Dodgers: Corey Seager Stays Loose During Recovery from Injury

It may not be much, but it’s good to see the shortstop doing some baseball activities.

LOS ANGELES, CA - MAY 08: Corey Seager #5 of the Los Angeles Dodgers bobbles a ground ball by Johan Camargo #17 of the Atlanta Braves in the eighth inning of a MLB baseball game at Dodger Stadium on Wednesday, May 8, 2019 in Los Angeles, California.

Injured Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager has been out since Tuesday, June 11 with a grade 1/2 hamstring strain. There hasn’t been much of an update since the day he officially hit the IL, on Thursday the 13th.

With that, Ken Gurnick’s unassuming update on Seager was something of breath of fresh air.

It may not be much, but Corey progressing to playing a little catch again is nice sign that the initial diagnosis of a “grade 2+” strain may have been a bit overblown.

The expectation is that the 25 year old will be out of action for at least as he undergoes treatment before going on a rehab assignment for 3-5 games.

Even in his absence, he remains the third leading vote getter at shortstop for the All-Star Game’s National League squad.

Even if he were to miraculously return to the Dodgers’ active roster in time to play in the All-Star Game, manager Dave Roberts would likely shut down any chances of him playing.
