"He looks good," said Dave Roberts, manager of the Dodgers Tuesday of the National League's Rookie of the Year in 2016, when he broke 308 with 26 home runs and 72 RBIs.
Roberts, speaking to journalists in his first availability of spring training, hopes that Seager, which is launching at 90 feet, can get 50 to 60 bats before being eliminated for the action of the Cactus League.
Seager only played 26 games in 2018 before undergoing Tommy John's intervention at the end of the season on May 4th. On August 7, he opted for another arthroscopic surgery on his left hip.
"The angels of Los Angeles hope to have designated the beater Shohei Ohtani back in line for May," says director Brad Ausmus.

"We are thinking about May, in May, but suppose that everything goes well," said Ausmus.

"I can hit, throw, run and everything feels good," said Posey. "That said, it's not the same as going on the field for live rehearsals (batting tests) or games in spring".
