Corey Seager Makes Dodgers’ World Series Roster After Missing NLCS

Published

on

After missing the entire NLCS with a lower back sprain, Los Angeles Dodgers’ shortstop Corey Seager is returning for the World Series against the Houston Astros.

Seager suffered the injury on a routine slide in the first inning of Game 3’s NLDS clincher against the Arizona Diamondbacks, but played the remainder of the game to conclude a 6 for 21 effort in the first round sweep.

“It was a very normal slide,” said Seager. “I watched it over and over again to see if I landed awkward, hit awkward. I mean, it was extremely normal. I felt it on the slide right away. Really wasn’t kind of sure what it was.”

The 23-year-old received an epidural injection by Dr. Robert Watkins on October 10- the day following the Dodgers’ NLDS clinch- after MRIs showed the sprain.

Yesterday saw Seager participate in baseball activities for the first time since his injury as he took batting practice and fielded ground balls.

“I haven’t smiled in a while,” said Seager. “It’s nice to smile again.”

Dodgers’ manager Dave Roberts said he’s “very confident” that Seager will start at shortstop for the opening game of the Fall Classic, which is tomorrow at 8 PM ET in Los Angeles.

According to MLB.com’s Jesse Sanchez, the Dodgers have found their way “back in the mix” for Harper, with Dodgers manager Dave Roberts among a contingent who went to Las Vegas on Saturday to meet with Harper.

While Harper is eyeing a long-term contract, the Dodgers may be angling with a short-term deal, which makes their involvement, and Harper’s engaging with them, interesting.
