The Dodgers don’t call it a setback. However, shortstop Corey Seager is not any longer swinging his bat, as his recovery from a broken right has “flattened”. “It’s just not responding,” said Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. “He just hasn’t come. When he hits, he still feels it. So we put it on the rear burner and play a touch slow.” Seger started practicing batting within the field together with his team during a series that happened in Arizona a few weeks ago. However, because the number of swings increased, his hands hurt and Seger returned to hitting within the cage, but not in the least lately.
“I don’t know exactly what percentage days he stopped by, but I do know they wanted to prevent the blow to ascertain if there was how to urge obviate the pain,” Roberts said. He talked about the medical staff who oversees rehabilitation. Seager has been conducting weekly scans to see the progress of fracture healing since the injury on May 15. consistent with Roberts, recent scans show that the fracture has not yet “completely healed.” Seger suffered a fracture of the fifth metacarpal when he hit the pitch on May 15th, about six weeks ago.
Roberts was talking about returning the Seager to the Dodgers lineup “early July.” He modified that slight Monday afternoon and extended the definition of “early July” before the 15th. The Dodgers are going to be off for an All-Star Break from July 12th to 15th. “I hope it’s before the All-Star Break, but I feel it’s an equivalent with Corey,” Roberts said. Seger continues to try to do everything but swing the bat during his daily workouts – field the bottom ball, throw across diamonds, and run the bottom. However, “swing vibration” causes new pain. “He’s frustrated,” Roberts said of Seger, who recently avoided reporters on the scene. “That’s probably why he doesn’t want to speak about it. There’s nothing he can say aside from being unprepared and what he can do about it. He’s working hard to urge ready.
“I think he understands that this can’t afford to crack again.” By leading the Dodgers 3-1 / 2 games and playing the San Diego Padres 4-1 / 2 games on Monday, the San Francisco Giants are bound to be the favorite within the National League West in July. Are you surprised that the Dodgers are looking up at the Giants so deeply within the season? “Yeah,” Dodgers utilityman Chris Taylor admitted. “We expect to be at the highest of the division. Give them credit, they’re playing outstandingly. I don’t think they’re doing well. We were ready to play better. But they were specialized and their records show that. So you’ve got to offer them credit. ” Roberts said Taylor speaks for everybody when defining Dodgers expectations.
“I don’t think there’s anyone during this organization who didn’t think we might lead the department that day, but that’s what it’s,” Roberts said. “We need to play better and overcome the Giants. we’ve enough time to try to do that.” The Dodgers even have to affect the challenge of getting the simplest efforts of all their opponents, Roberts said. This year was even more so than in 2018 and 2019 when the Dodgers defended the NL champion. “I don’t think you can’t many thanks for having a true bullseye until you are doing,” he said. “As a world champion, we all know that we usher in the simplest players and check out to play the simplest baseball whenever we play.”
Left-handed Scott Alexander will rejoin Triple-A Oklahoma City in the week and complete his rehab mission with them. Alexander has been on the list of 60-day injuries thanks to shoulder inflammation, but Roberts said he hopes Alexander is going to be activated in the week. Left-handed rescuers aren’t eligible to go away IL until Friday. Left-handed Scott Alexander will rejoin Triple-A Oklahoma City in the week and complete his rehab mission with them.
