Corey Seager sat out his second straight game on Sunday with minor back discomfort, according to Dave Roberts.
Seager was injured Friday on a throw, according to Roberts. Roberts said he is expected to continue normal activities by Tuesday.
Seager said the awkward throw caused his discomfort. "Not serious," he said.

It’s not the first injury of Seager’s spring training. He missed a trio of games after taking a foul ball to the shin. Seager is one of the favorites for MVP, and while the injuries are minor, the Dodgers’ priority remains keeping him healthy for Opening Day.

As Ken Gurnick of MLB.com noted, Seager missed two weeks last spring training and still had an All-Star season. As long as Seager can hit and run, the Dodgers will be in good shape.
