(5/15/13) Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager seems to have taken well to his new spot in the order. He went 2 for 4 with his first home run in nine games Wednesday against the Yankees.
Seager is reaping the benefits of hitting in a run-producing part of the lineup, with five RBI in three games out of the third spot since being moved there. He is batting .286 with 18 extra-base hits in 39 games, and hitting third consistently is only going to improve his RBI total, which sits at 21.
Fantasy owners should only expect more big things from Seager with this move. He is worth getting active in all formats.

(5/12/13) Mariners manager Eric Wedge made a change to his lineup Sunday against the Athletics, moving Kyle Seager into the third spot in the batting order. Wedge made the move in order to alleviate some of the pressure felt by Kendrys Morales and Michael Morse, who moved down to fourth and fifth in the lineup, respectively.
"Kyle is a very mature young hitter," Wedge said, per MLB.com. "We’ve seen that. The reality is he’s probably more than [just a two-hole hitter]. And I trust him. There’s not too much we can give him that he can’t handle and he’s already proven that."
Seager entered play Sunday batting .267 (8 for 30) with one double, one home run and three RBI in eight May games. He has a .287/.355/.471/.826 slash line through 36 games.
"I look at him as either a two or three-hole hitter," Wedge said of Seager. "It just takes some time to figure out what everyone ultimately is going to be."

(5/9/13) As was the case in 2012, Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager has performed much better on the road this season. One year after hitting .293/.324/.511 with 15 of his 20 home runs in 330 plate appearances on the road, Seager has hit .299/.377/.522 with three of his four home runs in 77 road plate appearances in 2013.
Those numbers heavily contrast with his home lines of .223/.307/.325 in 321 plate appearances in 2012 and .266/.288/.422 in 66 home plate appearances this season. The Mariners, who have played their last five games on the road, head home for a three-game series against the Athletics that starts Friday, before playing nine straight games away from Safeco Field.

(5/5/13) It's time for Fantasy owners to respond a little more positively to Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager's hot streak. It's lasted more than a few days and he's still started in less than 80 percent of Fantasy leagues.
Seager's slash line in his last 22 games is .349/.398/.593/.991. While some of those numbers are on the high side, they aren't outrageous. I would be more concerned if he was batting over .400 and his slugging percentage was .650 or higher. Seager's early season plate-discipline numbers, per FanGraphs.com, indicate he's being a little more patient and not chasing pitches. He's also making a little more contact when he offers at pitches inside the strike zone.
I, like my colleague Al Melchoir, was touting Seager as a breakout candidate since the preseason and my stance hasn't changed. Seager had great offensive numbers in the minors and his potential finally seems to be shining through at the major-league level.
|Three more hits for Kyle Seager|

(5/3/13) Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager continued his hot hitting Friday night against the Blue Jays. Seager collected three hits in the 4-0 win, including belting his fourth home run of the year.
He ripped the two-run shot off starter Ricky Romero in the fourth inning, giving Seattle an early 2-0 lead.
Seager also singled twice and finished 3 for 4 with two RBI and a run scored. He has hit safely in 20 of his last 21 games and is batting .370 with seven doubles, four home runs and 14 RBI over that span.
|Kyle Seager had a decent callup in 2011 but added some bulk last offseason and ended up becoming the starting third baseman out of spring training for Seattle. He also became a reliable run producer as he finished with 86 RBI -- 44 of those coming with two outs -- which was tied for third in the majors. After batting just .243 in the first half, Seager got stronger after the All-Star break and ended up with a .259 average, 20 home runs and a .423 slugging percentage. The 25-year-old is versatile enough to play all over the infield but should man the hot corner for the Mariners again in 2013. He should benefit from the fences at Safeco Field being moved in during the offseason. Seager still has some decent upside in Fantasy, so target him in the later rounds of mixed leagues on Draft Day. He's reliable at a surprisingly deep position. (Updated 12/11/12)|
