It was reported by Mychal Thompson on ESPN 710 Radio that Trayce Thompson has been called up to the major league roster.
The Dodgers are yet to post any transactions so nobody knows of what the corresponding move would entail.
Mychal Thompson on ESPN 710 this morning said Trayce Thompson has been called up to the Dodgers. Corey Seager to DL?

There look to be three possibilities that seem most likely. Corey Seager, who hurt his hamstring two days ago against the Colorado Rockies could be sent to the 10-day disabled list. Right fielder Yasiel Puig could also be headed to the disabled list due to his own nagging hamstring injury.
The last of the most likely options is for the Dodgers to just send down Mike Freeman, who was originally brought up to replace an injured Franklin Gutierrez.
Trayce Thompson makes the most sense for replacing either Freeman or Puig, but the fear of Corey Seager spending another week on the disabled list could become true within the next few hours.
