Seager is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Cubs, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. With a lefty (Jon Lester) on the mound for Chicago and the Dodgers and Cubs playing a day game after a night game, manager Dave Roberts decided it was a good time to give the lefty-hitting Seager a break. Unless he makes an appearance off the bench, Seager will put his five-game hitting streak on hold while Chris Taylor checks in as the Dodgers' starting shortstop for the afternoon.
Seager is back in the lineup, hitting second and playing shortstop against the Brewers on Thursday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. Seager got a rest Wednesday, but he's back for this tilt with Milwaukee, manning the second spot in the order. He broke out of a brief 0-for-13 skid with a three-hit effort against the Reds in his last start, so he'll look to keep it going against Brewers starter Zach Davies.
Seager is not starting Wednesday against the Reds. Seager sits for the third time this season. He snapped a three-game hitless streak with a three-hit performance in Tuesday's contest. Chris Taylor starts at shortstop in his absence.
Seager went 2-for-3 with two walks, a solo home run and two runs scored in Friday's loss to the Brewers. Seager shook off a HBP earlier in the week and got to Corbin Burnes, turning around a 95.8 mph fastball for his second home run of the season. The narrative was that Seager was scuffling a bit coming off two surgeries (elbow, hip), but he has bumped his line from .222/.340/.333 to .280/.410/.480 in the span of two days.
Seager (hamstring) is starting at shortstop and will bat second Friday against Milwaukee, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports. Seager was lifted from Thursday's matchup with the Cardinals due to a left hamstring bruise, but he'll be ready to roll for the series opener. He's 6-for-15 with three doubles and an RBI over his previous five contests.
