Miguel Montero placed on the disabled list

Miguel Montero has had a bad back for some time. It’s gotten too bad so the Dbacks are placing him on the 15-day disabled list. Wil Nieves will take over backstop duties in Arizona.

Given Montero’s track record I fully expect him to give an interview in two weeks in which he tells us, in no uncertain terms, what he thinks of that freakin’ stupid, chickens**t, immature disabled list.

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.
