Watch: Dodgers’ Corey Seager sees live pitching in minor league games.

GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Dodgers sent Corey Seager to the back fields today to see live pitching, for the first time (I think) since he injured his knee earlier this month. Seager didn’t run at all in the two times I saw him bat against the Kansas City Royals, so it could be that he hasn’t been cleared to run in a live game yet. Seager has been running the bases on his own.

It’s a small step forward for the 21-year-old shortstop, who was given a 1-2 week timetable for recovery when he sprained his left knee on March 12. Saturday will mark two weeks since the injury.

Here’s some video from his two plate appearances:
