Dodgers: Corey Seager Exits the Game With An Injury After HBP



Dodgers fans are always going to worry about injuries in the 2021 season. With the number of guys who have gone down with health issues early on the in the season, it’s been a struggle to field a lineup at full health. 

On Saturday in Los Angeles, things got a little scary again. Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager was hit by a pitch in the hand by Marlins pitcher Ross Detwiler. 

Seager remained down on the ground in pain for several moments. The Dodgers medical staff came out and talked with him before removing him from the game. Sheldon Neuse came on to replace him as a pinch runner. 

If Seager has to miss any time with the injury, it would be a big loss for the Dodgers. Seager has been productive at the plate even if his defense hasn’t been the best.

We’ll have to wait for official updates from the Dodgers on his health. Seager has dealt with a number of injuries over the last few years, but nothing related to his hand before. 

UPDATE

After the game, the team announced that Seager suffered a fracture in his right hand.

In the interim, expect Gavin Lux and Chris Taylor to see time at shortstop.

  1. From the looks of it it doesn’t look good. He was down in pain not even moving the hand or flexing his fingers. This brings back flashbacks of JT, Muncy, and CT3 when they all suffered fractures in that area which is all small bones w/ no meat compounded by gripping the bat. They should look into what Ohtani wears…. it’s almost like armor looking w/ back padding. The Dodgers need a blessing of some kind because somebody has put a voodoo on the team w/ all this bad luck. IMHO.

  2. This has become surreal. The team suffers an injury every game with the worst possible prognosis. to win a championship you need to be good, healthy, and get a little luck; this team has been physically battered without any luck at all.
