What Can Baseball Expect From Dodgers Shortstop Corey Seager?



Based on Seager’s minor league numbers, his short season performance in 2015 in the majors, his family lineage and his brother Kyle Seager’s performance, coupled with the longer Major League season, here are DodgersNation.com projections for Corey Seager in 2016.

Corey Seager 2016 DodgersNation.com projections (age 22 season):

PA       R         H         2B       3B       HR      RBI     SB       CS       AVG   OBP    SLG

650      95        175        41         8           25         99         15         2          .299     .390     .530

We believe that Corey Seager has the character make-up to be great baseball player both on and off the field for a long time. Corey Seager’s older brothers sure think Corey Seager is top notch, which you can read about here, here, and here. As far as comparisons go, we may be just too soon to project that Corey Seager will be like Cal Ripken Jr., Alex Rodriguez, Mike Trout, and Bryce Harper. Carlos Correa is the more likely comparison, but even he has nearly a full year more of service time than Seager. Regardless, many folks are thinking very high on Corey Seager. We wish him the best for 2016 and beyond.

  1. Seager has a few things going for him.  He has an older brother who has made the transition from hype to $100MM contract.  If things go sideways, Kyle will always be there for Corey.  Seager will have a coaching crew that will be more supportive and more hands on than the previous regime.  Roberts is a master communicator and motivator, and Chris Woodward is an outstanding infield coach.  Woody has already spoken to Kyle about Corey, and should be able to better relate than Lorenzo Bundy or Davey Lopes.  Corey’s upbringing will help to keep him grounded.  Corey will not let any success go to his head.  I do not know if Seager will win the ROY, Steven Matz also has hype as does Trea Turner.  But that is not what will drive him.  I cannot remember the last time I was this excited about a rookie position player (maybe Piazza).
