Dodgers SS prospect Corey Seager slugged a grand slam in Sunday's win for Triple-A Oklahoma City.
It was the second grand slam of his minor league career. The 21-year-old has four multi-hit games in his last eight contests. The former first-round pick has done most of his damage this year against left-handers. He's hit .326 versus southpaws compared to just .248 in 238 at-bats versus right-handers. Seager has slumped a bit since the All-Star break, hitting only .254 with three homers. Aug 24 - 3:04 PM

Corey Seager has played third base the last two nights at Triple-A Oklahoma City.

The 21-year-old shortstop prospect is adding some defensive versatility ahead of a possible September callup to the major leagues. Seager hasn't hit as well at Triple-A as he did in the lower levels of the minors, but he is still one of the top prospects in baseball and could take on significant fantasy value if an injury opens him up to regular playing time in Los Angeles.

Dodgers SS prospect Corey Seager recorded four hits in Saturday's win for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

It was Seager's first four-hit game since May 28. He entered Saturday's game in a 4-for-33 slump and has only hit .241 in 79 at-bats since July 1. Seager remains a fascinating prospect and should arrive in the majors no later than 2016.

Dodgers SS prospect Corey Seager launched his eighth homer for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday.

That gives him 13 blasts across two minor league levels this season. With Byron Buxton and Kris Bryant both in the bigs, Seager might be the most intriguing prospect left in the minor leagues. He's hit just .265 since June 1 but is still batting .306 for the year with 44 RBI. Even when the hits aren't falling, the 21-year-old doesn't have to worry about making contact. He's struck out just 43 times in 307 at-bats (14 percent). At this point, it would be an upset if Seager doesn't make his Dodgers debut in 2015.

Dodgers prospect SS Corey Seager went 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs and three RBI on Wednesday for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

The home runs were Seager’s 10th and 11th of the season, and he ended a homerless draught dating back to June 5. The Dodgers’ top prospect is having an excellent 2015 campaign, batting .313/.361/.528 with 33 extra-base hits and 39 RBI through 66 games between the Double-A and Triple-A levels. It’s also worth noting that the 21-year-old has toned down some of the swing-and-miss in his game this season, as his current 13.9% strikeout rate represents the lowest mark in his career. Seager could be the next high-profile prospect to reach the major leagues.
Jun 25 - 2:09 PM

Dodgers prospect SS Corey Seager had a career day at the plate on Thursday, going 6-for-6 with a home run, two doubles and six RBI for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

It took Seager a few weeks to fully adjust to the Triple-A level but he's now officially on fire, with an insane .722 (13-for-18)/.750/1.444 batting line, seven extra-base hits (three home runs) and 10 RBI in his last four games. The 21-year-old’s hot streak has pushed his Triple-A batting line to .324/.367/.490 through 25 contests, and he’s batting .346/.385/.571 with eight home runs and 12 doubles over 45 games between Double-A Tulsa and Oklahoma City. The Dodgers don’t have any reason to rush Seager, especially after the official signing of Hector Olivera, but he’s clearly going to make it difficult for the organization to keep him in the minors for the entire season.
May 29 - 3:16 PM

Dodgers shortstop prospect Corey Seager delivered four hits Tuesday in a win for Triple-A Oklahoma City.

The 21-year-old mega-talent homered twice Monday and is now batting .500 with four RBI over his last three contests. The former first-round pick has made a smooth transition to Triple-A, hitting .280 in 93 at-bats since his call-up. Seager is MLB.com's sixth-ranked prospect. It's no wonder the Dodgers let Hanley Ramirez walk in free agency with Seager waiting in the wings.

Dodgers prospect SS Corey Seager has been promoted to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Seager made the most of his final game with Double-A Tulsa on Thursday, as he launched his fifth home run of the season before getting pulled in the bottom of the fourth inning. Through 19 games in the Texas League, the 21-year-old was batting .375/.407/.675 with five home runs, seven doubles and 15 RBI. Seager will now head to Triple-A Oklahoma City where he’ll likely see time at both shortstop and third base, with the latter position representing his clearest route to the major leagues. Before the promotion, Seager appeared in 15 games at shortstop and four at third base. The Dodgers’ top prospect appears to be on the fast track to the major leagues and could arrive sooner than expected.

Dodgers prospect Corey Seager belted a pair of homers Saturday for Double-A Tulsa.

The 20-year-old has impressed at every level, hitting .320 across 1,082 minor league at-bats. Seager doesn't walk much (just two free passes this season), but that approach hasn't hindered his success. His .433 average this season leads all Texas League hitters. Seager doesn't have anything left to prove at Double-A and should be headed to Triple-A Oklahoma City shortly.

Dodgers infield prospect Corey Seager has been playing some third base at Double-A Tulsa.

He's played there twice so far this season and president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman expects to see Seager at the hot corner "roughly once a week." Although the consensus among scouts is that the 6-foot-4, 215-pounder will eventually move to third base, the Dodgers aren't ready to push Seager off shortstop yet. "The idea is at some point, whether it’s this year or next year, to the extent that we have an injury and he’s our best option if he’s only played shortstop, that obviously limits him to an injury happening at that one position," Friedman said. "Giving him reps at another position only helps him and helps us." Ranked by Baseball America as the No. 5 prospect in the game, Seager is hitting .423/.436/.654 with two homers in his first 13 games for Tulsa and should be promoted to Triple-A Oklahoma City before long.
Apr 24 - 9:19 AM

Dodgers prospect Corey Seager is hitting an impossible .583 for Double-A Tulsa this season.

Take away a hitless outing on April 10 and that average stretches to .700. Seager hit .345 for Double-A Chattanooga last season and has nothing left to prove at this level. The 20-year-old's promotion to Triple-A is imminent. With lifelong platoon Justin Turner and the ancient Jimmy Rollins taking turns at shortstop, it shouldn't be long until Corey joins his older brother Kyle in the major leagues.
Apr 15 - 3:02 PM

Dodgers prospect SS Corey Seager went 4-for-4 on Monday for Double-A Tulsa.

Seager has now collected 11 hits in his first 20 at-bats, good for a .550 batting average, and he has multiple hits in four of five games. The 20-year-old was one of the top hitters in the minor leagues last season, batting .349/.402/.602 with 20 home runs, 50 doubles and 97 RBI in 526 plate appearances between High-A Rancho Cucamonga and Double-A Chattanooga. There’s no obvious place on the Dodgers’ infield for Seager, but given his tremendous hitting ability and overall feel for the game, it wouldn’t come as a surprise if he still received a call-up late in the season.
Apr 14 - 12:03 PM

Dodgers reassigned SS Corey Seager to minor league camp.

Seager showed what he's capable of this spring, batting .333/.526/.500 with five runs scored, but he was never going to break camp with the club. He's the team's shortstop of the future, though, and has a good shot at becoming a star in short order.
Mar 18 - 8:17 PM

Corey Seager walked twice and scored two runs in three at-bats Thursday against the White Sox.

The Dodgers' shortstop prospect will start the season at Triple-A but could make the major leagues during the season. Seager posted excellent numbers between Single-A and Double-A last year, hitting a combined 1.004 OPS with 20 home runs and 97 RBI. Jimmy Rollins currently owns the shortstop position for the Dodgers.
Mar 5 - 5:55 PM

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.
