Seager went 2-for-5 with an RBI single, a double and a run in a loss to the Rockies on Friday. Seager is heading into the All-Star break hot, with Friday's tally qualifying as his fifth multi-hit effort of July. The veteran slugger is hitting .317 overall this month, a surge that's already boosted his season average 10 points to .238. While there's still considerable room for improvement in that area, Seager's home-run (16) and RBI (56) totals are right on par with his career norms, and the latter figure ranks behind only Mitch Haniger (66 RBI) on the Mariners.
Seager went 2-for-2 with two walks Saturday against the Rockies. Seager continues to quietly gain momentum at the plate, with Saturday's effort marking his fifth multi-hit performance in his last nine starts. While his season-long numbers still lag behind his career baselines, Seager has slugged .509 over the last 15 days.
Seager went 2-for-4 with a two-run double in a win over the Angels on Tuesday. Seager's first-inning double gave the Mariners' offense an early jump-start, as it plated both Jean Segura and Mitch Haniger. The veteran third baseman has opened July with a pair of multi-hit efforts, and after struggling for most of the season, he's slashing .311/.354/.600 with a .403 wOBA and .289 ISO over his last 12 games (48 plate appearances).
Seager went 2-for-3 with a double and a run in a win over the Royals on Sunday. He's now 3-for-9 with two walks since missing a start last Thursday due to a toe injury. At the time he was held out of the series finale against the Orioles, manager Scott Servais had predicted that Seager only needed a day off as a precautionary measure. Indeed, the veteran third baseman was well enough to serve in a pinch-hitting capacity in that contest, and he was subsequently able to start all three games of the series versus the Royals. Seager has started showing some signs of life at the plate, as he's now hitting .400 (8-for-20) with two doubles, two home runs, five RBI and four runs over his last six games.
Seager (toe) is starting at third base and hitting fifth Friday against the Royals, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. He didn't start Thursday's game, but entered as a pinch hitter, so it's not surprising to see him return for the first game of this weekend's series. Seager is hitting .245/.267/.480 with six home runs in 98 at-bats in June.
