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.
Oct 14 - 4:54 PM

Corey Seager (back) is not on the Dodgers' roster for the NLCS.

It's obviously a major blow to the Dodgers to be without one of their top bats and an extremely skilled defender at shortstop. He has been sidelined since tweaking his back on Monday against the Diamondbacks. Charlie Culberson is taking his place on the Dodgers' active roster. The Dodgers will try to get by using a combination of Chris Taylor and Kike Hernandez at shortstop for this series, while Seager would be eligible to return for the World Series should the Dodgers advance.
Oct 14 - 1:33 PM

ESPN's David Schoenfeld reports Corey Seager will not work out on Friday as he continues to recuperate from a sore back.

He tweaked his back on Monday as the Dodgers completed their sweep of the Diamondbacks in Game 3 of the NLDS. He has been avoiding strenuous activity since then. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Seager is questionable for Game 1 of the NLCS against the Cubs on Saturday. He also nursed elbow and ankle injuries late in the regular season and might not be at full strength as the playoffs continue.
Oct 13 - 8:26 PM

Corey Seager didn't work out Thursday after tweaking his back in Game 3 of the NLDS.

It doesn't sound like anything that will keep him out of Saturday's Game 1, but it's worth following. Chris Taylor and Enrique Hernandez are the fallbacks at shortstop.
Oct 12 - 8:01 PM

Corey Seager went 2-for-4 with two RBI and three runs scored in a win over the Diamondbacks on Friday.

He had an RBI single in the fourth inning and topped that by tripling home an insurance run in the eighth. The shortstop also walked in the ballgame. He's been nursing a sore elbow and an ankle injury but looked fine today. The Dodgers will need him healthy and productive if they're going to make a run at a title.
Oct 7 - 2:56 AM

Oct 1 - 7:39 PM

Corey Seager finished 2-for-4 with a three-run home run, a walk and four RBI in Tuesday's victory against the Padres.

Corey Seager (ankle, elbow) is out of the Dodgers' lineup on Thursday afternoon.

Seager has been bothered by right elbow discomfort for over a month and he fouled a ball off his ankle on Wednesday night. He'll probably get multiple days off over this final stretch of the regular season so that he is as healthy as possible leading into the playoffs. Logan Forsythe is starting at shortstop and batting eighth Thursday versus the Phillies.

X-rays on Corey Seager's ankle came back negative on Wednesday.

Seager fouled a ball off of his ankle on Wednesday. He was able to stay in the game, but the Dodgers made sure their star shortstop didn't have any damage. You should consider him day-to-day with the playoffs wrapped up and the division coming shortly.
Sep 20 - 11:41 PM

Corey Seager is in the Dodgers' lineup Tuesday against the Phillies.

Seager got the day off Monday, but he's expected to be in the lineup moving forward. The young shortstop is dealing with a nagging elbow issue which might require surgery in the offseason, but he's going to try to grind through it with the playoffs approaching.
