The BBWAA on Monday announced that Corey Seager was chosen as the National League Rookie of the Year.
He was the unanimous winner, receiving all 30 first-place votes. Trea Turner finished a distant second, followed by Kenta Maeda. It was truly a remarkable first full major league season for Seager, who was also a finalist for NL MVP. He put up a .308/.365/.512 batting line with 26 homers and 72 RBI over 687 plate appearances for the Dodgers. Nov 14 - 6:27 PM

Corey Seager was named the winner of the 2016 Players Choice Award for NL Outstanding Rookie.

Seager may well be adding an even shinier piece of hardware to his trophy shelf in short order, but even if he loses out on the NL Rookie of the Year to Trea Turner or Kenta Maeda, he can take solace in the fact that he received the love of the players. The 22-year-old shortstop slashed .308/.365/.512 with 26 homers and 72 RBI over 627 at-bats last season.
Nov 9 - 8:44 PM

The BBWAA announced Monday that Corey Seager, Trea Turner and Kenta Maeda are finalists for the National League Rookie of the Year award.

Good for Turner and Maeda for finishing in the top three, but Seager is going to win this thing running away. The dynamic 22-year-old finished his first full big league season with a .308/.365/.512 batting line, 26 home runs and 72 RBI. He's going to be one of the best players in baseball for a long time.
Nov 7 - 6:33 PM

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Monday that moving Corey Seager to third base if impending free agent Justin Turner departs is "not even on our radar."

Seager is really big for a shortstop and the common feeling as he came up through the minors was that he was destined for third base in the long term. However, defensive metrics actually graded him quite well at shortstop this season, so it's not surprising that the Dodgers aren't in any rush to move him off the position. Seager is the heavy favorite to win National League Rookie of the Year honors.

Corey Seager rattled off three singles Tuesday in the Dodgers' NLCS Game 3 win over the Cubs.

His first single in the bottom of the third inning against Jake Arrieta plated Andrew Toles from second base and set the tone for the 6-0 victory. Seager is still batting just .206 in this postseason, but he did homer twice in the NLDS versus Washington and the 22-year-old shortstop had no trouble with a Cy Young Award winner on Tuesday. He'll carry quick-strike ability through the rest of this best-of-seven and possibly into the World Series.
Oct 18 - 11:42 PM

Corey Seager went deep again in Game 2 of the NLDS, but it wasn't enough to lead the Dodgers past the Nationals.

Seager became the youngest player in Dodgers' postseason history to homer with his first-inning blast in Game 1, and he did his damage again in his first at-bat on Sunday, victimizing Tanner Roark this time around. It was Seager's lone hit in five at-bats in the contest.
Oct 9 - 5:05 PM

Corey Seager belted a solo homer in the third inning on Friday, helping to lead the Dodgers to a victory over the Nationals in Game 1 of the NLDS.

Seager's blast off of Nationals' starter Max Scherzer opened the scoring in the first inning, giving the Dodgers a lead that they wouldn't relinquish. He finished the afternoon 1-for-4 and scored a pair of runs.
Oct 7 - 9:26 PM

Corey Seager is not in the Dodgers' lineup Thursday.

The Dodgers are also resting Adrian Gonzalez, Yasmani Grandal, Chase Utley and Josh Reddick against Padres lefty Christian Friedrich. They have Charlie Culberson at shortstop, Howie Kendrick at first base, Enrique Hernandez at second and Yasiel Puig in right field.

Corey Seager smashed a game-tying home run in the ninth inning on Sunday, which ultimately led to the Dodgers defeating the Rockies 4-3.

Seager tied the game at 2-2 with a run-scoring triple in the seventh inning. He then tagged Rockies closer Adam Ottavino for the game-tying blast with two outs in the ninth inning to force extras, where Charlie Culberson socked a walk-off homer in the 10th. Seager finished the day 3-for-5 and is now hitting a robust .313/.371/.523 with 26 homers and 72 RBI on the season.
Sep 25 - 8:23 PM

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.
Sep 21 - 2:19 AM

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.
Sep 12 - 10:45 PM

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.
Sep 5 - 11:37 PM

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.
Aug 31 - 12:21 PM

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.
