Matt Harvey is gonna come back after Tommy John surgery and he’s going to be good and he’s going to make millions because he’s super talented and because Tommy John surgery is far closer to the routine these days than it used to be. That said, his torn UCL diagnosis is sad and Harvey is understandably upset about it.
Thank goodness, then, he has a catcher who understands and hugs him and makes him feel better:

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.
