Corey Seager’s Success with the Dodgers
Well, how has Corey Seager not been key to the Dodgers? I mean the 22 year old rookie has only led the team in every offensive category, was named an All-Star and is in second for most doubles in the National League.
There is no doubt about it, Corey Seager is not only meeting those expectations, he is exceeding them. The steady and calm rookie never seems to be shaken, like he was born for the spotlight. He simply steps in that batters box and helps his team win games. Sunday afternoon he doubled three times and tied a Dodgers franchise record. This feat was last accomplished by Justin Turner on April 19, 2015.
Corey Seager is on pace to shatter records considering he has already hit 27 this season.
Corey Seager is only only breaking franchise records, but he is on his way to shattering rookie records. Johnny Frederick holds the Dodgers franchise rookie record for doubles when he hit 52 in 1929. When it comes to the LA Dodgers, Eric Karros holds that record with 30 doubles he hit in 1992.
Corey Seager is on pace to shatter records considering he has already hit 27 this season. Sibling rivalry runs deep. Whether he knows it or not, after Sunday’s game Corey Seager has now hit one more double than big brother Kyle Seager.
Through 92 games this season, Corey is hitting .297 with 17 home runs, 42 RBI’s and he has walked 34 times. Walks are important in my opinion, especially as a rookie. It proves just how patient Corey is at the plate and the fact that he knows the strike zone well. He currently has a slight edge on his oldest brother Kyle when it comes to the stats. Either way, both brothers have been difference makers for their clubs all season.
