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.
The Angels have signed pitcher Matt Harvey to a one-year contract, MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports. Fancred’s Jon Heyman reports that the contract is for $11 million with an additional $3 million available through performance incentives.
Harvey, 29, spent 2018 with the Mets and Reds, posting an aggregate 4.94 ERA with a 131/37 K/BB ratio in 155 innings. He started off poorly with the Mets, so they traded him to the Reds in early May. He pitched much better in Cincinnati.
Harvey should have a spot secured at the back of the Angels’ rotation, but health and performance can always change that leading up to Opening Day.
