Corey Seager News
Texas Rangers shortstop Corey Seager isn't in the starting lineup on Wednesday for a matchup with the New York Yankees and right-hander Domingo German. Seager is enjoying a quality first season in Texas, batting .245 with a .317 on-base percentage, 33 home runs, and three stolen bases. He'll head to the bench with Josh Smith stepping in at shortstop and batting fifth. The 24-year-old is hitting .195 with a .304 on-base percentage, two home runs, and four stolen bases in 249 plate appearances for Texas this season. Fantasy managers in search of streaming options around the infield are probably better off looking elsewhere.
Texas Rangers shortstop Corey Seager (forearm) is back in the starting lineup Friday against Reid Detmers and the Los Angeles Angels. Seager missed the previous two games due to a bruised left forearm he got after being hit by a pitch in Tuesday's game. The 28-year-old is having a nice season power-wise, smacking a career-high 32 homers. He has slowed down, however, and is slashing just .202/.257/.362 in September. Still, he should be started with confidence for the remainder of the season.
Texas Rangers shortstop Corey Seager (forearm) is not in the starting lineup on Thursday against the Seattle Mariners. Seager will miss his second straight game due to a bruised left forearm that he suffered on Tuesday. The 28-year-old remains day-to-day after X-rays came back negative on his arm. With Seager out again Thursday, rookie Josh H. Smith will start at shortstop and hit ninth in the batting order against Mariners left-hander Marco Gonzales. DFS gamers can probably do a lot better than Smith in the nine-hole on Thursday. The 25-year-old rookie has just 38 hits in his first 190 MLB at-bats this year with two home runs, 16 RBI, 22 runs scored and four stolen bases.
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.
