Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager was recently named the starting shortstop, and he has picked up the pace in the latter part of spring training in terms of workload. He started Sunday's Freeway Series exhibition game, posting six assists without an error. Seager was slowed in the early part of spring training as a precaution, making his way back from reconstructive elbow and hip surgeries. However, barring any setbacks, it's expected he'll bounce back with a .300 average, 25-30 homers and 70-80 RBI while flirting with triple digits in runs scored.
Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager (elbow, hip) hit a home run off Cubs starter Cole Hamels in his first Cactus League start on Wednesday night. It was Seagers first professional game since two surgeries limited him to 26 games in 2018. Batting third, Seager finished the night going 1-for-2 with a sacrifice fly, giving him two RBI on the night. Perhaps more important (even for fantasy purposes) was Seagers mobility playing the field. He smoothly turned a double play, saying later, "it was really nice to make that and not have to worry about it. Seager was the Rookie of the Year in 2016 and slashed .303/.370/.496 over his first two full seasons. Hell likely be a top five producer at his position, but is not generating much excitement because of his injuries. Wise fantasy players will remember his most important number: 25, the age he will turn in April. Don't sleep on his potentially epic comeback.
Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager (elbow, hip) is scheduled to make his Cactus League debut on Wednesday night and play in seven innings. Despite missing most of last season due to elbow and hip surgeries, Seager is still one of the most attractive offensive bets at his position. 2019 might be the year to get him on the cheap and hope he rebounds into a top-five fantasy shortstop. The 24-year-old posted back-to-back 20-plus homer seasons in 2016 and 2017 and drove in a combined 149 runs in that span.
