Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Tuesday that Corey Seager is the team's starting shortstop and not in a platoon with Jimmy Rollins.
Rollins started Game 3 on Monday, but Seager is back in there in Game 4 on Tuesday even against a left-hander. The impressive rookie hit .337/.425/.561 in 27 regular season games. Tue, Oct 13, 2015 05:20:00 PM

Corey Seager is starting at shortstop and batting third for the Dodgers in Friday's Game 1 of the NLDS versus the Mets.

Just two of Seager's 21 starts in the majors have come in the third spot in the lineup, but clearly manager Don Mattingly has plenty of faith in the 21-year-old's bat. And why shouldn't he, given Seager's .337/.425/.561 batting line to start his career. Also worth noting is that, as expected, Carl Crawford and Andre Ethier are at the corner outfield spots and Yasiel Puig is on the bench.

Corey Seager finished out the 2015 regular season with a perfect day, going 3-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Sunday's win over the Padres.

Seager clubbed his fourth home run of the season in the sixth inning. While he only saw 98 at-bats this season, he made the most of them while working to a superb .337/.425/.561 triple-slash with four homers and 17 RBI. On Saturday, Jimmy Rollins said that the Dodgers would be rolling with Seager in the playoffs, so he'll have a chance to become a household name if he delivers over the next few weeks.

Jimmy Rollins confirmed Friday that the Dodgers have decided to roll with rookie Corey Seager at shortstop for the postseason.

Rollins noted, "We had a conversation and that's the way it was said: 'We're going to go with the kid. That's the lineup we feel is best.'" The 21-year-old phenom has been outstanding in his limited time with the big league club, slashing .316/.404/.516 with three homers and 16 RBI in 95 at-bats.

Corey Seager has started three out of the last four games at shortstop for the Dodgers.

That includes a start Tuesday even with lefty Madison Bumgarner on the mound for the Giants. Manager Don Mattingly had said previously that Jimmy Rollins would get his starting job back when he recovered from his finger injury, but he's healthy now and Seager is still starting. The skipper refused to say that Seager has officially usurped Rollins, but he did acknowledge that he had a conversation with Rollins about the situation. Seager has hit .333/.423/.560 with three homers in his first 23 major league games and it's clear that he's the club's top option at shortstop moving forward.

Corey Seager's lone hit in five at-bats was an RBI single, helping the Dodgers blank the Giants 8-0 on Tuesday.

The RBI didn't matter much as it boosted the Dodgers' lead to 5-0 in the eighth inning. Seager has reached base in all 21 games in which he has started and now carries a .333/.423/.560 triple-slash line with three home runs, 15 RBI, and 15 runs scored over 97 plate appearances.

Corey Seager went 2-for-5 with an RBI single but the Dodgers dropped Monday's contest 3-2 to the Giants in 13 innings.

Seager got the Dodgers on the board with an RBI single in the third inning off of Jake Peavy, but it would prove to be a low-offense night. The rookie is brandishing a terrific .342/.435/.582 batting line with three home runs, 13 RBI, and 14 runs scored since debuting on September 3.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly admitted Friday that the team is being careful with Corey Seager as he deals with heavy legs.

If he's feeling fatigued at all, it certainly hasn't shown on the field where he's slashing .353/.457/.603 with three long balls in his 19 games. It appears as though he will continue to play sporadically down the stretch while Jimmy Rollins sees the bulk of the work at shortstop.

Corey Seager is not in the Dodgers' lineup Friday.

It's the second straight game he's sat and the third straight contest that Jimmy Rollins has been at shortstop, as manager Don Mattingly has stuck to his word. Seager is hitting .353/.457/.603 with three homers in 19 games with the big club, but unfortunately it doesn't look like he's going to be playing every day.

Corey Seager is batting third for the Dodgers on Sunday.

Seager has mostly been in the No. 5 or 6 spot but has earned a move up in the order by batting .389/.492/.611 in his first 65 major league plate appearances. Manager Don Mattingly has been saying Jimmy Rollins (finger) will get his starting job back when he's ready, but it's hard to see that happening.

Corey Seager stayed hot Wednesday, finishing 2-for-4 with an RBI in a 2-0 win against the Rockies.

He collected a pair of hits in each of the Dodgers' three games against the Rockies. More of the same from the stud prospect, who's now slashing .426/.526/.617 in 13 games. This kid already looks special.

Corey Seager went 2-for-6 with a walk as the Dodgers fell 5-4 to the Rockies in 16 innings on Tuesday.

Seager gave the Dodgers hope of another comeback when he hit a one-out single in the bottom of the 16th. He would get pushed to second when Chris Heisey walked, and advanced to third base on a ground out, but the Dodgers couldn't bring him home. Seager's batting .419/.528/.628 across his first 53 plate appearances.

Corey Seager went 2-for-3 with a double and a run scored in Monday's win against the Rockies.

Seager doubled in the second inning and was stranded, then was hit by a pitch in the fourth and was also stranded. The Dodgers finally brought him home in the eighth inning in a Scott Schebler home run after Seager had singled. The rookie, considered one of baseball's best prospects, is hitting .432/.543/.676 with six doubles, a home run, seven RBI, nine runs scored, and two stolen bases in his first 11 major league games.

Corey Seager went 4-for-4 with his first major league home run, a double and a steal as the Dodgers beat the Diamondbacks 9-5 on Saturday.

Maybe Seager was just bored while putting up those pedestrian Triple-A numbers? He certainly hasn't had any problem in the majors yet, going 14-for-30 with six extra-base hits and six walks. He won't be exiting the Dodger lineup anytime soon.
Sun, Sep 13, 2015 01:35:00 AM

Corey Seager reached base four times Friday, going 1-for-1 with three walks versus the Diamondbacks.

Seager has hit in all seven of his starts to begin his career, and he's also walked six times already. There shouldn't be any taking him out of the lineup until he cools off.
