Dodgers News: Corey Seager Will See Action In Minor League Games Soon

Contain your excitement, Dodgers fans. Corey Seager is returning to game action and soon. Furthermore, Dave Roberts said Sunday that Seager will see action in minor league games as part of his ramp-up towards Opening Day.

Equally important – our Brook Smith was there to ask Roberts how Seager is feeling in terms of ramping up the intensity.

Here is what Roberts told Brook before the action at Camelback Ranch on Sunday morning.

“He’s going to continue to be a regular participant as far as practicing. Corey will take some at-bats on the other side. There is some controlled inter-squad camp day games that he will participate in and take those at-bat’s. He will take grounders and continue to run the bases. Right now – where Corey is at – he’s in as good of a spot as we could have hoped. And at some point in time we will get him to complete plays on the defensive side.”

On the heels of a positive report from Ken Gurnick of from a day ago, Seager sounds to be coming along well. Upon throwing from 150 feet, this is what Roberts said yesterday.

“Corey had a good day today,” said Roberts. “He threw out to 150 feet and really let it go, first time on a line. Corey was excited about that. He ran the bases, he took four at-bats and felt good in the batter’s box. Obviously, the timing is not synched up, but for him to go through the progression of playing a game, it was a good day for Corey. It continues to check a box and we continue to move forward.”

As with Clayton Kershaw, recovery of the star shortstop is a careful process. This was never to be an overnight snap of the finger to get Seager back to full-speed. However, one day at a time; Seager is climbing the mountain back to being an everyday player for the Dodgers.

  1. I just want to have Seager in a spring training game, you know field his position(SS), take an at-bat or two and when he leaves the game everything is ok. No “I felt a twinge in my back or leg, hip.” Just when come out of the game healthy!!
