Corey Seager News
Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said on Sunday that it's likely that shortstop Corey Seager (hand) will head out on a rehab assignment before returning to the active roster. Seager is currently at the Dodgers training facility center in Arizona and has continued to progress towards his return. Seager has been sidelined since May 16 with a fractured right hand. The Dodgers are without outfielders Mookie Betts (hip), Cody Bellinger (hamstring) and middle infielder Gavin Lux (hamstring) at the moment and can certainly use Seager's help at the moment. The upcoming free agent was hitting .265 with four home runs and 22 RBI in 147 at-bats before his injury.
Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he's "not sure" when shortstop Corey Seager (hand) will be activated. "There are a lot of moving parts, but ultimately we are not there yet." Roberts indicated on Monday that Seager could be activated from the 10-day injured list as soon as Wednesday. The 27-year-old has been sidelined since mid-May with a fractured right hand. Seager will continue to ramp up his activity and look to rejoin the Dodgers shortly. The 2020 World Series MVP slashed .265/.361/.422 with four homers, 22 RBI, 20 runs scored, and one stolen base across 169 plate appearances before landing on the IL. Fantasy managers should continue to stash Seager as he could be a difference-maker for the final two months of the regular season.
Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager (hand) could be activated from the injured list as soon as Wednesday, according to manager Dave Roberts. Seager's live batting practice session went well on Monday. Fantasy managers will be pretty happy to know that Seager doesn't look like he'll need a minor league rehab assignment before returning to the lineup. It may have something to do with the fact that Gavin Lux, who had been filling in at the 6 for Seager, just landed on the injured list on Monday. If he isn't already, Seager needs to be owned in all fantasy leagues, despite the fact that he had a pedestrian .265/.361/.422 slash line with four home runs and 22 RBI in 147 at-bats before his injury.
Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager had a significant power outbreak in 2020 and his fantasy owners loved everything about it. From 2017 through 2019, Seager never posted a slugging percentage above .483 and never registered a barrel rate above 8.5%. In 2020, Seager went on to slug .585 with a 15.8% barrel rate, which ranked amongst the top 5% of the league. He also had a ridiculous hard-hit rate of 55.9%, which ranked amongst the top 2% of the league and absolutely dwarfed his 2019 hard-hit rate of 38.2%. With 15 home runs and 41 RBI in 52 games last year, Seager was on a ridiculous 162-game pace of about 46 home runs and 127 RBI. He's never hit more than 26 home runs in a season and his career high in RBI is 87. Granted, he's had multiple seasons cut short by injuries, but last year remains a striking anomaly regardless. Seager is a career .295 hitter and he should be right around that mark in 2021. Expect him to hit around 25 home runs in 2021 if he can stay healthy but it's extremely risky to chase the power numbers he flashed in the shortened 2020 season. Don't reach for him in the second round, but if he's there in the late third and you haven't taken a shortstop yet, he's a solid target.
