Corey Seager News
Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder/first baseman Cody Bellinger and shortstop Corey Seager will get the day off on Sunday against the Rockies. It's a bit annoying, considering both guys are off to good starts at the plate, particularly Seager, who has eight hits in three games, but manager Dave Roberts said he wants to get his guys rest early on in the season. It's something he also did on Saturday when Mookie Betts, Justin Turner, and Will Smith were all on the bench. Those three will return to Sunday's lineup, with Smith slated to be behind the plate. Roberts also said that Smith would be behind the plate for the first and third games in Oakland.
Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager was 3-for-5 with an RBI, a walk, and three runs scored during Friday's 11-6 win over the Colorado Rockies. The 26-year-old was phenomenal during the 2020 campaign, slashing .307/.358/.585 with 15 homers and 41 RBI. Seager has had multiple hits in both of his games so far in 2021, so he is off to a good pace. Start him with confidence each time he takes the field.
Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager continued his monstrous spring performance on Sunday. Seager went 1-for-2 with a home run, his major-league-leading sixth of the spring, in a 10-4 loss to the Giants. The 26-year-old is picking up right where he left off after last year's strong regular and postseason performance- as he is seeing the baseball really well right now. Seager posted career-best numbers in barrel rate, exit velocity, expected batting average and slugging percentage, and hard-hit percentage, seemingly backing up the strong numbers he put up. As a result, he won't come cheap in drafts- 34 ADP- though fantasy managers can reasonably expect 30-plus homers, 80-plus runs and RBI, and a good batting average to boot, provided he stays healthy.
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.
