The Dodgers took two losses against the Angels on Tuesday night as shortstop Corey Seager was taken out of the game with an apparent hamstring injury in the top of the ninth inning.

Seager was running to third base after a single from Alex Verdugo when he reached for his hamstring and started limping.

He was able to walk off the field under his own power and was replaced on the bases by Kyle Garlick.

Seager has been one of the Dodgers best hitters over the past month, so hopefully it isn’t too serious. He came into the game hitting .270/.351/.464 with a 117 wRC+ before adding three more hits.


Corey Seager will have an MRI tomorrow but the early results show a Grade 2 plus strain of his hamstring, according to Manager Dave Roberts.

“We’ll know more once he gets a test tomorrow, the MRI,” Roberts said. “But obviously it’s very unfortunate with the way he’s been playing and what he means to our ballclub. So as far as timetable, we’ll know more tomorrow.”

Seager is expected to go on the IL and will likely miss a decent amount of time. Expect Matt Beaty to be activated while Chris Taylor takes over as the primary shortstop, according to Bill Plunkett.
