The Los Angeles Dodgers remain without star shortstop Corey Seager due to a lingering right-hand fracture. Manager Dave Roberts did offer a positive update on his injury rehab last week, stating that he expects to see Seager back in the lineup by early July.
Unfortunately for Los Angeles, Roberts came out with some additional information on the injury last night and it isn't looking good.
Corey Seager Injury Update
According to Roberts, the hand fracture "just ins't responding" and Seager hasn't swung a bat since last week. "He can still feel it when it hits," explained Roberts, who also revealed the Dodgers plan to slow down his rehab process.
Considering Seager has been out of the lineup since May 15, this isn't the sort of injury update that Dodgers fans were hoping to see. It was also reported that Los Angeles is now fully unclear when Seager will resume his rehab assignment or a remote timetable for his full return.
On the year, the two-time All-Star is slashing .265/.361/.422 with 4 home runs in just 169 at-bats. Seager hasn't been able to fully return to his Rookie of the Year award-winning form from 2016 when he slashed .308/.365/.512 with 26 home runs and 72 RBIs. Still, the 27-year-old shortstop is an everyday player and key depth addition to this lineup.
The Dodgers remain World Series favorites, owning the best odds across the MLB (+390), according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
