It’s been quite a year for Los Angeles Dodgers prospect Corey Seager so far in 2015.
He was invited to big-league camp in the spring and enjoyed some success with the Dodgers, showing patience at the plate and the ability to handle the shortstop position. He is expected to be the team’s shortstop of the future and began the year in Double-A before being promoted to Triple-A after 20 games.
On Monday night, Seager came to bat in the first inning and hit his first home run since joining the OKC Dodgers:
After hitting .375 with five home runs in Double-A, the 21-year-old has struggled a bit in the higher leager. He’s currently hitting .250 with 14 strikeouts in 22 games. He could be getting more comfortable at the plate though because he came to bat again in the same game and delivered his second home run of the day:
If Seager can continue to figure it out in Triple-A, it wouldn’t be surprising to see him called up this September when the rosters expand. Barring injury, that would be the earliest we could see the Dodgers top prospect in the Majors.
