Dodgers News: Corey Seager and AJ Pollock Bat in Simulated Game

Seager and Pollock are on the road to recovery.

According to Ken Gurnick, both Corey Seager and AJ Pollock are participating in a simulated game in an effort to rejoin the team in the coming days.

The Dodgers have missed Corey Seager at shortstop during his injury stint and have missed the right-handed bat of AJ Pollock to help balance out the lineup.

It is good to hear that they are on the verge of returns along with the injured David Freese, who was reportedly running the bases earlier today.

Seager was in the midst of a hot streak before he went down with the injury, posting a 119 wRC+ on the season overall after a very uncharacteristic rough start from Seager.

Pollock has missed a large chunk of the season and was conversely struggling prior to his injury, posting a 64 wRC+ in 115 plate appearances, mixing in some lackluster defense in center field.

Both players are anticipating a post-All-Star break return to the active roster.

  1. Both will be welcome back! Curious situation with our rookies doing an outstanding job filling in. I would hope Beatty stays up. But with Freese on the way, too, may not be possible for now.
