Dodgers Way Quick Hits: Buehler, Kershaw, Seager
It has been a long journey back to the big leagues for Corey Seager but tonight he will make his first start in a big league spring training game against the Chicago Cubs. Corey had been playing in minor league games and last played on Monday when he played seven innings. He was only given one play at short to work with so hopefully, the Cubs hit more balls his way so Corey can get back into game shape.

Seager will probably play between five and seven innings tonight before appearing in the rest of the exhibition games left on the Dodgers’ spring training schedule. Barring any setbacks, Seager will start on opening day against the Arizona Diamondbacks. It will mark his first regular-season game since April 29th of last season which was the last game he played before missing the rest of the season.
Around the Diamond
-Josh Fields who was released by the Dodgers has joined former Dodger Yasmani Grandal in Milwaukee after the Brewers signed him to a minor league deal. The Brewers optioned Fields to Triple-A but he could make an appearance against the Dodgers later on this season.
-The Dodgers have a roster decision to make with Brad Miller. Miller has the ability to opt out of his contract with the Dodgers if he is not on the major league roster to begin the regular season. Despite getting only 22 at-bats this spring, Miller has hit two home runs and posted a .364 batting average. Unless the team begins the season with seven relievers, Miller is unlikely to make the team since Alex Verdugo is a lock to make the opening day roster.
