Corey Seager went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's loss to the Rockies.

Seager cracked a two-run home run off Antonio Senzatela in the first inning, his fifth of the season. It was his first since April 27. While the ball has not exactly been flying out of the park for Seager thus far, he has picked up hits of 10 of his last 11 games.

Corey Seager is not in the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

He's just getting a breather. Enrique Hernandez will fill in at shortstop.
Apr 30 - 2:02 PM

Corey Seager is not in the Dodgers' lineup Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

The Dodgers are stacking their lineup with right-handed bats against southpaw Robbie Ray. Enrique Hernandez is starting at shortstop and batting leadoff on Saturday. Seager has had a strong opening month, hitting .308 in the early going with three homers and 14 RBI.
Apr 22 - 5:35 PM

Corey Seager finished 3-for-4 with a homer and three RBI against the Diamondbacks on Friday.

The Dodgers were routed anyway, but Seager upped his average to .308. He has three homers, five doubles and 14 RBI in 17 games.
Apr 22 - 1:29 AM

Corey Seager struck out all four times he was up Monday in the loss to the Diamondbacks.

It's Seager's second career Sombrero; the first one came in a 14-inning game against the Orioles last July. Seager is still off to a solid start at the plate despite missing almost the entire spring; he's hitting .283 with two homers and five doubles in 53 at-bats.
Apr 18 - 1:52 AM

Corey Seager finished 2-for-3 with a double, walk, two runs scored and two RBI in Saturday's win against the Diamondbacks.

Seager has back-to-back multi-hit games and he has hit safely in six in a row. The shortstop also has 10 RBI through his first 12 games. He is a star in the making and he is just starting to scratch the surface. Seager has quelled any concerns by fantasy owners after he missed nearly the entire spring due to an oblique injury.
Apr 16 - 2:42 AM

Corey Seager went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's win over the Rockies.

Seager smashed a two-run dinger off Tyler Anderson in the second inning. That 427-foot shot was his second homer during the opening week. The second-year shortstop is an absolute star in the making and has already turned in three multi-hit efforts in seven games played. He has homered twice, doubled twice and driven in seven runs to date.
Apr 9 - 7:48 PM

Corey Seager is not in the Dodgers' lineup Friday.

Adrian Gonzalez is on the bench, as well, against Rockies left-hander Kyle Freeland. Seager is obviously going to be an everyday guy, so this is just a simple day of rest after he had an abbreviated spring. Gonzalez could sit some against southpaws this season with the Dodgers having so many platoon options. Enrique Hernandez is at shortstop and Scott Van Slyke is handling first base Friday.

Corey Seager reached four times and knocked in two runs Thursday against the Padres.

Seager finished 2-for-3 with a double and a couple of walks. He's 5-for-16 with three extra-base hits and five RBI after missing almost the entire spring.
Apr 6 - 6:44 PM

Corey Seager finished 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in the Dodgers' Opening Day win over the Padres on Monday afternoon in Los Angeles.

Seager wasn't able to see much action in the Cactus League this spring because of an oblique injury and he made a throwing error at shortstop in the top of the first inning, but the 22-year-old rising star looked just fine at the plate. He cranked a three-run shot off Christian Bethancourt in the bottom of the fifth and then singled in the bottom of the seventh as the Dodgers went on to rout the visiting Padres. Seager won National League Rookie of the Year honors in 2016 with a .308/.365/.512 batting line, 26 home runs, 72 RBI, and 105 runs scored in 157 games.
Apr 3 - 7:16 PM

Corey Seager (oblique) will start at shortstop in Saturday's exhibition game against the Angels.

It's Seager's first game action since March 3. The Dodgers have been extremely cautious with their prized shortstop but it looks like they played this perfectly. As long as he makes it out of Saturday's game unscathed, Seager should be ready to roll against the Padres on Opening Day. The reigning NL Rookie of the Year carries a .312 average over 725 big league at-bats.
Apr 1 - 6:56 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Tuesday that Corey Seager (oblique) is expected to start in Saturday's exhibition game against the Angels.

Seager hasn’t played in a major league game since March 3 due to an oblique issue, but he has been getting work on the minor league side in recent days. He's slated to play in another minor league game on Wednesday. The Dodgers have been careful with their prized shortstop, but all signs are pointing to him being ready for the opener.
Mar 29 - 1:26 PM

Corey Seager (oblique) is aiming to join the Dodgers for Saturday's exhibition game in Los Angeles.

Seager will stay back in Dodgers camp to work on his swing in minor league games while the majority of the major league roster heads to Anaheim later this week for two exhibition contests. Once the Freeway Series shifts to Dodger Stadium on Saturday, the star shortstop should be active. He is in no danger of missing the club's first regular-season game April 3 against the Padres.
Mar 27 - 1:17 PM

Corey Seager (oblique) could be held out of the exhibition Freeway Series with the Angels this weekend in order to get more at-bats in minor league games.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts was quick to point out that it would have nothing to do with Seager's health but it simply a way for him to get more at-bats in order to knock the rust off. "He just needs to get his timing," Roberts said. Seager has been limited to just five Cactus League at-bats due to an oblique injury. The good news is that his oblique ailment seems like a non-issue at this point. Seager is fully expected to be ready on Opening Day.
