could also open the season on the DL. Roberts: "Once we talk to the doctors, I'll have more clarity on where we are going forward"

So, there’s that.
Look, it’s a really long season and the Dodgers have to hope Seager enjoy a really, really long career. The extra precaution makes sense.
Still, missing a couple weeks, an MRI and Opening Day already being in doubt isn’t exactly the kind of news we’d like to get, especially given the kind of season the Dodgers need from the kid they call “Roy”, acronymed for Rookie of The Year.
This is most definitely something to watch moving forward.
