Ryan Braun is at Miller Park today, working on a food drive:
He’s supposed to make his first comments to the media since his PED suspension. I can’t imagine anything he’ll say will change folks’ opinions about him. Everything that matters with respect to Braun will take place on the field, where his heroics will win some folks who were partial to him anyway back. Those who are upset or disgusted at him will stay that way.
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.
