Seager (hand) had his cast removed Monday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. Seager still hasn't been cleared for baseball activities after undergoing hand surgery in mid-March. With the third baseman expected to be out until June, look for Ryon Healy to hold down the hot corner to open the season.
Seager (hand) was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday. Seager underwent hand surgery in mid-March and is set to be out until June. Ryon Healy is expected to handle third base in his absence, leaving first base for Jay Bruce and possibly Daniel Vogelbach.
Seager (hand surgery) will miss 10-12 weeks, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. Initially it seemed like Seager might just miss April, but now he could miss all of May and some of June. The initially 8-10 week estimate was apparently an estimate for how long it would be until Seager could start swinging a bat, so he will obviously need more time to get up to speed, likely requiring a rehab assignment. Ryon Healy is expected to open the year at third base in his stead.
Seager will undergo surgery on a tendon in his left hand Tuesday and will miss at least the first month of the season, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. Seager suffered the injury while diving to make a catch Friday against the Cubs. An exact timeline has yet to be determined, but he'll be back no sooner than early May. In his absence, the Mariners could start Tim Beckham or move Ryon Healy to third base, opening up first base for Jay Bruce.
Early indications are that Seager (wrist) will open the year on the injured list, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. The team is still expected to give a thorough breakdown of the injury and timetable Monday, but Johns expects the injury to sideline Seager into the regular season, despite the initial X-rays being negative. Ryon Healy has been getting time at third base and could be the primary option there while Seager is on the shelf.
