Finally, the time has come. Indeed, Corey Seager will play real baseball tomorrow. Now, it’s not time to get completely overboard excited. While Seager took a few at-bat’s Wednesday against Walker Buehler in a ‘stand-in’ atmosphere, on Thursday he’s slated for a little more activity.
Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports that Seager will play defense in a minor league game at Spring Training.

Recently, Seager was sidelined with a brief illness that had him out of camp for a few days entirely. Still, this news is in the wake of the report that the Dodgers expect Seager to be fully ready for Opening Day on March 28.

Equally important will be the news that emerges after Seager’s activity on Thursday. Within a few days, Seager should resume playing in games on both sides of the action. Following that, it’s fair to expect him to be inserted into the regular lineup with his teammates a few times before the regular season gets underway.
Obviously, we’re all keeping our fingers crossed for Corey. This is an important step in the grand process, and one we have been waiting on for quite some time.
We will have more on Seager’s hopefully triumphant return to Dodgers baseball each day until he’s fully back to being one of the best shortstops in all of baseball night over night.
