BP Annual Player Comments

2019  Due to publishing agreements, the 2019 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2019 book (available in hardcopy, and soon e-book and Kindle).
2018 Players who notch top-three MVP seasons as rookies tend to set themselves up for unreasonably high expectations, but Seager managed to not disappoint in a stellar encore performance. Another good-enough effort at shortstop will forestall for another year, maybe more, talk of a wander down the defensive spectrum. Paired with a top-three TAv at the position, the effort drove a best-in-class WARP among six-spotters. His contact rate backed up a bit in the service of hitting balls in the air more often, but other than picking nits on the margins of that, Seager displayed encouraging growth across the board. He's already halfway to his brother's career WARP total in about a third as many games, and appears poised to anchor the roster for at least the next several years.
2017 The Good: Seager lived up to enormous hype. He entered 2016 as the top-ranked prospect in baseball and showed he could avoid a shift down the defensive spectrum for at least for a few years. He also set a Dodgers record for home runs by a shortstop in his first full season and, along with Justin Turner, was the lifeblood of the Dodgers offense. He finished just a few shades of WARP behind his brother despite the age and experience gap between them, and was edged out of a top-10 WARP season by teammate Yasmani Grandal. The Bad: Time is a slow and inexorable march towards death. Every day that we delight in the pleasures of Seager's athletic prowess is another day closer to having him no longer. The Ugly: Not Seager. That's a handsome man. Damn.
2016 Seager was a card-carrying member of the Too Big To Stay At Shortstop Club, hanging out with Xander Bogaerts and Carlos Correa as visions of a move to third base danced in scouts' heads. Maybe that shift will come someday, but for now Seager looks just fine at short, and that upgrades him from “great” to “elite” on the prospect scale. He dominated in Tulsa and hit well in Oklahoma City before Jimmy Rollins' ineptitude forced Seager to the bigs at the tender age of 21. He responded by producing nearly two WARP in just 27 games, which means that at this pace he'd only need two seasons to out-WARP older brother Kyle, who, remember, is one of the better third basemen in the league. That goal may be a bit lofty, but Corey is poised to be a key contributor for the boys in blue in 2016, and will likely open the season as the prohibitive Rookie of the Year favorite.
2015 In the Logan White era (2002 to not quite the present), the Dodgers have gone pitcher-heavy in the first round of the draft. A rare exception was Seager in 2012, which is looking like a brilliant move. The Dodgers' co-Minor League Player of the Year had success at both High-A and Double-A: He was named California League MVP despite a 38-game promotion to the Southern League. Barring anything unforeseen, he could be the first legitimate hitting prospect the Dodgers have developed in a long time. (Puig didn't need much in the way of development.) Despite the organization's insistence that he's a shortstop, he will need to move to third base at some point, though if he manages even 500 innings at short, he'll tie Cal Ripken and Andy Fox as the tallest such shortstops in MLB history.
2014 Corey has older brother Kyle's skill set, swinging heavy lumber and flashing both the leather and the cannon to stay on the left side. Seager has been young for his levels as he has climbed the minor-league ladder, and after posting nearly identical slash lines in Rookie ball and Single-A, he finally faced adversity with his initial taste of High-A. Undeterred, the Dodgers assigned Seager to the Arizona Fall League, where he was the youngest player in the circuit. He was overmatched, to be sure, but at this age the achievement is often in the matching. He'll hit and field enough for either short or third, depending on which All-Stars the Dodgers are already paying eight figures to when his time comes. Plenty of scouts will tell you Corey will be the superior Seager when it's all said and done.
2013 The younger but bigger brother of the Mariners' Kyle Seager was chosen 18th in the 2012 draft out of a North Carolina high school, and signed for an above-slot $2.35 million bonus. He sparkled in his professional debut, putting up good numbers as one of the youngest players in a hitter-friendly league. Seager is lean and athletic with very good bat speed, a knack for contact, and potentially above-average power. In the field he has quick hands, good footwork, and a strong arm that should play well at third base given the strong likelihood that he winds up there. Overall, he's easily one of the Dodgers' top prospects, and while he's years away from the majors, he's worth getting excited about.

2019-11-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)All Jordan all the time! I know everyone hates giving comps but...who would you comp Jordan Groshans to? Do you see him reaching AA next season?
(32JuanJuan23 from OvO)
I do hate giving comps. I could see something around 2019 Corey Seager or so. I'd assume give the extended absence they will take it fairly slowly with him, maybe a bit of time back in the MWL and the bulk of the season in Dunedin. That would still allow him to start in Double-A in 2021 as a 21-year-old. Not impossible he hits the ground running and makes it there by late Summer though. (Toronto Blue Jays Top 10 Chat)
2019-10-30 16:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Craig, I'm still not talking to you, but what *realistically* would be an acceptable Lindor trade package? I'm fully prepared for it to be more underwhelming than it should be. To steal from a wildly successful and rollicking podcast, Thanks, I Hate It.
(Mark from The Bad Place)
Okay, so this is picking up on a rumor that Jon Morosi was peddling that may or may not be related to what I wrote in my Dodgers 2020 Hindsight piece. Morosi, stop stealing my bits for news! Anyway, the Dodgers are interested in Lindor and I think there are two ways for Cleveland to go about it from them. One involves Corey Seager as a centerpiece. What he gives you now is the same two years of team control as Lindor, a lower ceiling (but not THAT much, he was a 5+ win player in recent memory), and lower overall cost than Lindor. I think you fill that out with maybe one other significant prospect -- Keibert Ruiz might make some sense with the ascendance of Will Smith and Ruiz's down-ish year, plus maybe a DJ Peters type? Maybe a flier like Gerardo Carrillo (one of my fav arms in that system).

If you're not going with Seager I think you look to start with May or Lux and go from there. I don't know that you get 2/3 of them and Ruiz, but you might be able to pry Jeter Downs as a future shortstop type if you're not getting Lux. The Dodgers haven't tended to part with guys that are part of the current team so I don't know if May/Lux is feasible, but you could also chase an Alex Verdugo, potentially since the team is deep in outfielders. Could also work a throw in like an Edwin Rios, who flashed briefly. Rios types aren't major additions to the deal but he's ready now-ish and could contribute as a DH/1B type. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-08-08 15:00:00 (link to chat)What is wrong with Corey Seager? He has barely been above league average(101 DRC+) this season after putting up MVP type seasons in '16-'17. He is hitting a career high amount of fly balls, but the thump just isn't there. His exit velocity is substantially down to 88.2mph, which puts him in the 34th percentile(he has been in the 87th in the past). Is he still hurt or something?
(Dylan from MA)
Yeah, I think he's been fighting a few different injuries on top of coming back from a serious one. It looked like he was getting going right before his last injury, and he's been swinging it a bit better the last few games. (Craig Goldstein)
2019-07-09 12:00:00 (link to chat)With Corey Seager at SS, do you think Gavin Lux will ultimately play 3b or 2b?
(The Colonel from Pasadena, CA)
Craig and I talked about this a fair bit Sunday. The Dodgers are his second favorite team after all. We'd both play Seager at third and Lux at SS in the post-Turner years, but think the Dodgers will play Lux at second. Could also be a scenario where they move them around some (more likely Lux), the days they want to get Muncy at second or whatever. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2019-05-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Mark: Somebody in my keeper fantasy league offered me Tatis and Julio Rodriguez for Corey Seager. I'm in full rebuild mode. Should I pull the trigger? Love your chats. Thanks. btw: he also wanted Nate Pearson too, but I said no.
(balticwolf from Bethesda MD)
You get Tatis and Rodriguez? Yes, I would do that pretty quickly. (Mark Barry)
2019-05-06 23:45:00 (link to chat)So, Corey much of this is rust and how much of it is who he actually is!?!?
(stevegoz from Chicago)
Not worried yet, he missed all of last year with two injuries and surgeries that affect different but equally critical components of the swing. It's gonna take some time to rebuild that expert-level muscle memory that big-league hitters have to have to survive big-league stuff. He's still working his counts and flashing his oppo bat path - just did it again with a pretty swing earlier against Gausman for a knock to left. Patience! (Wilson Karaman)
2019-03-11 16:00:00 (link to chat)Keeper question. 12-team 5x5 roto with OBP and SV + ½ Holds, $260 budget, keep 6 plus one minor leaguer. Definitely keeping Gallo $11, Hoskins $11, Acuna $1, Buehler $1, and Vladito as my minor leaguer. Need to choose 2 more from the following 6: $14 Puig, $9 Taillon, $7 Corey Seager, $1 Nimmo, $1 Marquez, $1 Mallex Smith. Definitely going for it this year so current year value is key. Thanks!
(Brian24 from Newport Beach, CA)
I'm not as high on Marquez as a lot of analysts seem to be because I think Coors can ruin even the best pitcher's outings a lot of the time, but $1 is too good to pass up. Taillon is probably the second, but $1 is also great value on Smith if you'd rather save the money for the auction. (Darius Austin)

(Brian24 from Newport Beach, CA)
BP staff is very much in on Marquez this year, and for a buck he's a lock. Mallex should be good for SB and BA, a good value at $1, so if you want to lock down SB and save salary, that makes sense. But if you believe in Taillon's second half, he's provide a ton of value. Puig also a nice pick in Cincinnati. Too many keeper options is a great problem to have! If this year is essential, I'd say Mallex and Marquez to give you a solid foothold on a scarce category and save your salary cap space to spend freely on "win now" pieces. (Kevin Jebens)

(dan22ke9 from Not in Neverland)
Do you give it to Josh Donaldson if he's healthy? Dude can still hit if he can stay on the field. Corey Seager also an option for injury purposes. If you want someone who just sucked, then Sonny Gray should get back to at least tolerable.

In the AL, I'd love to see Buxton prove me wrong, but I'd take Carlos Correa. He doesn't have to go .300/30 to greatly improve on his horrible .239/15 from last season. (Kevin Jebens)
2019-02-04 16:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Mike: I'm in a keeper points league where deductions for K's for hitters are minimal (-.25). I've gotten a lot of offers for Corey Seager. One of them involves W. Franco and J. Upton and a move up in the 4th rd. of the draft. 16 teams, 12 kprs. Should I stay put? My current OFs are: D. Peralta, A. Hicks, R. Laureano and Joc Pederson. (One of them goes back into the draft pool.) My prospect bench also had C. Kieboom, but it doesn't look like he'll play SS if and when he's called up. My other four kpr prospects are T.

(Craig from Philly)
Not a minor league guy, so it's impossible for me to tell. What I will say is that the in the last five years, the top prospect according to BP's lists were Corey Seager, Byron Buxton, Byron Buxton, Jurickson Profar, and (yikes) Matt Moore. If you would've predicted three of those five from two to four years out, you're a wizard.

(Riley Pint for all three.) (Bryan Grosnick)

(Illiguy from Chicago)
Are we still convinced Seager has to move off the 6-spot in the next half-dozen years? I'm not so sure I am. FRAA doesn't love him, but he's okay by some other metrics and by the eye test he's more agile and confident in his reads than he was when I saw him as a wee pup in High-A. I go with Seager and keep him there 'til he really forces the issue. (Wilson Karaman)

2015-09-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jose Peraza's bat seems pretty hollow and BABIP dependent... yet he's still just 21. Can he be the starting 2B in LA next year? Who do you think has a better shot of remaining a starting infielder, Peraza or Ketel Marte?
(Davey Lopes from Los Angeles, 1979)
You're correct about Peraza. He's going to sink or swim offensively based on his average, because he doesn't walk and much of his "power" is going to be him turning a single into a double, or a double into a triple with his legs.

That said, I would give Peraza the nod on who's more likely to develop into a starting infielder. Remember, Peraza is at second base because the Braves had Andrelton Simmons and the Dodgers have Corey Seager, not because he lacks defensive skills. Other teams would love to acquire Peraza and insert him at shortstop, where he has all the physical traits necessary to be an above-average defender.

I think the answer to your question about Peraza serving as the Dodgers' starting second baseman in 2016 depends on your timetable. Friedman (and most other GM types, these days) love to use their prospects as Plan B entering the season. Why? Because the youngster can head to the minors until he's needed; the Plan A veteran can't-he'll opt out or sign elsewhere if that's in the cards. So opening day second baseman? No; but if we're talking about from July onward? I'm inclined to say yes. (R.J. Anderson)

(Dale Sveum from Gainesville)
It depends a little bit on keeper parameters (length of contract, inflation, etc), but at this point I would go with Seager. I think that he'll have the job next year, and Russell hasn't hit well enough to climb out of the nine-hole in Joe Maddon's lineup. (Doug Thorburn)

It's going to depend who debuts in September, but right now only prospects not in the Majors I have over Moncada would be Corey Seager, Kyle Schwarber, Joey Gallo and Nomar Mazara. If you want to make the case for Giolito or Urias, I can see that too...That entire Greenville Drive infield is just a plethora of awesomeness right now. (George Bissell)

(Jung-Ho Kang from Spurgh)
Whats up JHK? I have to give it to Justin Turner, he's had an incredible year, but I'm going to be #bold here...If Hector Olivera and Corey Seager are going to come up, Turner is going to lose AB's especially against lefties (who he's hitting .122 against this year). Kang has everyday AB's locked up for the next two months with Harrison out, I think he's going to have a MONSTER second half. (George Bissell)

2015-07-13 14:30:00 (link to chat)Explain the process of how some guys aren't selected for the futures game? I heard teams can deny permission, especially if guy may get promoted soon. Is it a mix of potential, production, and cater to the host city?
(Davin from Pittsburgh)
This seems like a good starting point:

Each team can have up to 2 selections for the Futures Game, generally consisting of 1 world player, 1 USA player.

Teams can simply deny permission of a player (Dodgers and Corey Seager), or players can sit out due to injury (Cardinals and Alex Reyes). There really isn't any drawn out explanation other than this. But it's essentially the choice of the team whether they send a player selected.

Usually, you'll see two of the best prospects per team selected, but that is not always the case. They need to fill out bother rosters, and sometimes this means a player such as Kyle Farmer or Cheslor Cuthbert will be selected. - Tucker Blair (Futures Game Chat)

Who would you try to trade? Who would you drop if it comes to that?
(ravenight from Boston)
Tomas in a points league smells like trouble, given the swing and miss. For the next, say, three years only, I'd rank them Hosmer-Russell-Seager-Buxton-Souza-Tomas (Ben Carsley)

2015-06-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)Corey Seager or Byron Buxton?
(Eric from LA)
Give me Seager. I understand how exciting and electrifying Buxton can be, but I think Seager is the better bet to be above-average for the next decade. If he can stick at short for a few years, too, that's just icing on the cake. Fun fact: Zack Greinke identified Seager as the best bat prior to the draft in 2012. (J.P. Breen)
2015-06-10 14:00:00 (link to chat)How much more valuable is George Springer in a dynasty format than Corey Seager?
(Grizz from Chi)
If Seager keeps his SS eligibility, it's not much. The tipping point, though, is that Springer will provide 20+ stolen bases. Seager isn't a five-category contributor, and while I'm concerned about Springer's batting average, it's not going to drag down his value. Seager stole six bases last year and has just one this year. He's a potential stud, but I'll usually side with the five-category contributor -- unless Seager sticks at SS, obviously. I'd put Seager around 45-50 overall. Springer is 25-30 for me. (J.P. Breen)

2015-01-15 18:00:00 (link to chat)In your opinion, is Corey Seager going to be a top tier SS - or a top tier 3B? Just by looking at his size, he looks like a third baseman. If the Dodgers wish for him to play the hot corner, do you feel they will start making the transition this season?
(Doctor K from Niagara Falls)
I would lean toward third base long term, but that move may not come until after he's settled in at the big league level. There's enough in the shortstop game for Seager that he can probably make it work for a short time. (Mark Anderson)
2015-01-05 15:00:00 (link to chat)Does what you hear from scouts back up the thought that Corey Seager will be a better hitter than his brother in MLB?
(Paul from LA)
Scouts have been saying for a while that he could be better than his brother, but his brother just keeps exceeding expectations, so that's getting harder and harder to say through no fault of Corey's. I'll put it this way, Corey is more highly regarded right now than Kyle was at the same age/level etc. Take from that what you will. (Jeff Moore)
2015-01-05 15:00:00 (link to chat)thoughts on josh Bell, does he transition well to 1st, and jump to the bigs in 2015, regardless bat plays, yes? Do you envision Corey Seager taking the 3 bag for the Dodger big club sometime in 2015? Since they have Rollins, or do they keep him down for awhile longer? Thanks as always for doing the chats, and imparting your knowledge and wisdom, great job,very much appreciated!
(Dragonbreath from Gurnee, IL.)
Lets take a deep breath on Bell. A regular breath, not a dragon breath. Bell still has a ways to go, even with the bat. He's had success, but he has just a half-season of Double-A under his belt and still has a large gap between his left and right handed swings (hes better left-handed). He's also terrible at first base right now. He's like a giraffe on ice skates. Doesn't mean he can't get there, but it won't be by this summer.

That would be quick for Seager too, though he's got a better chance to pull it off than Bell. Were talking about another guy with limited Double-A experience. I guess it would depend on how desperate the Dodgers are, and Juan Uribe is doing just fine over at the hot corner. Unless something changes, I don't think we see Seager in 2015. (Jeff Moore)
2015-01-28 19:00:00 (link to chat)Does Corey Seager stay at SS?

I think he starts his MLB career as a shortstop and I think he'll be fringey there. Ultimately I still lean 3B for him but I'm unwilling to close the possibility that he sticks at short. (Mauricio Rubio)

2014-09-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any chance Corey Seager sticks at SS? Top 10 prospect next season? top 5?
(James from LA)
He does not stick at shortstop, in my opinion. Had several looks at the end of the season in Chattanooga. While his hands are generally okay and he can handle balls hit right at him with ease, he lacks the range of a ML shortstop. With that said, he should be above average at third with a plus arm. His bat is legit. Above-average hitter with plus HR pop at the highest level. It's a very enticing package. He's a role 6 player for me. My gut says he'll be around number 10 or so when we line them up this offseason. (Ethan Purser)

To be honest, he slipped my mind. I think Crawford is right up there. Tim Anderson and Corey Seager are not slouches either. Mondesi is always fresh in my mind because I watched him throughout the season and he is so far under the normal age at High-A.

Crawford has potential to be an impact bat at SS. That's a first division mold. Great defense with a great hit tool. You can't ask for much more at SS. (Tucker Blair)
2014-09-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)How good is Corey Seager? Stays at SS? Top 10 prospect next season?
(Rick from Colorado)
He's an extremely impressive physical specimen. Doesn't look like a SS, but moves very well. I don't see any reason to move him off the position for now. Usually with bigger guys, I'd worry about being able to bend over, when you're 6'4-6'5. Yet, he's fluid. The side to side range isn't great, but if he's mashing and playing 45-50 D, that's a really impressive player.

I don't think he's a top 10 prospect, but he's in the top 20 for sure. (Jordan Gorosh)

I love Seager and have since before he was drafted. I think he is capable of arriving as soon as next season, and while he lacks the impact that Baez can provide, is less of an bust candidate as well. I think he's a top 15 dynasty prospect right now. (Craig Goldstein)

Carlos Correa blows me away with his physicality and approach. Only seen a few ABs, but he's a stud. Corey Seager was really impressive. Everything just comes so easy to him. Was fine at SS. Could move to 3B long term, but the issue with big guys at SS is bending over. He had no issues doing so. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-07-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Everyone says Corey Seager will HAVE to move to 3B, but we are talking about an organization that has Hanley Ramirez at SS. Do you think it's that inevitable or have you seen any hope he could stick it out there?
(Carlos Flores from Hell)
I don't think he needs to move, at least not now. The Dodgers and Logan White have been adamant that he stick at shortstop. His glove is a 6 and he makes all the plays he can reach. The range is fringy but man, he could play shortstop for me any day. He's a better SS than Hanley is at this point. (Chris Rodriguez)
2014-07-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Corey Seager - a Stud?
(Kevin from Colorado)
True stud. 6 hit potential, 6 power potential, 6 glove, 6 arm. (Chris Rodriguez)
2014-07-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Corey Seager or Addison Russell? They seem pretty similar?
(The Dude from Office)
Different players. Russell the more athletic type, Seager more calm, cool, and collected. Both project to be plus shortstops, Russell a better chance to stick. I joked with a friend that Russell might have Derek Jeter ceiling and then a front office executive said the same thing last season, so that was cool. I like Addi a bit more. (Chris Rodriguez)
2014-07-07 11:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Corey Seager? Beast?
(Adam from NYC)
Beast. Will likely develop into an above-average third baseman with utility in both hit and power tools. First-division player and potential all-star. (Jason Parks on the Top 50)
2014-06-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Corey Seager? Any Chance he sticks at SS?
(Sam from ATL)
Seager is a large man. Like, he might be bigger than Carlos Correa. However, I do think there's a 50/50 shot he sticks at SS for 5+ years. He's someone who may jump into the top 15 prospects in the game by the middle of next year. He can flat out rake, the power is coming, and he's fluid in the field. I'm not sure how long he's going to stay there, but I do believe he makes his MLB debut at short. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-06-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)How good is Corey Seager? Can he stay at SS?
(Angelo from Nebraska)
I'm a big fan of Corey Seager. I think he's going to be a stud. But I don't think he's sticking at shortstop for much longer. FYI: Eyewitness report coming soon. (Ron Shah)
2014-06-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)You don't have to say who, but anyone on the mid-season top 50 list you strongly disagree with?
(Shawnykid23 from CT)
Not right now but I'm sure I'll disagree with some omissions rather than guys who made it. Unless Carlos Correa and Corey Seager don't make the cut. (Ron Shah)
2014-06-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Who are some prospects you like significantly more/less than others on the BP prospect team?
(Shawnykid23 from CT)
Well, I cover the same area as Chris Rodriguez, so it isn't hard to find where we disagree. I think I'm higher on Corey Seager and Hunter Renfroe than he is. Some people aren't as high on Brady Aiken as I am. (Ron Shah)
2014-06-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Corey Seager?
(Steve from Nebraska)
I really haven't seen enough of these prospects to have a great opinion on them. Sorry. I'm a fan of Seager from what I've read and the limited I have seen on video, but it's a question better-suited for the prospect team (Paul Sporer)
2014-06-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)I know fantasy questions usually suck when it comes to the prospect stuff, but I traded Corey Seager for Mark Appel at the beginning of the season. How bad did I screw up?
(Justin from Chicago, IL)
Somewhere between Bartman and Buckner. (Jeff Moore)
2014-06-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Corey Seager and his potential. Any chance he sticks at ss?
(Mitch from Atlanta)
He's going to be a very good hitter on the left side somewhere. I've read two reports from two of our scouts here at BP, both of whom I respect. One believes he'll have to move to 3B, one believes he'll be able to stay at SS, and they're far from the only ones split on the topic. That just goes to show you that we simply don't know at this point. Either way, he's going to be a good player. (Jeff Moore)
2014-05-27 11:30:00 (link to chat)How good is Corey Seager? any chance he stays at ss?
(Mike from Nebraska)
Bat is legit. Big dude, and he can really hit. Advanced approach for a guy his age. I know that Ron and Chris Rodriguez had a debate about him at SS/3B. Personally, I'm going to lean toward 3B, as he has some trouble bending over. Just slide him there, and let the bat manifest. Reward will still be very, very good. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-05-27 11:30:00 (link to chat)Joey Gallo or Corey Seager?
(Eddie from LA)
Reluctantly, Seager. While Gallo's ceiling is certainly higher, and he's looking awesome this year, I want to see what happens against higher level pitching. None of Gallo's warts have been exposed quite yet, and I want to see how he does, particularly against arm side spin. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-05-13 11:00:00 (link to chat)Any chance Corey Seager stays at SS? What is his potential?
(Ryan from Atlanta)
I think he's a 3B at the end of the day. Bat is going to play; hit and power. Most likely a ML regular with a chance to be 1st division. He gets overrated on lists based on the projection at shortstop, which as I mentioned, I disagree with and see a future 3B. (Jason Parks)
2014-04-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Corey Seager stays at ss and how good can he be?
(Ryan from Albany)
Maybe in the short term, yeah. He's got a chance to be a pretty good hitter, I just think he'll wind up sliding over to third base. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-03-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Your opinion on Corey Seager? any chance he sticks at ss?
(Jon from Kansas)
He seems like a high quality prospect, but I haven't seen much from him. Jason Parks wrote Seager would wind up at third base long term in his top-10 rankings piece, for what it's worth. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-03-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Corey Seager - Potential Stud or what are your thoughts? any chance he stays at ss?
(Craig from Buffalo)
I'm a fan. Long way out, though. I'd bet on 3B, but non-zero chance of sticking at SS. (Paul Sporer)
2014-03-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of Corey Seager's potential? Do you think he makes a big jump this upcoming season and can he actually stay at short?
(Scott from Connecticut )
I only saw him for a game last year, so I don't have any strong thoughts as of now. I will after I see him with Urias in Rancho. I already thought he was massive when I saw him last season, so I'm very interested to see how much he's grown since. Don't see him as a shortstop. (Ronit Shah)
2014-03-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Who are some of the lower level SS that stand out most for their tools? Who do you have your eye on?
(flashtheleather from deep in the hole)
Only get to see High-A guys since I haven't been able to make it to Arizona for spring training. Carlos Correa and Corey Seager are shortstops right now, but both may have to move over to third. I can't wait to see both of them once the season gets going. (Ronit Shah)
2014-03-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)what are your thoughts on Corey Seager? Potential?
(Eric from NY)
Potential star at third base. I'll have a better feel and stronger opinion once I see him play more than a game in High-A this year. (Ronit Shah)
2014-02-18 14:00:00 (link to chat)Was Corey Seager just slumping on his promotion last year or did any concerns pop up?
(Myrick from Charleston, SC)
I only saw him for one game; not enough to have a confident take on him. But in that one game, he looked a little fatigued and was lunging at off-speed offerings. (Ronit Shah)
2013-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will Corey Seager be a top 25 prospect by the end of the year?
(bcransom from CA)
If he proves to the doubters that he is destined to stay at SS, yes. Will that happen? I'm not sure. I've seen him play shortstop and I saw I really, really good third baseman, not a true ML caliber SS. (Jason Parks on the Midseason Top 50 Prospects)
2013-04-04 11:00:00 (link to chat)Corey Seager got a mention in the Fernandez article this morning. Does he have the ceiling to be a top 25 prospect down the line, or is he more of a high-floor type.
(wes from Dallas)
I think he does. It's not an up-the-middle profile, but I really believe in the bat and I think he could develop into an above-average defensive 3B. (Jason Parks)
2013-04-04 11:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Richie Schaffer? Can you compare his bat to Corey Seager's?
(Brian from Boston)
I don;t like his bat nearly as much as I like Seager's. Seager is silky smooth. (Jason Parks)
2013-02-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Corey Seager a top 50 caliber prospect in your eyes?
(liam from dallas)
I can see the case for the that. He wasn't on our list, but that has more to do with the talent in the minors than with Seager. You could easily convince me that he belongs in the top 101. (Jason Parks)
2012-10-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)what player(s?) impressed you the most in Fall Instructs?
(knockoutking from East Texas)
Royals RHP Miguel Almonte was excellent. I really liked him. Dodgers SS Corey Seager was also impressive. He will end up at 3B, but he can really swing the bat. (Jason Parks)
