Corey Seager’s major-league career started with a bang, earning National League Rookie of the Year honors in 2016. He followed up with another all-star season in 2017.
After being sidelined for most of 2018 with elbow and hip surgeries, he rebounded last season to lead the National League with 44 doubles and hit a personal-best 87 RBIs.
One of the few positions the Dodgers organization haven’t been flush with all-stars during their long history has been shortstop. Pee Wee Reese, Maury Wills, and Bill Russell are the names that come to mind first when Dodgers fans think about their stars at shortstop, but the list stops after them. Seager aims to be the next Dodgers superstar at the position.
Seager is the brother of Kyle Seager, a third baseman who has played nine major-league seasons with the Seattle Mariners. Their brother, Justin, was a 12th-round pick of the Mariners in 2013, and he played five minor-league seasons.
