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.
