Interestingly enough, a 22-year-old baseball player believes he will get better.
That man is 2016 Rookie of The Year Corey Seager. Seager told Dave Roberts that despite one of the best rookie seasons in the sport’s history, he never hit his peak.
Corey Seager told Dave Roberts he never had his "A-swing" in 2016, which is bonkers.

Obviously Seager is expected to improve, but if what he says is true, it should be tantalizing to the Dodgers organization. Seager was a top three MVP candidate in his first full season. When he consistently maintains his “A-swing,” in addition to his natural progression, Seager could become one of the best players in the franchise’s history. He’s already one of the top budding stars of the sport.

If the Dodgers are going to break through in the postseason, Seager will be a big reason why. Even as the bats struggled in the early innings of the Nationals NLDS series, Seager produced. He’s one of the favorites for MVP in 2017, and the hopes of America’s second largest market rest on his shoulders.
No pressure, kid.
