Segedin (wrist) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Friday.
The move was necessary to clear room on the 40-man roster for newly-acquired Jason Wheeler and makes sense given Segedin's recovery timetable. The 28-year-old underwent wrist surgery last week and had already been on the 10-day DL while dealing with turf toe. With the transaction being retroactive to April 19, when Segedin first went on the DL, he may be able to return sometime this July once he's fully recovered from his operation.
Segedin underwent surgery for an injured wrist and will miss 4-6 weeks, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports Friday.
Segedin had seen his rehab stagnate, as he had been out with a toe injury since April 19 without making significant progress. That injury that was originally expected to keep him out for perhaps a month. However, he suffered a separate wrist injury while rehabbing, and this new ailment could keep him off the field until the All-Star break. With outfielders like Brett Eibner getting chances for the Dodgers now, there's no guarantee Segedin will even make the major league roster upon his return.
Segedin's rehab has become "stagnant," per manager Dave Roberts, as he struggles with turf toe, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.
The reserve outfielder was placed on the 10-day disabled list April 19. Segedin was initially expected to return sometime in mid-May, but these types of maladies can linger. He may not even rejoin the big-league club upon his return unless further injuries open up a role.
Segedin was placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday with a toe injury.
Segedin injured his toe in just his second game after being called up to the big leagues. Brett Eibner was promoted from Triple-A to take his spot on the roster for the time being. Segedin was 1-for-4 through two games before injuring his toe. It's unclear if he'll rejoin the Dodgers or head back to Triple-A upon his activation.
Segedin was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City prior to Monday's game. He got a spot-start at first base and went 1-for-3 with a run scored in a 4-2 loss to Arizona.
The 28-year-old was called up to replace Rich Hill (finger) on the 25-man roster. It was surprising that the Dodgers threw him into the starting lineup over regular backup first baseman Scott Van Slyke. Segedin came through, scoring one of the club's two runs Monday night. It is unclear if he will stay with the big club for the duration of Hill's DL stint, as the Dodgers appear to need more bullpen arms to offset their recent run of short outings from pitchers not named Clayton Kershaw.
