One month after being activated from the disabled list Red Sox left-hander Franklin Morales is going back on the shelf with more pectoral muscle problems, according to Alex Speier of WEEI.com.
Morales appeared in just six games between DL stints, throwing 12 innings with a 7.30 ERA and 11/9 K/BB ratio.
He aggravated the injury during Saturday’s game, in which he allowed four runs in 2.1 innings following three straight scoreless appearances.
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.
