Seager went 1-for-5 with three RBI and a walk in Monday's win over the Athletics. Seager struck out three times and didn't have his best game at the plate, but he made his presence felt with the only knock he got -- he scored Chris Taylor, Edwin Rios and Mookie Betts with a three-run double in the top of the second inning. This was Seager's first single-hit game of the campaign, but the star shortstop has gotten off to a strong start, going 9-for-17 with three doubles and six RBI over his first four games of the campaign.
Seager is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against Rockies, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports. Manager Dave Roberts said he wanted to get his regulars a day off early in the season. With the team traveling to Oakland for a series beginning Monday, stars Seager and Cody Bellinger will get a breather. Seager, who already has eight hits this season, will be replaced at shortstop by Gavin Lux with Zach McKinstry taking over at second base.
Seager went 3-for-4 with a double, an RBI, a run scored and a walk in Saturday's win over the Rockies. Seager hit a double off Jon Gray and later drove in a run, scoring Gavin Lux, in the top of the seventh. Seager has started the season on fire, recording two or more hits in each of his first three games and posting a .667 average through his first three appearances so far.
Seager is starting Saturday's game at Colorado but will receive the day off for Sunday's series finale, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports. Manger Dave Roberts plans to give every lineup regular a day off early in the season, and Seager's turn to sit comes Sunday. The 26-year-old is 5-for-8 with one double, three runs, two RBI and three walks through two games.
Seager went 3-for-5 with a walk, a double, three runs scored and an RBI in Friday's 11-6 win over the Rockies. The shortstop is off to a blistering start to the campaign, reaching base eight times in his first 11 plate appearances, but opening the season in Coors Field can have that effect. Seager has every incentive to match or top last year's .943 OPS with free agency looming, and hitting near the top of a potent Dodgers lineup should provide him with plenty of opportunities to produce big counting stats in 2021.
