Dodgers: Corey Seager Exits Game Early With Apparent Injury

The Dodgers must have things going too well for them, something had to even out eventually. Corey Seager had to exit during the 3rd inning of the game on Friday with an apparent injury. 

On a groundball that went to Chris Taylor at second, Seager ranged a few steps to his left very slowly. He immediately called the Dodgers medical staff out and exited the game. The staff walked him off under his own power, so it is unclear what happened. He did appear to be walking gingerly though and has a history of lower-body issues. 

If Seager has to miss any significant amount of time, the Dodgers will be without one of their best hitters. He had been crushing the ball as of late hitting for extra-bases almost on a daily basis. Seager is coming off of a year of hamstring injuries in 2019. He is also coming off of Tommy John surgery and hip surgery from the year prior. 

Seager had already been nursing some calf and quad tightness in the last few days. He sat out the Dodgers’ first two games against the Padres, being held to just DH duties. 

Hernandez came into the game at second base to replace Seager as Chris Taylor moved over to shortstop. We will update as we have more information here.
