Kyle Seager’s Success with the Mariners

Kyle Seager has been huge for the Mariners since he was called up in 2012. His rookie season he hit .259 with 20 home runs and 86 RBI’s. Since then his career has only been on the rise. One of the most impressive things about Kyle Seager is the fact that he has managed to stay healthy every year and rarely takes a day off.

In 2012 he played in 155 games, 2013 that number went to 160, 2014 he was in 159 games and last season he played in 160 games.

In 2014, Kyle Seager was honored with an All-Star game selection and a Gold Glove which he well deserved.

Managers must have to bribe Kyle Seager to sit on the bench occasionally. The man has been a steady constant offensive player in their lineup day in and day out. When the baseball season consists of 162 games and you can count on Kyle Seager being in it every day, well your chances of winning the game just greatly increased.

The quiet and calm third baseman is a game changer for the team and always has been. In 2014, Kyle Seager was honored with an All-Star game selection and a Gold Glove which he well deserved. In December of the same year, he signed a seven year, $100 million dollar deal with the club.

This year is no different for Kyle. He has played in 90 games so far and is currently hitting .287. In those 90 games, the 28 year old has 18 home runs, 26 doubles and 61 RBI’s. On April 25, this year he hit his 100th career home run against the Houston Astros.

It does not matter who the Mariners are facing that day, you can guarantee that Kyle Seager will be in the lineup and showing off whether it is with his bat or his glove.
