The 26 boys in blue to land on the disabled list could make any Dodger fan begin to feel sorrow for their team; however, players like Corey Seager keep getting in the way of their sadness. Seager has been the most consistent bat all year for the Dodgers and was the only non-pitcher to represent the team in the 2016 All-Star Game. Well, I hope you’re not about to grab tissues after the Bud Norris news because Corey Seager has given us yet another reason to smile!
On Saturday, Corey Seager hit his 31st double of the season! Why is this such a big deal you might ask? His 31 doubles is now a new record for the most doubles hit in a season by a Dodger rookie.
Corey Seager just broke Eric Karros' Dodgers rookie record for most doubles in a season (31). Karros is here calling game for FS1

Double No. 31 ?

The previous title holder, Eric Karros, happened to be calling the game on Saturday for FS1! MLB showed us video of the two rookie sensations hitting some powerful doubles back-to-back. Take a look!
Again, Corey Seager has been giving Dodger fans reason to cheer all season long. His resume has grown almost endless, but some of the highlights include most home runs by a Dodger short stop, 2nd longest hit streak by a Dodgers rookie, and so much more!
Corey Seager's 19th home run ties Hanley Ramirez for most in a season by LA Dodger SS.

Corey Seager leads #Dodgers in hits. He'd be 5th rookie in team history to do that. Last: Raul Mondesi. First: Jackie Robinson.

From Dodgers PR: Corey Seager leads the club in hits, runs and home runs. No Dodgers rookie has done that since Jackie Robinson in 1947.

2nd longest hitting streak by a #Dodgers rookie. Tommy Davis holds the record with 20 game hit streak.

Above all, I think fans smile the hardest for Corey Seager when they think about what his future holds. Seager is a mere 22 years old and already plays like he has been in the bigs for a decade. His approach to the plate and ability to make adjustments is exciting to watch. Corey Seager’s future is so bright that it is blinding; I’m just thankful that I am here to witness it!
