Corey Seager has gotten off to a slow start this season. Should the Dodgers be worried about him?
Tommy John surgery is scary for any player, especially one who relies so heavily on their arm. As a shortstop, Corey Seager needs his right arm to make the plays required of any captain of the infield. And he didn’t just have Tommy John surgery this offseason. Seager got an arthroscopic hip surgery out of the way as well while he was already on the shelf for TJ.
Going under the knife twice in one offseason takes guts, something Seager has proven he has plenty of. But the question remained even through Spring Training, how will he look when he gets back on the field?
Through the first four weeks of the season, it is hard to tell. In this article, I’ll look into why fans should and shouldn’t be worried before coming to a final conclusion about whether or not the All-Star version of Corey we know and love will be back to his future self at some point in 2019.
