Shocking update on the Jhonny Peralta clam chowder saga

19 Comments

Tigers shortstop Jhonny Peralta missed yesterday’s game when he had an allergic reaction to clam chowder after eating the soup without knowing what it was. He was ambushed, really.

This is the type of story you don’t just give up on covering, obviously, so Jason Beck of MLB.com has an update:

Life in an MLB clubhouse is a lot more exciting than I imagined, assuming you’re really into soup.

Corey Seager will be included on Dodgers’ World Series roster

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.
