Shortstop Corey Seager has been placed on the 10-day injured list with a left hamstring strain. His highly anticipated trip to the IL came two days after the initial injury occurred in Anaheim.
Dodgers confirm that Wednesday's MRI on Seager revealed between a Grade 1 and Grade 2 strain, less severe than the Tuesday night preliminary exam indicated. Still, the best guess is that Seager is likely to miss a month.— Ken Gurnick (@kengurnick) June 13, 2019
This injury couldn’t have come at worse timing. Seager was finally getting into a nice groove, with a nine-game hitting streak dating back to June 2. Overall this season, he has a .278/.359/.468 slash line with eight home runs, 38 RBIs and leads the team in doubles with 21, which is also tied for second in the NL (with Bryce Harper) behind Josh Bell’s 25.
To fill the 25-year-old’s roster spot, Matt Beaty has been activated from his stint on the 10-day IL. Before dealing with a left hip flexor strain, Beaty appeared in 17 games with the Dodgers and was batting .286 with seven RBIs.
