Corey Seager’s long-awaited debut in the Majors came Sept. 3 with the Los Angeles Dodgers in San Diego for a three-game series with the Padres. While the prized shortstop prospect figured to be among the September call-ups, Seager’s promotion was accelerated a bit due to multiple injuries.

In his time up, the 21 year old has done nothing but validate the lofty expectations placed on his young shoulders. Seager started at shortstop in his debut and went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBIs. The following night he slid over to third base, collected two more hits and one RBI.

However, if he hadn’t had one yet, Saturday’s game against the Arizona Diamondbacks was Seager’s coming out party. All he did was go 4-for-4 with three RBIs and four runs scored; he added a stolen base and drew a walk for good measure.

Included in the four hits was a fifth double in nine games and Seager’s first home run in the Majors. A monumental moment in his young career, the Dodgers initially gave Seager the silent treatment after he rounded the bases and went back to the dugout.

Seager finished the night having reached safely in his last nine consecutive plate appearances. He enteres play Sunday hitting a blistering .467/.568/.733 in 30 at-bats.
