Seager announced his retirement from baseball Wednesday. Seager spent all 11 of his major-league seasons with the Mariners and served as an everyday player for most of his career. Across his 11 years in the big leagues, the 34-year-old slashed .251/.321/.442 with 242 home runs, 807 RBI, 705 runs and 55 stolen bases.
Seager went 3-for-5 with a solo home run and a double Wednesday in 4-1 win over Oakland. The veteran third baseman put Seattle on the board in the fourth inning with a 406-foot solo shot to center field. The long ball gave him 100 RBI on the season, marking the first time he has reached that milestone in his big-league career. Seager's .216 batting average isn't appealing, but he has provided solid output with 35 homers, 71 runs and three stolen bases in 149 games.
Seager went 3-for-4 with a double and three RBI in Monday's win over the Athletics. Seager paced Seattle in both hits and RBI in this game, and the veteran third baseman showed no signs of the elbow soreness that has been affecting him over the last few days. That said, the 33-year-old has been struggling this month and is only slashing .180/.286/.377 through 70 plate appearances in September.
Seager (elbow) is starting at third base and batting cleanup Monday against the Athletics. Seager has recently been battling some soreness in his right elbow and received Sunday off, but he's back in the lineup for Monday's series opener. The 33-year-old has a .140/.258/.333 slash line with three homers, two doubles, 11 RBI and eight runs through 15 games in September.
Seager is out of the lineup Sunday against the Royals due to right elbow soreness, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. Seager has apparently been playing through the injury the past few games, and he'll receive a day to rest up Sunday. The 33-year-old should be considered day-to-day while Dylan Moore takes over at the hot corner for Seattle.
