The Los Angeles Dodgers placed shortstop Corey Seager on the 10-day injured list as expected Thursday, two days after he came away with a left hamstring strain in a game against the Los Angeles Angels. There is no timetable on Seager's return but the injury has been downgraded from a more severe Grade 2 strain to somewhere between a Grade 1 and Grade 2 strain, reported.

After a slow start to the season following hip and elbow surgeries that cost him almost all of last year, Seager was starting to find his groove. He was batting .278 with eight home runs and 38 RBIs in 66 games this season, but was 15-for-30 with six doubles over his past seven games. The two-time All-Star and 2016 National League Rookie of the Year, Seager has played in just 92 games since the end of the 2017 World Series. He is a career .298 hitter with 62 home runs and 217 RBIs.

To fill Seager's spot on the roster, the Dodgers activated infielder Matt Beaty from the 10-day IL. Beaty, who is batting .286 with seven RBIs over his first 17 major league games, was out with left hip flexor strain.
