Maeda looks to keep Marlins on the ropes

Shortstop Corey Seager is expected to return to the starting lineup on Tuesday night when Kenta Maeda makes the 7:10 p.m. PT start against the Marlins and lefty Dillon Peters. Seager got the first seven innings off Monday before entering as a pinch-hitter during the Dodgers' game-winning rally. Maeda has tried to be more aggressive early in the count, and the results are mixed. His strikeouts are up (24 in 14 1/3 innings), but so are hits (20) and walks (five).
