All is not good for the Los Angeles Dodgers, despite their nine-game lead in the National League West. The team lost shortstop Corey Seager during Tuesday’s 5-3 loss to the Los Angeles Angels with a strained left hamstring, according to the Los Angeles Times.
After the game, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said the early diagnosis for Seager was a Grade 2-plus hamstring strain. Seager is scheduled to undergo an MRI exam Wednesday to determine the extent of the injury, which could send Seager to the injured list for several weeks.
So where do the Dodgers go from here? Rotoworld speculates Chris Taylor will pick up the slack with Seager out of the lineup. But Taylor doesn’t give the Dodgers much at the plate. He’s hitting .218 in 64 games this season.
If the Dodgers aren’t happy with that, it’s possible president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman places a call to Yankees general manager Brian Cashman. Why? Two names: Thairo Estrada and Tyler Wade.
Remember, the Yankees are desperate for starting pitching, especially after missing on Dallas Keuchel.
