Corey Seager News
Texas Rangers shortstop Corey Seager added to his impressive hardware for the 2023 season after winning a World Series title and World Series MVP for the second time in his career, as he was named the American League's Silver Slugger award winner on Thursday. He did it by recording 33 home runs, 96 RBI, 88 runs scored and an AL-high 42 doubles in the regular season to win his third Silver Slugger of his career. Seager did it despite missing nearly six weeks due to injuries. He finished second in the AL in batting average (.327), slugging percentage (.623) and OPS (1.013). The rest of the AL winners were Rays first baseman Yandy Diaz, Rangers second baseman Marcus Semien, Red Sox third baseman Rafael Devers, White Sox outfielder Luis Robert Jr., Mariners outfielder Julio Rodriguez, Astros outfielder Kyle Tucker, Orioles catcher Adley Rutschman, Angels DH Shohei Ohtani and Orioles utility Gunnar Henderson.
Texas Rangers shortstop Corey Seager helped the Rangers win their first-ever World Series title on Wednesday night by beating the Arizona Diamondbacks, and he also was named World Series MVP for the second time in his career, becoming just the fourth player in MLB history to do so. Seager and Reggie Jackson are the only two players to have ever won two World Series MVP awards with two different teams, with Seager's first coming in 2020 with the Los Angeles Dodgers. He also won the NLCS MVP that year. The 29-year-old lefty slugger went deep in three of the five games of the Fall Classic and went 6-for-21 (.286) with three home runs, a double, three walks, six RBI and six runs scored in total in the series. Seager now has two World Series titles, two World Series MVPs, the 2020 NLCS MVP, the 2016 NL Rookie of the Year award, two Silver Sluggers and four All-Star appearances.
Texas Rangers shortstop Corey Seager had a history-making performance on Sunday, going 0-for-1 with five walks and two runs scored in an 11-8 victory over the Baltimore Orioles. Seager became the first player to ever walk five times in one playoff game, and in doing so he led the Rangers to a 2-0 series lead. The O's just didn't want to mess with Seager in this one, which is fair given his second-place finishes in AVG, OPS, and SLG in the AL this season. Unfortunately for them, the rest of the Rangers lineup is also pretty ferocious and took advantage.
It was a great debut season in a Rangers' uniform for Seager, who slashed .245/.309/.455 with 33 homers, 91 runs, 84 RBI, and three steals. It was his third straight season with a barrel rate above 10% and a contact rate above 70%, not something many hitters have been able to accomplish. Seager is a great hitter who often gets overlooked in fantasy because of the lack of steals. The major thing working in Seager's favor for 2023 is the shift ban. No hitter hit more ground balls and line drives into the shift in 2022, so his BABIP should be on the upswing now that teams can't do that when he's in the box. Given his great power and strong contact ability, the ceiling is really high for Seager this year. He's a 30+ homer guy, and a .280 batting average is well within reach now as well. Add on to that that the Rangers have an above-average lineup and should be a competitive team this year, and we could be looking at a huge season for Seager. He's a spectacular shortstop pick after pick 60.
