Targeting Corey Seager in the first five rounds of a mixed-league draft may seem like a stretch considering he has all of 98 at-bats to his name, but he's that special kind of prospect who gets the benefit of the doubt, especially since he completely lived up to expectation in those 98 at-bats. He was regarded on about the same level as Carlos Correa and Francisco Lindor coming up through the minors, trailing them only because of defensive concerns, but the hype reached a fever pitch when he began last season 16 for 28 at Double-A, earning a quick promotion to Triple-A, and that's when the clock started ticking for the 21-year-old. Now that his time has arrived, he's already a standout at a weak position, profiling as sort of a souped-up version of his older brother, the Mariners' Kyle Seager.
Dodgers rookie infielder Corey Seager is not in the lineup for Monday's Game 3 of the NLDS against the Mets. Seager started each of the first two games of the series, but went 1 for 8 with four strikeouts. Jimmy Rollins will take over at shortstop and bat second against Matt Harvey.
Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager certainly made the most of his one hit Wednesday against Houston. He knocked it out of the park for a three-run homer. Seager must have been inspired by the promotion of his brother to the Dodgers as he's been scorching hot over the last two months. Most people consider Corey Seager a better prospect than Kyle, but hitting .339 with eight homers and 10 doubles over a 32-game stretch is tough to argue with.
Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager is back in the lineup Saturday against Colorado. Seager had missed the last two games due to sore legs, but he will get the start at shortstop and hit second in the lineup.
Dodgers infielder Corey Seager is out of the lineup Friday against the Rockies, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. Seager is dealing with "heavy legs" according to the report. Seager is receiving a second straight off day Friday because of the issue, but he will reportedly rejoin the lineup at some point during the weekend series. Jimmy Rollins will start at shortstop in his place again Friday, batting second for the Dodgers.
Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager went 1 for 4 with a two-run home run in a 6-2 win over Pittsburgh on Friday. The expectations couldn't have been higher for Seager, but he very well may be exceeding them. Seager now has a cool .412/.508/.647 slash line and he's surely making the injured Jimmy Rollins nervous. It would be surprising to see manager Don Mattingly pull him out of the lineup for Rollins when he returns, but the manager has done stranger things for the sake of "veteran leadership." In any case, use Seager while he's hot and while he's still playing.
