Dodgers shortstop prospect Corey Seager went 2-for-5 with two doubles for Double-A Chattanooga on Friday.
Seager has not walked much in Double-A and his home run rate has dropped precipitously, but he is hitting a phenomenal .336/.358/.509 as a 20-year old in Double-A. He has the potential to hit .280 with 20 home runs, but there are questions as to whether he will stick at shortstop or need to move to third base long term. Seager will likely reach the major leagues at some point in 2015. Aug 23 - 11:17 AM

Dodgers prospect shortstop Corey Seager went 2-for-4 with a double on Wednesday for Double-A Chattanooga, raising his Double-A line to .346/.358/.538.

Seager has batted .383/.396/.596 during his current 12-game hitting streak, and he now has hits in 18 of his 20 games in Double-A. He has two walks and 23 strikeouts in 82 plate appearances (2.4 and 28.0 percent, respectively), which are both concerning. However, Seager is mashing for power and average at the Double-A level as a 20-year old, which is very impressive.
Aug 14 - 11:00 AM

Dodgers shortstop prospect Corey Seager went 2-for-4 with a homer Wednesday for Double-A Chattanooga.

Seager has a .339/.345/.554 line with five doubles, two triples, and one home run through his first 14 games in the Southern League. It's not the .352/.411/.633 line he had in the hitter-haven California League, but he is off to a good start as a 20-year-old in Double-A. Substantial doubts linger as to whether Seager will remain at shortstop long term, or if he will need to be shifted to third base, but the bat will play at any position. He has the potential to hit .280 with 20 home runs at his peak in the majors. Seager will likely open 2015 with Chattanooga, and could be up with the Dodgers as soon as mid-2015.
Aug 7 - 10:19 AM

Dodgers shortstop prospect Corey Seager went 2-for-4 with a double for Double-A Chattanooga on Monday.

Seager went 1-for-6 with four strikeouts in his Double-A debut, but has gone 3-for-10 in his first two games in the Southern League. For the season, he hit .352/.411/.633 with 34 doubles, two triples, and 18 home runs over 80 games with High-A Rancho Cucamonga. Seager is likely to finish the season in Double-A, and could reach the major leagues no earlier than late-2015.
Jul 22 - 12:30 PM

Dodgers prospect SS Corey Seager had another huge game Sunday, as he went 4-for-6 with two home runs and six RBI for High-A Rancho Cucamonga.

Seager has been one of the hottest hitters in the minor leagues this season, as Sunday's game bumped his batting line to .353/.409/.628 to go along with 17 home runs, 31 doubles and 65 RBI. The 20-year-old has been especially productive since the beginning of May, batting .374/.435/.683 with 15 homers, 25 doubles and 52 RBI in 56 games. Expect Seager to receive a promotion to Double-A Chattanooga sometime soon.
Jul 7 - 11:11 AM

Dodgers shortstop prospect Corey Seager went 4-for-6 with a double for High-A Rancho Cucamonga.

Seager is hitting .353/.405/.613 for the season. Even taking into account the offense-friendly environments where he plays the majority of his games, there is no obvious reason for his lack of a promotion.
Jun 24 - 10:21 AM

Dodgers shortstop prospect Corey Seager went 3-for-5 with two home runs for High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Friday, raising his season line to .348/.397/.620.

Seager has been particularly hot as of late, hitting .398/.432/.841 with 12 doubles and nine home runs over his last 21 games. Rancho Cucamonga, and the California League as a whole, are great places for hitters, so his offensive outburst should be taken with a grain of salt, but it will be interesting how well Seager can do against more advanced pitching in the more neutral environment of Double-A Chattanooga when he is promoted later this summer.
Jun 7 - 10:12 AM

Dodgers shortstop prospect Corey Seager went 3-for-5 with a double and a home run for High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Sunday, raising his season line to .354/.405/.605.

Seager's numbers are inflated by the hitter-friendly environment in Rancho Cucamonga and the California League as a whole, but Seager has been on fire since he returned from a hamstring injury, hitting .400/.455/.700 in 27 games in May. He will look to continue hitting, and could be in line for a promotion to Double-A Chattanooga if he keeps hitting.
Jun 1 - 10:02 AM

Dodgers prospect SS Corey Seager stayed red-hot on Thursday, going 4-for-5 with a double and RBI for High-A Rancho Cucamonga.

It's hard to find a minor-league hitter who's been hotter than Seager, as the 20-year-old is batting a robust .449/.500/.718 with 35 hits (15 extra-base hits) in 19 games this month. His four-hit performance on Thursday also pushed his current hitting streak to nine games, and he's batting .526/.550/.947 with 20 hits (seven doubles, three homers) and 11 RBI during that span. Seager currently leads the California League with a .368 batting average and ranks second with a 1.016 OPS.
May 23 - 3:19 PM

Dodgers prospect SS Corey Seager went 4-for-5 with two doubles and a home run on Sunday for High-A Rancho Cucamonga.

He also collected three RBI, scored two runs and struck out. Seager, 20, has been on fire since the calendar turned to May, batting .393/.464/.639 with nine doubles, two homers, eight RBI and 12/7 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 15 games this month. Seager has six extra-base hits during his current five-game hitting streak, and he enters the week coming off back-to-back games with a home run.
May 19 - 8:29 PM

Dodgers prospect SS Corey Seager had another big game on Sunday, going 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles for High-A Rancho Cucamonga.

Sunday's game was Seager's second in a row with two doubles, and it pushed his season total to 11. The 20-year-old is now batting .333/.391/.508 with 15 extra-base hits (two home runs), 15 RBI, five steals and a 30/11 strikeout-to-walk ratio through 29 games. He's been absolutely raking this month since returning from a minor hamstring injury, with a .429 batting average and 1.084 OPS in his last nine games.
May 12 - 10:52 AM

Dodgers shortstop prospect Corey Seager went 3-for-4 with two doubles and a walk for High-A Ranch Cucamonga on Saturday.

Since his return from a minor hamstring injury, Seager has been on fire, hitting .400/.500/.500 with three doubles, six walks, and five strikeouts in eight games.
May 11 - 11:50 AM

Dodgers shortstop prospect Corey Seager returned from the disabled list on Saturday, going 1-for-4 with a walk for High-A Rancho Cucamonga.

Seager missed about 10 days with a hamstring injury, but was back at shortstop for the Quakes. He is having a solid 2014 and could see time in Double-A in late summer if he keeps producing.
May 4 - 11:48 AM

Dodgers prospect SS Corey Seager was placed on High-A Rancho Cucamonga's seven-day disabled list with a hamstring injury.

The move is retroactive to April 24. Prior to his injury, Seager had put together a five-game hitting streak with two home runs and eight RBI. The 20-year-old struggled at Rancho Cucamonga during the final month of the 2013 regular season, but he's shown much better this year in his return to the hitter-friendly California League. Through 20 games, Seager is batting .294/.337/.482 with 10 extra-base hits, 13 RBI, four steals and a 24/5 strikeout-to-walk ratio.
Apr 28 - 4:51 PM

Dodgers shortstop prospect Corey Seager went 2-for-4 with a double and a stolen base on Wednesday night for High-A Rancho Cucamonga.

Seager is hitting .321/.381/.446 with five doubles, a triple, and four stolen bases over his first 14 games of the season. He hit just .160/.246/.320 in his 27-game introduction to the California League in 2013, so it's good to see that he is hitting well at the same level in 2014. While Seager has yet to hit a home run this season, he projects to have 15-20 home run power at his peak.
