Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager did not participate in the team's workout at Dodger Stadium on Thursday after tweaking his back on a slide Monday night during Game 3 of the National League Division Series against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Seager is day-to-day and receiving treatment, but Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told reporters Thursday that he expects Seager to be available for Game 1 of the NL Championship Series on Saturday.

Seager, the two-time All Star and reigning NL Rookie of the Year, has also been nursing a right elbow injury he sustained in late August.

"We just felt it was better to keep him inside and getting treatment, and he can also rest his elbow," Roberts said.

MLB.com reports Seager's elbow injury could require offseason surgery.

Dodgers' Seager unhappy with September: Time off 'hurt me'

  Dodgers' Seager unhappy with September: Time off 'hurt me' While the Los Angeles Dodgers are heading into the postseason with the league's best record, one of their best players might not be fully up to speed. "Taking that much time off hurt me," Corey Seager told Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times. "I don't even like a single day off. It messes with me. For a while there, I was panicking whether I was going to find it or not, whether it was going to come back.

Share Corey Seager left off Dodgers NLCS roster with back sprain. LOS ANGELES — The Dodgers ’ roster for the National League Championship Series against the Cubs is missing one very important piece.

Seager received treatment on his back on Friday, and during the club’s workout at Dodger Stadium, Kiké Hernandez, Chris Taylor and Charlie Culberson took ground balls “There’s always a possibility [of missing Game 1],” Roberts said. “With the back injury, that kind of locked him up a little bit.

The 23-year-old Seager went 3-for-11 with a triple, four walks, two RBIs and three runs scored during the Dodgers' three-game NLDS sweep of the Diamondbacks.

Seager hit .295 with 22 home runs and 77 RBIs during the regular season.

Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal also did not participate in Thursday's workout after flying home to Arizona to be with his pregnant wife. Grandal is expected to return to Los Angeles for the team's workout Friday.

Los Angeles will face the winner of Thursday night's winner-take-all Game 5 of the division series between the Washington Nationals and Chicago Cubs in the NLCS.

Cubs confident they can make Dodgers sweat .
The Chicago Cubs have a history of coming from behind when their season is on the line. If the Cubs -- who erased a three-games-to-one deficit in the 2016 World Series to capture their first championship since 1908 -- are to return to the Fall Classic, they will have to pull off a comeback achieved just once in baseball history.A 6-1 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series on Tuesday night put the Cubs within a loss of being eliminated.
