Corey Seager went 3-for-4 with a double in Tuesday's loss to the Giants.

Seager picked up double No. 40 for the season in the loss. That was the Dodgers' only extra-base hit on the evening. For the 2016 campaign as a whole, the 22-year-old shortstop is hitting .316/.374/.526 with 25 homers and 69 RBI over 586 at-bats.

Corey Seager went 2-for-5 with an RBI single Monday against the Yankees.

It's easy to forget that Seager had a minor scare with his left wrist at the end of August. The rookie shortstop has hit safely in seven straight games and has notched multi-hit games in five of them. He’s batting .319/.378/.536 overall and continues to build a compelling case for NL MVP.

Corey Seager went 3-for-5 with his 24th homer and 38th double Monday in the Dodgers' 10-2 drubbing of the Diamondbacks.

Seager leads all shortstop in doubles and is three behind the injured Trevor Story for the most homers from a shortstop this year. It's highly unlikely that he'll be the NL MVP this year, but he's certainly going to belong somewhere on the ballot.

Corey Seager is not in the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

He's on the bench with the Padres throwing southpaw Christian Friedrich. Charlie Culberson will handle shortstop. The Dodgers are also sitting Yasmani Grandal, Josh Reddick and Joc Pederson, as Austin Barnes, Yasiel Puig and Enrique Hernandez are at catcher, in right field and center field, respectively.

Corey Seager (wrist) is in the Dodgers' starting lineup for the first half of Wednesday's split doubleheader against the Rockies.

Seager was due to sit Tuesday (before that game got rained out) after taking a foul ball off his left wrist Monday night. X-rays turned up negative. He'll start at shortstop and bat second Wednesday afternoon against Colorado lefty Tyler Anderson.

Corey Seager (wrist) is expected to return to the Dodgers' lineup on Wednesday.

Seager is sitting out Tuesday after getting struck by two pitches -- one off his left wrist -- on Monday night. X-rays came back negative on the National League Rookie of the Year frontrunner. Charlie Culberson is starting at shortstop for the Dodgers on Tuesday in Colorado.

X-rays came back negative on Corey Seager's left wrist.

Seager was hit by a pitch twice on Monday -- including off his wrist in the seventh inning -- but he stayed in the game. Fortunately, tests ruled out anything serious, but he's expected to get the day off on Tuesday at the very least.

Corey Seager slugged a solo homer in Saturday’s win over the Cubs.

Seager finished the day 1-for-4. He’s now up to 23 home runs on the year to go along with a .322/.376/.545 batting line. The Rookie of the Year Award appears to be a lock at this point and he could even get some love for the NL MVP Award.
Aug 27 - 7:44 PM

Corey Seager picked up a dunker of a single with two outs in the ninth inning of Thursday's loss to the Giants, ending Matt Moore's no-hit bid in the process.

Seager stepped to the plate with two outs in the ninth having previously walked against Moore. He would deny him the no-hitter with a little flare single that landed in right field. For the season as a whole, Seager has done quite a bit more than just dunk singles left and right. He is slashing a meaty .322/.377/.538 with 22 homers, 61 RBI and 86 runs scored over 494 at-bats.
Aug 26 - 1:40 AM

Corey Seager went 4-for-5 with homer, a walk, three RBI, and three runs scored in Monday’s blowout win over the Reds.

Seager slugged a two-run blast off Josh Smith in the fifth inning before driving in another run with a single in the eighth. The rookie shortstop has five multi-hit games in his last six and is hitting .385 during the second half. He's batting .321/.375/.540 with 22 homers and 61 RBI on the year.
Aug 22 - 4:45 PM

Corey Seager went 2-for-4 with an RBI single, two walks, and a run scored Friday versus the Reds.

Seager has now hit safely in 10 straight games. Eight of them have been multi-hit games. He has pulled his batting average up to .313, which is the highest it's been since early April. With Trevor Story done for the year, Seager would appear to have a clear path to the NL Rookie of the Year Award.
Aug 19 - 11:54 PM

The X-rays on Corey Seager's bruised right wrist revealed no structural damage.

Seager was plunked on the wrist in Wednesday's loss to the Phillies. He did not leave the game, though, and these X-rays were just of the precautionary variety. Consider the young slugger day-to-day moving forward, but this doesn't sound particularly serious.
Aug 10 - 7:36 PM

Corey Seager hit a pair of solo homers to lead the Dodgers to a 9-4 defeat of the Phillies on Monday.

With his .302 average, 21 homers and 31 doubles, Seager is pretty much a lock for Rookie of the Year honors at this point. He's all set to become the third shortstop 22 or younger to hit 25 homers in a season, joining Alex Rodriguez and Cal Ripken Jr. (both of whom did it twice).
Aug 9 - 1:16 AM

Corey Seager clubbed a three-run homer on Sunday, helping to power the Dodgers to a 14-3 rout over the Diamondbacks.

Seager's three-run blast came in the seventh inning, increasing the Dodgers advantage to 11-3. It took until the final day of July for the hard-hitting shortstop to launch his first home run of the month. He also added a pair of singles in the ballgame, finishing the day 3-for-5 with two runs scored. The impressive 22-year-old is now hitting .310/.365/.532 with 18 homers and 50 RBI on the season.
