The Los Angeles Dodgers waited 29 years for a National League pennant. Now they are waiting a couple more days to make their final roster decisions for the World Series, which begins Tuesday against the Houston Astros at Dodger Stadium.

The biggest question is the status of star shortstop Corey Seager, who missed the Dodgers' five-game win over the Chicago Cubs in the NL Championship Series. Seager, nursing a bad back, has been working out in Los Angeles since the Dodgers finished a sweep of the Arizona Diamondbacks in the NL Division Series.

"Corey is taking swings off the tee," Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Saturday. "Everything looks good, but obviously we'll know more today."

In the finale of the Arizona series, Seager injured his back while sliding into a base, a condition that lingered long enough to keep him from the Dodgers' NLCS roster.

After Los Angeles ousted Chicago, Roberts seemed optimistic that Seager would be able to return. That hasn't changed, but a final determination won't be made until Seager faces live pitching during workouts at Dodger Stadium later Saturday and Sunday.
