Segedin was called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Friday. Segedin joins the Dodgers with the expansion of rosters coming into effect. The outfielder has missed most of the season with a wrist injury, but figures to serve as added depth in the outfield throughout September.
Segedin was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Friday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports. Just days after being activated from the 60-day disabled list, Segedin gets sent to Triple-A so the Dodgers can make room on their roster for first baseman Adrian Gonzalez. The move doesn't come as a surprise, as some were expecting him to stay at Triple-A after he was activated from the disabled list anyway.
Segedin (wrist) heads out on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday, True Blue LA's Eric Stephen reports. Segedin has been out since mid-April while initially dealing with a toe injury, and then undergoing wrist surgery near the end of May. The outfielder will likely need an extended period of time shaking off the rust in the minors, and could remain with Oklahoma City depending on the route the club chooses to go. At this point, Segedin provides minimal impact for the Dodgers as organizational depth.
Segedin (wrist) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Friday. The move was necessary to clear room on the 40-man roster for the newly acquired Jason Wheeler, and it 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, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com 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.
