Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager (hamstring) has resumed playing catch in his recovery from a strained left hamstring. Seager continues to be held back by injuries, but he was starting to pick it up offensively after a slow start before he landed on the injured list. The 25-year-old is batting .278/.359/.468 overall with eight home runs, 40 runs, 38 RBI and a steal in 237 at-bats. In a loaded Dodgers lineup, Seager has fantasy value in most leagues when he's healthy and he could have a much better second half if he can stay on the field. He should be able to return to the lineup at some point in the middle of July.
Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager (hamstring) has been placed on the 10-day injured list. The MRI results showed a Grade 1-2, so Seager could be looking at some significant time on the sidelines. Chris Taylor will cover shortstop and bat fifth versus lefty Jon Lester on Thursday. Taylor should take over a majority of the playing time at shortstop, but doesn't have enough upside with the bat to warrant owning in most leagues.
Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager is headed to the 10-day injured list after pulling up lame in Tuesday night's game. While running the bases and trying to score, Seager came up limping around third, and the initial diagnosis is a Grade 2-plus hamstring strain. With a Grade-3 being the most severe, this will undoubtedly keep him out of action for several weeks, and Chris Taylor is expected to handle the bulk of the duties at shortstop in the meantime. It's a huge blow after Seager missed almost the entirety of 2018 and was hitting a cool .278 with eight homers and 38 RBI this season in his triumphant return. The Dodgers should pass along a firmer timetable for his recovery in the next day or two, and owners should look for a long-term replacement.
