Dodgers all-time mock draft: Corey Seager
Corey Seager still has plenty to prove, bu the young shortstop is the best positional player among Dodgers first round picks. Selected with the 18th overall pick in 2012, Seager joined a legendary list of players to win Rookie of the Year with “LA” on their caps.
After his rookie campaign in 2016, it seemed anything was possible for the North Carolina product. In his first full season in the majors, he batted .308/.365/.512 while smashing 26 home runs and driving in 72 RBIs. He was a Silver Slugger Award winner at shortstop, a National League All-Star, and finished third in MVP voting. What a start to his career!
Unfortunately, a major elbow injury in 2018 slowed down his meteoric rise, but last season, he was back at it again, leading the National League with 44 doubles during another impressive season at the plate.
Only 26-year-old, Seager is ready to take the next step as one of the game’s best shortstops. He will pair with rookie Gavin Lux to create a double-play combo that should man the middle of the infield at Dodger Stadium for years to come.
