LOS ANGELES -- Triple-A Oklahoma City finishes off a five-game, four-day series in Omaha on Thursday, and for the sixth straight day will not have Corey Seager in the lineup. He did not make the trip to Omaha, but is expected to rejoin the team soon.

"Corey had a little virus. He's on the mend, feeling stronger daily," said Dodgers director of player development Gabe Kapler. "We expect him to be fully participating in game activities in short order."

Seager, the consensus top prospect in baseball, is hitting .283/.335/.461 with 20 doubles and eight home runs in 65 games since his promotion to Triple-A. He last played on Friday, July 17.

Oklahoma City plays four games in Round Rock followed by four in Memphis to complete its road trip.
