Dodgers News: Corey Seager Fine After Injury Scare on a Diving Play

The Dodgers landslide victory on Wednesday night did not come without its own drama. Despite the offense breaking out and Mitch White pitching a gem, Dodger fans also had to worry about Corey Seager. 

The Dodgers shortstop landed hard on a dive in the 5th inning while playing on the right side of the diamond. Collin Moran grounded one through the shift and Seager made an attempt to dive to his left and stop it. 

The replay showed that Seager landed very hard on his wrist and he writhed in pain for a moment. Obviously, the Dodgers were worried given that Seager just had a broken bone in his right hand that sidelined him for most of the season. 

But the good news is that he is fine. Dave Roberts confirmed after the game that Seager was feeling okay and did not need further examination. He also stayed in the game and homered in the following inning, so it appears there is no need to worry.
