Roger Clemens throws batting practice to the Astros, is not in the Best Shape of His Life

We’re all gonna go to hell to some extent after we retire. Many of us before. Roger Clemens is no exception:

And throw live BP he did. McTaggart has a report. The upshot: Clemens had fun, but he is not a guy who sounds like he’s coming out of retirement again, be it for the Sugar Land Skeeters, the Houston Astros or anyone else.

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.
