Dodgers Corey Seager Taken Out of Padres Game due to Hamstring Tightness

Looks to be Precautionary

After coming off a National League Player of the Week award, the Dodgers have pulled shortstop Corey Seager from the Padres game in the middle of the fourth inning.

So far this season, Seager has been slashing .273/.336/.478 with a 112 wRC+ and 3.1 WAR in a season deemed a recovery season from his off-season elbow and hip injuries. Seager was also hampered by a hamstring injury this past June, but since returning from that injury, continued to slash at an even better rate of .298/.336/.478 with a 134 wRC+ which has been elevated with this past week’s award winning performance of .500/.520/.917 through 25 plate appearances.

The Dodgers have needed his offense and tonight’s precautionary move to take him out of the game is definitely the right move with only four games left in the regular season.

  1. This team is so cursed. I bet Seager ends up being one of those injury prone guys with a “what if” career

      • You’re such a hopeless optimist. Get real for once, everything isn’t hunky dory. These things can linger and he’s already had serious injuries once missing a full year and this year missing over a month and now this. Betcha next year he lands on the DL a couple times too

  2. Folks, i can only say this about Thursday’s lineup against the Padre LHP…
    if Roberts puts this lineup on the field during the playoffs because a LHP is starting….
    no comment really…..
