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.

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.

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.
Tue, Jun 24, 2014 10:21:00 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.
Sat, Jun 7, 2014 10:12:00 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.
Sun, Jun 1, 2014 10:02:00 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.

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.
