Everyone’s high on Corey Seager. Everyone. MLB Pipeline announced that Seager was the number one prospect in baseball, and the Los Angeles Dodgers have to be absolutely pleased to hear that. However, that’s not the only praise that Seager has earned lately.

At Fan Fest today, Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez took things to a whole new level when it came to speaking in a positive way about the young shortstop.

From Bill Shaikin (@BillShaikin) of the Los Angeles Times on Twitter:

Oh, is that all? Adrian Gonzalez, quite profoundly, said that he could see Corey Seager “being a Hall of Famer in the future.” That’s not even just high praise. In fact, think of something higher than high and that’s the praise that Gonzalez heaped onto Seager’s shoulders.

In 113 plate appearances last season, Seager put up a slash line of .337/.425/.561 while slugging four home runs, accumulating 17 runs batted in, and scoring 17 runs himself. He was a whirlwind of talent in September, and the Dodgers are hoping he can provide something close to those same results again.

At the rate Seager’s being built up by everyone, he might be able to run for president by the time his rookie year is over, 35-year old requirement be damned.

It’s a huge feather in Seager’s cap to know that Gonzalez thinks this highly of him, but now he must follow through and show he’s deserving of the acclaim.

    Seager has great potential. That his older brother is an All Star 3rd baseman and infielder and they are reportedly very close has to help him understand how to mentally prepare and also how to talk and present himself to the media and his teammates. The Media, fans, Groupies and Clubhouse all huge changes once a Minor League Player gets to the Show. 
    This young man showed a lot of us his potential last September. I really like his quiet batting stance. Not too much movement and a very clean path to the ball with his bat. That showed in his ability to make contact and display some power. As he is young and has a large frame he will probably fill out a bit and get more power. 
    I think he may even match the Hype around him which would be awesome…
