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.

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.

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.
Thu, Aug 14, 2014 11:00:00 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.
Thu, Aug 7, 2014 10:19:00 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.
Tue, Jul 22, 2014 12:30:00 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.
