GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Los Angeles Dodgers' top-rated prospect didn't disappoint.
Corey Seager batted .333 and had a .500 on-base percentage while playing good enough defense to leave some people with the impression that he can remain at shortstop despite a filling-in 6-foot-4 frame. But the Dodgers' plan all along was to begin Seager's season in the minor leagues and, on Wednesday, they reassigned him to the minor-league side of camp.
Outfielder Scott Schebler, who had an even more impressive spring at the plate, also was sent to the minor-league side, as were infielder Buck Britton, utility guy Darnell Sweeney, catcher Shawn Zarraga and catcher Chris O'Brien. The Dodgers have 42 healthy players left in major league camp.
