Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager who has been recovering from a broken finger made a huge lunge forward in his recovery. Seager was among a pair of injured Dodgers who took live batting practice with the team ahead of Friday night’s game in Arizona.
Moreover, Dave Roberts spoke on Corey’s progress and what’s next for the World Series MVP before he makes his return to the active roster.
[Corey was] out there today with our guys doing the whole pregame … he’s checked the boxes. [Next] it’s more of the simulated stuff and for him to go out early next week is our hope. And let him and the hitting guys figure out where he is timing wise and get him back.
Seager has been on the injured list since mid-May with a fractured bone on his right hand. Despite the injury, he’s been able to keep relevant and participate in most baseball activities aside from hitting. That is up until now.
Roberts mentioned a 7 game minor league rehab assignment being likely for the free-agent-to-be, but in all likelihood Seager will look to cut that time in half.
