Corey Seager is getting the day off Monday against the Pirates.
It's a quick turnaround for the Dodgers, who are playing at 12:35 PM ET after a night game on Sunday. Seager has appeared in all but one game this season with his last day off coming on April 15. The 22-year-old has contributed All-Star numbers this year with 16 HR and a .298 batting average in 299 at-bats. Chris Taylor will handle shortstop duties Monday while batting eighth against Bucs left-hander Francisco Liriano. Jun 27 - 10:07 AM

Corey Seager went 3-for-4 and hit his 16th homer Wednesday against the Nationals.

16 homers in 287 at-bats for Seager. Last year, he had 13 in 421 at-bats while playing in the PCL, so it seemed like it would be a while before he was going to chase 20 homers, much less 30, in the majors. Alas, here he is, on pace for 35. We don't expect him to keep that up, but he has a better chance of maintaining his current .289 average.
Jun 23 - 1:55 AM

Corey Seager went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Monday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

Seager burned Zack Greinke for the solo bomb with one out in the fifth inning. It was his 15th homer of the season. He is slashing .284/.344/.520 over 250 at-bats. That he is still just 22 years old makes his early success all the more impressive.
Jun 14 - 1:15 AM

Corey Seager is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rockies.

Just a day of rest for Seager, the first he has seen in the last 29 games. Kike Hernandez will start at shortstop in his place and is batting leadoff.
Jun 8 - 6:07 PM

Corey Seager had his third multi-homer game of the 2016 season as the Dodgers clobbered the Braves 12-6 on Sunday.

The 22-year-old belted a pair of homers against the Cardinals on May 15, then hit three balls over the wall against these same Braves on Friday. His fourth inning blast off Matt Wisler was a solo shot that put the Dodgers ahead 8-2. He later added a two-run shot off Alexi Ogando in the seventh to cap off his club's scoring. Seager finished the afternoon 3-for-5 with four RBI and is now hitting .286/.341/.533 with 14 homers and 35 RBI on the season.
Jun 5 - 7:40 PM

Corey Seager hit three homers Friday to lead the Dodgers past the Braves 4-2.

All three were solo shots, as he never got to hit with anyone on base tonight. Seager is up to 12 homers already, which is definitely more than was expected from him as a 22-year-old. He didn't hit for the kind of average many anticipated early on, but he's been a lot better there over the last month (.321 in 112 AB since May 7).
Jun 4 - 1:06 AM

Corey Seager went 3-for-5 with a three-run home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's 5-0 win over the Cubs.

Seager had a couple hits and a run scored before launching a three-run shot in the ninth to extend the Dodgers' lead. The homer was his ninth of the season, giving him 27 RBI. Seager has largely been as advertised in his rookie year, batting .278/.333/.474 while batting near the top of the Dodgers' lineup on a daily basis.
May 31 - 11:33 PM

Corey Seager clubbed his fifth and sixth home runs of the season on Sunday, but it wasn't enough for the Dodgers to overcome the visiting Cardinals.

It's the first multi-homer game for Seager, who accounted for all of the Dodgers offensive output in this one. His solo shot off Mike Leake tied the game at 1-1 in the third inning. He replicated the feat off of Kevin Siegrist in the eighth, pulling the Dodgers to within three runs at 5-2, but that's as close as they would get. Seager is off to a terrific start at the plate, slashing .284/.342/.475 with six homers, 19 RBI and one stolen base.
May 15 - 11:11 PM

Corey Seager went 3-for-4 with a solo homer and two RBI in Saturday's win over the Cardinals.

Fine work by Seager, who hit an RBI single off of Cardinals starter Carlos Martinez in the fifth inning and smacked a solo home run off of reliever Dean Kiekhefer in the seventh. The 22-year-old shortstop is swinging a scalding stick right now and has notched multi-hit performances in five of his last eight games. Saturday's showing moved his triple-slash to .282/.342/.457 over 138 at-bats. It would have been difficult to pry Seager from an owner even prior to the recent hot stretch. The window is rapidly closing.
May 15 - 12:32 AM

Corey Seager went 2-for-4 and homered versus the Mets on Wednesday.

Seager has done a fair amount of sitting against lefties recently, but that should stop soon. He's up to .272 with a .773 OPS for the year now, and he's done quite well in his time versus southpaws (.273/.324/.485 in 33 at-bats).
May 12 - 1:43 AM

Corey Seager is not in Monday's lineup versus the Mets.

He's sitting against southpaw Steven Matz. Charlie Culberson will start at shortstop.
May 9 - 5:55 PM

After sitting against a left-hander Tuesday, Corey Seager started against one Wednesday and contributed a double and two walks against the Rays.

Seager is hitting .252/.322/.398 in 103 at-bats, which, while not up to expectations, is hardly a disaster. He still has some work to do before earning an everyday spot near the top of the Dodgers' lineup, but he'll get there before the year is out.
May 4 - 11:04 PM

Corey Seager is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Rays.

He's sitting against southpaw Matt Moore. Charlie Culberson will start at shortstop and bat ninth.
May 3 - 2:19 PM

Corey Seager is not in Monday's lineup against the Marlins.

He'll get a day off with lefty Wei-Yin Chen on the mound. Charlie Culberson will start at shortstop and bat eighth.
Apr 25 - 6:06 PM

Corey Seager went 2-for-5 and drove home three runs, leading the Dodgers to a come-from-behind 12-10 victory over the Rockies at Coors Field on Sunday.

Seager tripled home a pair of runs in the third inning that increased the Dodgers advantage to 7-1. He later added an RBI double as part of a five-run uprising in the ninth inning that gave the Dodgers the victory. Seager is now slashing .257/.317/.432 with 12 RBI on the young season.
