Along with AJ Pollock, Kris Bryant, Carlos Correa and (gulp), Dee Gordon, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com predicts that the Dodgers’ very own, Corey Seager will be one of the “superstars” that break through this upcoming 2016 season.

The easy going shortstop who came on strong for last year’s Dodgers is going to be entering his full season of major league baseball and it will be interesting to see how he handles the new amount of pressure that will be placed on his shoulders. Scouts will have a full off-season to watch tape and figure out what’s the best way to pitch to the kid.

    Seager seems to be a more discipline hitter than Puig and Peterson. I don’t think that pitchers will find holes in his aproach and swings like the other two. I think that he will be one of our lineup’s most feared hitters.
