Video: Statcast on Corey Seager’s big night in Arizona


Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said before Saturday’s game in Arizona that Jimmy Rollins would reclaim starting shortstop duties from rookie Corey Seager when the veteran is able to return from his injured right index finger. But, uh, that might need some more evaluation.

Seager was tremendous in the Dodgers’ 9-5 win over the Diamondbacks on Saturday night at Chase Field, going 4-for-4 with a walk, a double, a homer, a stolen base, and three runs scored. Here’s a glimpse of what the 21-year-old top prospect is capable of …

Seager is now batting .467/.568/.733 over his first nine major league games.

Rollins, meanwhile, is slashing .220/.279/.355 in 132 games this year at age 36.

Orioles option LHP Bruce Zimmermann to minors

Brent Skeen-USA TODAY Sports

SARASOTA, Fla. – The Baltimore Orioles have optioned left-handers Bruce Zimmermann and Nick Vespi and reassigned infielder Lewin Díaz, left-hander Darwinzon Hernandez and catcher Mark Kolozsvary to minor league camp.

The Orioles announced the moves Monday.

Baltimore’s spring training roster now has 46 players.

Zimmermann made 13 starts last season. He went 2-5 with a 5.99 ERA.

The competition for rotation spots with the Orioles has been a significant story during spring training, but after the team acquired Cole Irvin and Kyle Gibson in the offseason – and with top prospect Grayson Rodriguez in the mix as well – there were a lot of pitchers Zimmermann needed to beat out.
