Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager left tonight’s game in the fifth inning after being hit in the right hand/wrist area by a pitch from Marlins southpaw. Seager was immediately removed and didn’t take first base, as Sheldon Neuse replaced Seager as a pinch-runner.
There isn’t yet any word on the severity of Seager’s injury, though even a day-to-day type of absence wouldn’t be good news for a Dodger team that already has plenty of key personnel on the injured list. Just today, AJ Pollock joined such names as Bellinger, Gonsolin, Price, Graterol, Alexander, and McKinstry on the short-term IL, while Dustin May and Edwin Rios suffered season-ending injuries.
It has been announced that Seager has a fracture in his right hand.
