Hitter of the Week – Corey Seager
Corey Seager did an interview with Dodgers Nation on April 25, while he was on the disabled list. Since that interview, Seager has hit .447 in 85 at-bats. You’re welcome. In all seriousness, Seager has been unbelievable since coming off the disabled list and is batting .576/.588/.1061 over the past week. He has 10 extra-base hits in his last eight games, with seven doubles and three home runs. Seager now leads the minor leagues with 20 doubles and is tied for 10th with a .371 batting average. I doubt he’ll spend much more time in Rancho.
Pitcher of the Week – Julio Urias
It’s been an up and down season for Julio Urias, who was challenged with an assignment to High A at the ripe old age of 17. He’s struggled with his control and has given up hits in bunches. But, in his last start, Urias looked like his old self. He went five innings and allowed just two baserunners while striking out five. He now has 34 strikeouts in 30.2 innings, though he’s also issued 15 walks. Urias has done a great job of keeping the ball on the ground and allowed only one home run. There’s no need to rush him, as he won’t turn 18 until August.
