Injured Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager, who has been on the injured list since early June with a hamstring strain has taken the next step in his recovery.

On Sunday, he hit off a tee at Dodger Stadium, and on Monday, he tested his hamstring by running a straight line. Most importantly, Seager added this.

It doesn’t hurt when I walk anymore so that’s nice.

Originally diagnosed with a “grade 2/3″ strain, it was later upgraded to “grade 1/2.” He was in the middle of a torrid hot streak when the Dodgers lost his services having batted .400 with a 1.189 OPS in his previous 17 games. He also chipped in 10 doubles, 4 home runs, and 18 RBI.

In between the initial injury and this latest update, Corey has also been spotted throwing.

Last Friday, manager Dave Roberts announced that both Seager and injured outfielder AJ Pollock would be heading on rehab assignments some time around the All-Star break.
