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.
