Date:

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Corey Seager's Tommy John surgery was a "success."

The "success" diagnosis actually came from Dr. Neal ElAttrache, who performed the surgery. Seager will miss the rest of the 2018 season after the procedure, but there were no unexpected complications and he should make a full recovery, Roberts said. It seems as though he should be good for the start of the 2019 season.
May 5 - 4:46 PM

Dodgers placed SS Corey Seager on the 10-day disabled list with a right ulnar collateral ligament sprain.

Seager is slated to undergo Tommy John surgery on Friday, which will knock him out for the remainder of the season. He dealt with an elbow injury down the stretch last season and apparently at some point recently his UCL tore. It's obviously a massive blow to the Dodgers and to fantasy owners that invested an early-round pick on the star shortstop. Chris Taylor is starting at shortstop Monday and is expected to become the regular there for the Dodgers moving forward.
Apr 30 - 6:43 PM

Corey Seager is not listed among the starters or reserves on the lineup card that the Dodgers revealed Monday.

Seager missed a game last Friday with tightness in his hip flexor. He returned to play both games of Saturday's doubleheader and Sunday, but it would appear that he suffered a setback. An official announcement should come from the Dodgers soon. Breyvic Valera is expected to replace Seager on the roster.
Apr 30 - 6:21 PM

Corey Seager (hip) returned to the Dodgers' starting lineup on Saturday.

Seager sat out Friday's game with tightness in his hip flexor area, but the issue appears to have been minor. He's batting third against Chris Stratton and the Giants on Saturday.
Apr 28 - 1:34 PM

Corey Seager said Friday that he still feels tightness in his hip flexor area, but that he could have played against the Giants.

It's a good indicator that Seager will be back in the Dodgers' lineup on Saturday. Enrique Hernandez is starting in his place with a left-hander on the hill for the Giants on Friday night.
Apr 27 - 7:55 PM

Corey Seager is not in the Dodgers' starting lineup for Friday's contest against the Giants.

It looks to be just a routine day of rest for the hard-hitting shortstop. Enrique Hernandez is starting in his place and batting third against opposing left-hander Derek Hollad.
Apr 27 - 6:34 PM

Corey Seager is absent from the Dodgers' lineup Monday.

He's getting a day off with the Marlins throwing southpaw Jarlin Garcia. Enrique Hernandez will cover shortstop.
Apr 23 - 6:38 PM

Corey Seager finished Friday's game 0-for-3 with two strikeouts, but he was able to reach base twice after getting hit by pitch.

The two HBP came courtesy of Max Scherzer, who was certainly not doing it intentionally. It was the first time a Dodger has been hit by two pitches in a game since Justin Turner on April 15, 2017. He'll look to get back on track in the hitting department on Saturday, but it won't be easy facing down against Stephen Strasburg.
Apr 21 - 2:21 AM

Corey Seager went 4-for-5 with two doubles, three RBI and a walk in the Dodgers' 13-4 rout of the Padres on Wednesday.

After a slow start, Seager has eight hits and five runs scored during the Dodgers' current four-game winning streak. He's lifted his average from .196 to .254.
Apr 19 - 1:51 AM

Corey Seager belted a solo home run in the bottom of the first inning in Tuesday's game against the Athletics.

Seager followed Chris Taylor with back-to-back jacks to start the game against Sean Manaea and that was all L.A. needed in the 4-0 victory. It was a nice sign, as just eight of his 22 homers in 2017 came against left-handed pitching, and he entered with just 15 of his 52 career homers vs. LHP.
Apr 11 - 1:22 AM

Corey Seager went 2-for-3 with a homer, two RBI, and two runs scored against the Royals on Friday.

His fourth-inning solo shot off Wily Peralta was his third homer of the spring. Seager was eased into action this spring after battling an elbow issue down the stretch last season, but he should be good to go for the start of the season. While he doesn’t touch the elite upside of the likes of Carlos Correa and Francisco Lindor, Seager should be one of the first few shortstops off the board in fantasy drafts
Mar 23 - 8:10 PM

Corey Seager hit his first homer of the spring in a blowout loss to the Royals on Thursday in the Cactus League.

Seager blasted a two-run shot off of struggling Kansas City starter Jason Hammel in the third inning. Seager doesn't have awe-inspiring stats so far in the Cactus League, but the important thing is that he looks healthy, and he's going to be able to play shortstop on Friday. There's a little more risk here than with some of the other elite shortstop options, but there's also plenty of upside.
Mar 15 - 7:17 PM

Corey Seager (elbow) is expected to make his Cactus League debut at shortstop on Friday.

Seager has been limited to DH duties thus far after battling an elbow issue down the stretch last season, but the Dodgers are prepared to take the reins off the 23-year-old star shortstop here in mid-March He should be 100 percent for the opening of the 2018 regular season on March 29. Seager hit .295/.375/.479 with 22 homers and 77 RBI over 145 games in 2017.
Mar 15 - 9:10 AM

Corey Seager told reporters that his right elbow feels good and that he has "no doubt" he'll be ready for Opening Day.

Seager was able to make a couple of throws in a minor league game on Monday, and reportedly had no setbacks afterward. The Dodgers are not going to rush the 23-year-old star, but we could see him appear play the field in a Cactus League game soon. Assuming he's at full health, he'll once again be one of the best shortstops in the National League.
