The Dodgers are getting a big boost ahead of the World Series. According to FanRag Sports' Jon Heyman, shortstop Corey Seager will rejoin the team for the Fall Classic after missing the NLCS due to a back injury. The 23-year-old Seager, who won National League Rookie of the Year honors last season and finished third in the MVP voting, is coming off another terrific campaign, having hit .295/.375/.479 with 22 home runs in 613 plate appearances and earning his second straight All-Star Game nod. Elbow and back injuries, however, limited his playing time in the second half and impacted his production, as he hit only .210/.286/.358 from Sept. 1 through the end of the season. Seager was active for the Division Series, picking up six hits in 21 at-bats against the Diamondbacks, but was left off the NLCS roster against the Cubs due to what the team termed a lower back sprain suffered in the clinching Game 3 against Arizona.
