The Dodgers announced on Monday that shortstop Corey Seager will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left hip tomorrow in New York City. Seager is expected to resume baseball activities in January.
Seager, 24, was already out for the season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in early May. In 26 games this season before landing on the disabled list, Seager hit .267/.348/.396 with two home runs and 13 RBI across 115 plate appearances.
Chris Taylor has started the vast majority of games at shortstop in Seager’s absence. Manny Machado, acquired from the Orioles last month, has started six games at shortstop and 11 at third base since joining the Dodgers.
Lakers legend Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna were two of nine people who died in a helicopter accident in Calabasas, California earlier today. Bryant’s death sent shockwaves throughout the basketball world, as well as the sports world at large. Here were a few reactions from the baseball world.
We certainly echo these sentiments, sending our condolences to the families and friends of those affected today. What a sad day.
