The Los Angeles Dodgers will begin a 4-game series vs. the San Diego Padres as pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu returns to the mound. This will be Ryu’s first game back since 2014. This is also the Dodgers final home stand before the 2016 All-Star break.

Three Dodgers will be representing the organization in the 2016 midsummer classic, one being shortstop Corey Seager. During the series finale vs. the Baltimore Orioles, Seager continued to impress by extending his hitting streak to 19 consecutive games.

This is Seager’s first selection to the All-Star game and he joins teammates Clayton Kershaw and Kenley Jansen.

Although he is serving as a National League reserve, Seager has other plans while attending the All-Star game in San Diego.

Seager recently earned NL Rookie of the Month honors for the month of June, and was dubbed the best shortstop in the NL by manager Dave Roberts. After hearing the news, Seager spoke with TWC SportsNetLA reporter Alanna Rizzo about what it means to be selected.

The 2016 All-Star game is on July 12 in San Diego and will be shown at 5PM PT on FOX.

    So Seager feels that he can do what some veterans like Agon could not do, and that is recover your natural swing that has put you on the ALL STAR team, after partisipating in the HR derby contest. I will be surprised if his second half of the season is anywhere near the first half. What’s  the definition for lnsanity? Why try it? His post All Star stats will make him look like someone else.
