Corey Seager expected to return to Dodgers for World Series

The All-Star didn't play in the NL Championship Series against the Cubs because of a back injury. He batted.295 with 22 homers and 77 RBIs in 145 regular-season games.

Curtis Granderson brings valuable postseason experience to the Los Angeles Dodgers' clubhouse.

Seager's status seemed all but cemented prior to the Dodgers' workout on Monday, with manager Dave Roberts saying the 23-year-old would "aggressively take ground balls" to test the injury. He played all three games in the NL Division Series despite a sore elbow that impeded his throwing.

Roberts has said it's possible Seager will be used as a designated hitter on the road when the games shift to Houston on Friday. Journeyman Charlie Culberson stepped into the lineup and went 5-for-11.

The 2017 World Series kicks off today and the Dodgers are playing for the first time in nearly three decades - so we want to know how you're planning to watch the momentous occasion. Granderson has struggled this postseason, going 1 for 15 with eight strikeouts.

The Dodgers were hoping for a power surge out of Granderson, but he wasn't able to supply it. He was activated from the disabled list on September 1 and hit.235 with a.441 slugging percentage in 22 games to finish the season. Farmer was a third catcher behind Yasmani Grandal and Austin Barnes. He went 6-4 with a 3.98 in 19 appearances during the regular season, 16 of them starts. In three relief appearances to end the season, he allowed four runs in six innings. The Tigers won the game, 6-1.

It's no real surprise that Granderson won't be playing against the Astros, as he was awful in spot duty for the Dodgers down the stretch, hitting.161/.288/.366 in 132 plate appearances.
