Brothers Corey and Kyle Seager are both having great 2016 seasons. Corey, who appears to be a lock for National League Rookie of the Year, has been a key factor in the Dodgers’ quest for the NL West Division title. Kyle is having his best major-league season of his six-year major-leaguer career.
As of September 24, the brothers have been able to post similar numbers at the hash-line level: Corey with .370/.514/.884, while Kyle with .363/.508/.871. But Corey leads in batting average (.310 to .281) and runs scored (102 to 86), while Kyle leads in home runs (29 to 25) and RBI (96 to 70).

Major League Baseball’s history has plenty of brothers who made a name for themselves in the big leagues. Brothers’ names like DiMaggio, Ripken, Alou, Niekro, and Boyer fill the history books.
Kyle Seager, a third baseman who currently plays for the Seattle Mariners, is in his fifth big league season and has already made a name for himself as a slugger. His younger brother, shortstop Corey Seager, is rapidly rising through the Los Angeles Dodgers organization and could make their big league roster sometime during the season.
By the way, the brothers happen to have another sibling, Justin, who is in his third season in the Mariners farm system, so there’s more to come with this family.
