Marlins’ outfielder/3B Chris Coghlan may soon begin
taking ground balls and taking batting practice, which is a sign that he will be putting
off knee surgery until after the season. Assuming a medical exam he was scheduled to have last night turned up nothing crazy, Coghlan could soon be sent
out for a rehab assignment soon.
I dunno, man. That was a pretty serious injury. Such an ambitious rehab schedule seems like pie in the sky to me.
Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager will be on the team’s World Series roster.
Seager, 23, played in the NLDS but was left off the NLCS roster due to a lower back injury suffered in Game 3 against the Diamondbacks. He had three hits, including a triple, in 15 plate appearances in that series. During the regular season, Seager hit .295/.375/.479 with 22 home runs, 77 RBI, and 85 runs scored across 613 PA.
Charlie Culberson and Chris Taylor handled shortstop while Seager was absent. Both players were among the Dodgers’ best performers in the NLCS. With Seager back in the fold, Taylor will play mostly center field and Culberson will return to his bench role.
