What Happened In 2017: Missed most of the season due to a toe injury and wrist surgery.

——

Rob Segedin, who made his Major League debut with the Dodgers last year, began 2017 with Triple-A Oklahoma City. He received a call-up in mid-April, making it into just two games before being placed on the disabled list with a strained toe. Although it was Segedin’s toe that originally sidelined him, his progress was further inhibited by bone spurs in his wrist that required surgery in May. That kept him from being able to start rehabbing until late July.

Once Segedin was deemed healthy enough to play, he rejoined the Dodgers, but only played in one game before being optioned back to Triple-A. Segedin finished the season with Oklahoma City before returning to the big club for September roster expansion.

Segedin got two starts in September, while also serving as a pinch hitter. In 13 September plate appearances, he recorded three hits, two of which were doubles.

Segedin did not make the postseason roster.

2018 Status: Pre-arb eligible. Should spend most of his time in Oklahoma City and should also be on the short list for first position player recalled if there is an injury.
