Dodgers GM Farhan Zaidi confirmed Tuesday that Corey Seager will not require surgery on his right elbow.
Seager battled right elbow problems down the stretch in 2017 and at one point indicated that an offseason procedure might be necessary, but his rehab has been going smoothly and he's expected to be 100 percent by the beginning of spring training in February. The young shortstop slashed .295/.375/.479 with 22 homers and 77 RBI over 145 regular-season games this past year for the National League champs. Dec 12 - 5:00 PM

Dodgers president Andrew Friedman said Tuesday that the club is hopeful Corey Seager's elbow will heal without surgery.

Seager missed some time down the stretch with a sore right elbow and even hinted in early September that offseason surgery could be necessary. The Dodgers have been vague about the exact nature of the issue, but all indications point to it being a somewhat minor (or at least temporary) thing. Seager also dealt with back and ankle injuries this year while batting .295/.375/.479 with 22 homers and 77 RBI over 145 games.

Corey Seager hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the sixth inning to give the Dodgers a 3-1 lead, but the Astros came back to win 7-6 in extra-innings of Game 2 of the World Series on Wednesday.

For about an hour and a half, give or take, it looked like Seager was going to be the hero of this one. His homer came off of Justin Verlander, and he knew it was a bomb the moment he hit it. Unfortunately for Seager and the Dodgers, the bullpen wasn't up to it's usually dominant self. Even in the loss, it's great to see one of the best young hitters in baseball come up big. Seager will likely be the DH on Friday in Game 3 in Houston.

Corey Seager (back) will hit sixth in Game 1 of the World Series against the Astros on Tuesday.

Seager was the primary No. 2 hitter during the regular season and the NLDS, but Dodgers manager Dave Roberts has decided to make a change as his shortstop returns from a back injury. Roberts is essentially sticking with what worked during the NLCS, though Enrique Hernandez will move up to hit fifth against lefty Dallas Keuchel following his power explosion in Game 5 versus the Cubs. The full lineup: Chris Taylor CF, Justin Turner 3B, Cody Bellinger 1B, Yasiel Puig RF, Enrique Hernandez LF, Corey Seager SS, Logan Forsythe 2B, Austin Barnes C, Clayton Kershaw SP.
Oct 24 - 3:53 PM

Corey Seager (back) is officially active for the World Series against the Astros.

As expected, Seager has returned after sitting out the NLCS with a sprained lower back. While the Dodgers are confident that Seager is healed, Charlie Culberson will remain on the roster for the World Series as insurance. This could give the Dodgers the option to have Seager serve as the designated hitter when the series shifts to Houston.
Oct 24 - 1:38 PM

Corey Seager (back) said Monday that he's "good to go" for the World Series.

Seager missed the NLCS with a sprained lower back, but he's been working out the last few days and went through a simulated game Monday to clear the way for his return to action. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts on Sunday left open the possibility of using Seager in the designated hitter spot for the games in Houston, but the important thing is they'll get his bat back in the lineup for the Fall Classic.
Oct 23 - 6:23 PM

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Corey Seager (back) will be included on the Dodgers' World Series roster.

The Dodgers won't officially release their roster until Tuesday, but all signs have been pointing to Seager being on it and Heyman says that will be the case. Seager missed the NLCS with a sprained lower back, but he's been working out the last few days and went through a simulated game Monday without any apparent issues. Manager Dave Roberts has said that it's possible he'll use Seager in the designated hitter spot for the games played in Houston as a way to take it easy on the infielder's back. Obviously, getting Seager's bat back in the lineup is a huge boost for the Dodgers.
Oct 23 - 5:10 PM

Dodgers' skipper Dave Roberts said Sunday that he's confident Corey Seager (back) will be on the club's World Series roster.

Seager was a full participant in the team's workout on Sunday and is set to play in a simulated game on Monday. It's looking like a foregone conclusion that he'll be included on the roster, though it's not a certainty that he'll be in the lineup for Game 1.
Oct 22 - 9:00 PM

Corey Seager will test his injured back by playing in a simulated game on Monday.

The Dodgers have yet to make a decision on Seager's availability for Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday, but they're very optimistic. He has steadily improved since missing the entire NLCS with a back strain, and has been hitting off of a tee and taking soft toss in recent days.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Corey Seager (back) is progressing, but his availability for Game 1 of the World Series is still uncertain.

Roberts said Seager has been hitting off a tee and taking some soft toss, and running curves in the infield, but no determination has been made. The next step for Seager is live at-bats in a simulated game. Given the stakes, it's hard to imagine the shortstop won't be out there if at all possible when the Series starts next week.
Oct 21 - 8:05 PM

The Dodgers expect Corey Seager to be ready to go in Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday.

Seager didn't play in the NLCS because of a back strain. His return could push Charlie Culberson off the roster, even though Culberson played well in the NLCS. An alternative would be to drop Joc Pederson, since Chris Taylor is likely to go back to playing center field anyway.
Oct 20 - 12:52 AM

Corey Seager (back) worked out in the weight room on Tuesday.

And he might begin playing catch on Wednesday. Seager was left off the Dodgers' roster for the National League Championship Series, but the young shortstop is aiming to return for the World Series if Los Angeles can finish off the Cubs and advance. He injured his back in Game 3 of the NLDS against the Diamondbacks.
Oct 17 - 7:54 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Monday that Corey Seager (back) won't travel with the team to Chicago.

Seager was left off the Dodgers' roster for the NLCS, but Roberts said he's feeling "continuing improvement" in his back. The star shortstop hasn't done any real baseball activities since receiving the epidural in his back, but he still has a chance to be active if the Dodgers advance to the World Series.
Oct 16 - 3:18 PM

According to Ken Gurnick of, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Sunday that Corey Seager (back) feels "considerably better."

The Dodgers caught many off guard when they left Seager off their NLCS roster due to a sprained lower back, but he now says he's feeling "normal-ish" after receiving an epidural injection from Dr. Robert Watkins. There are no current plans for him to travel with the team, though Roberts indicated that things could change. It's possible he'll do some baseball activities as soon as Monday. Seager would only be eligible to be added to the NLCS roster if there's an injury, but it sounds like he could be an option if the Dodgers advance to the World Series.
Oct 16 - 8:34 AM

Corey Seager (back) is being considered "day to day" by the Dodgers.

Well we already know he'll be out a handful of days, at least, after he was left off the Dodgers' roster for the National League Championship Series against the Cubs. Los Angeles Times reporter Andy McCullough said Seager was given an epidural in his lower back to combat the pain he's been feeling since tweaking his back last Monday. If the Dodgers are able to advance without Seager's services, it's hard to imagine we won't see him on their World Series roster in some form.
