Man oh man, is it going to be fun watching Corey Seager playing in Dodger Blue for years to come. So far this year, he has silenced any thought of a sophomore slump and further supplanted himself as one of the top players in the game today. Through April, Seager has been better than advertised and an important part of the dynamic duo on the left side of the infield.

In April, Seager owned a .319/.411/.549 slash line which is, well, pretty elite. He also tied for the team lead in home runs with five, which, is also pretty good.

To put his start to the season in a few words, he is very good. He has definitely put himself in the superstar conversation and has even made an argument to be the future face of the franchise as my colleague Hector Ponce talked about.

Having a young stud that plays the most important position in the infield is always great, but having one that puts himself in the MVP conversation year in and year out is terrific. We definitely have been spoiled by the 23-year-old’s spectacular play, and it will be fun to see what he can bring to the team for the rest of the season. As amazing as Corey has been this season, the man to his right on the field was and has been even more spectacular.
