Dodgers: Three Takeaways From the Dodgers’ Weekend Series in Frisco
Corey Seager is Back
It took a few months, but Corey Seager is finally back to his pre-surgery form. As expected after two surgeries, it took Seager a little time to get back into the swing of things. In April he hit just .240 and his power was absent with just one home run and a .354 slugging percentage. This series, Corey went 7-12 including a 4-5 game on Saturday.
In the month of June, Seager is hitting above .400 with a slugging percentage of .688. He has also hit noticeably better against left-handed pitching which has been a signature of his career. Earlier this season when things weren’t going right for Corey, he was struggling worse against southpaw pitching. Now he has turned the corner and is slugging well no matter who is on the mound.
Cody Bellinger has “cooled off” lately and the Giants had no problem intentionally walking Cody to get to Seager. With Seager’s bat back to life, pitchers will have to think twice in picking their poison. The Dodgers’ lineup has yet to reach its full potential due to slow starts and a few injuries, but that could change with Seager back.
