Dodgers not ready to push aside Rollins for prospect Corey Seager


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2015) Even though Dodgers starting shortstop Jimmy Rollins is struggling offensively, manager Don Mattingly continues to back Rollins because of his defense and veteran leadership.

With teams calling up top prospects left and right, there is always the temptation for the Dodgers to dip into their farm system for shortstop prospect Corey Seager. However, as long as Rollins is healthy and the Dodgers are winning, it appears Seager will stay in the minors.

"Look at all the guys they build up," Mattingly said, per the Los Angeles Times, "and 95 percent of them a month or a month and a half later are below-average guys. They get this great big build-up, and then we don't talk about them any more."

However, Mattingly did say that if Rollins did get hurt, then bringing Seager to the majors would be an option.

"To me, he's next in line," Mattingly said. "I don't think they'd go out and try to find a shortstop."


Dodgers prospect Corey Seager goes 6 for 6 in Triple-A Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/28/2015) After getting off to a rather slow start, Dodgers prospect Corey Seager has been absolutely on fire over the last couple of weeks at Triple-A. Seager, who was promoted to Oklahoma on May 1, was hitting .339 (20 for 59) with two doubles, two home runs and five RBI over his last 14 games, entering play on Thursday. He had just seven hits in 37 at-bats in his first 10 games at Triple-A.

And he continued his hot streak on Thursday against the Salt Lake City Bees. The 21-year-old prospect went 6 for 6 with a home run, two doubles, and six RBI as the Triple-A Dodgers were victorious. In the four game series against the Bees, Seager was 13 for 19 with three homers and 10 RBI. 

Seager is the fifth-best prospect in the game according to Baseball America, and was the team's first-round draft pick (18th overall) in 2012.


Dodgers prospect Corey Seager launches firsts two PCL homers


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/26/2015) Dodgers prospect Corey Seage r had been mired in a slump since being promoted to Triple-A Oklahoma on May 1. The 2012 first-round pick came into Monday night's game in 3-for-25 skid with no extra base hits during that stretch. But Seager did his best to put that drought far behind him on Monday against Salt Lake.

Seager launched his first two Pacific Coast League home run on Monday, as Oklahoma won 6-1. Now, the 21-year-old is hitting .250/.290/.364 with 14 strikeouts in 88 at-bats with Triple-A. But Seager knows what he has to do and is trying to stay positive the best he can.

"There's going to be low points in every year," he said, per MiLB.com. "You just try to minimize them as much as possible. That was the low point for me, and I made the adjustment. Hopefully we can move on and not have too many more of them.

"I'm getting comfortable now. "It's always a whirlwind in the beginning trying to figure out everything about where you're going to be, get your clothes, all that other stuff. It's finally settling down. You can finally relax and go out and play again."


Dodgers' Corey Seager yet to click at Triple-A


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2015) Dodgers third-base prospect Corey Seager has hit just .233/.324/.367 with four RBI in 30 at-bats over his first eight games with Triple-A Oklahoma City.

One of the top-rated prospects in all of baseball, Seager dominated Double-A pitchers in his first 20 games of the year, hitting .375/.407/.675 with five home runs and 15 RBI in 80 at-bats with Tulsa. He has yet to come anywhere near that production in a small sample size after his promotion.

Seager is unlikely to play a large role on the major-league level this season if the Dodgers infield can stay relatively healthy.


Dodgers promote prospect Corey Seager to Triple-A


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2015) Dodgers blue-chip prospect Corey Seager was promoted from Double-A Tulsa to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday, according to the Orange County Register.

Seager, the No. 5-ranked prospect by Baseball America leading into the 2015 season, opened his 2015 campaign red-hot with a .375/.407/.675 slash line, seven doubles, one triple, five homers and 15 RBI. The 21-year-old has an 1.082 OPS in 20 games with Tulsa.


Dodgers prospect Corey Seager getting reps at 3B in minors


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2015) Dodgers prospect Corey Seager will play third base "roughly once a week" for the foreseeable future at Double-A Tulsa, president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman told reporters, per the Orange County Register.

"The idea is at some point, whether it's this year or next year, to the extent that we have an injury and he's our best option if he's only played shortstop, that obviously limits him to an injury happening at that one position," Friedman said. "Giving him reps at another position only helps him and helps us."

Seager, 20, is off to a fast start in the minors this season, slashing.423/.436/.654 with four doubles, one triple, two homers and 11 RBI in 14 games.


Dodgers' Corey Seager leads all of MiLB in hits with 14 in six games


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Dodgers prospect Corey Seager is off to a fast start at Triple-A Oklahoma City after totaling 10 bases over the last two minor-league games. He leads all of minor league baseball in hits with 14, and is hitting .583/.560/.750 with a double, a home run and six RBI over his first 24 at-bats.

Dodgers' Mattingly not expecting Seager callup before September


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2015) Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said barring any injuries on the major-league roster, he doesn't expect to see shortstop Corey Seager -- who is considered the team's top prospect by Baseball America -- in the majors before September, per the Los Angeles Times.

Seager, who was reassigned to minor-league camp Wednesday, hit .333 (4 for 12) in 12 spring games. He also had two doubles, four RBI, five runs, six walks and five strikeouts.


Dodgers option Scott Schebler, re-assign Corey Seager


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/18/2015) The Dodgers optioned outfielder Scott Schebler after Wednesday's 7-5 loss to the Cubs, the team announced.

Schebler went 0 for 2 in Wednesday's game, leaving him 8 for 20 with two home runs and six RBI in his second major-league spring stint. He's excelled with the bat during the last two seasons, including hitting .280/.365/.556 with 28 home runs, 73 RBI and 10 stolen bases in 489 at-bats with Double-A Chattanooga last season.

The team also re-assigned five players to minor-league camp Wednesday, including top infield prospect Corey Seager. Catchers Chris O'Brien and Shawn Zarraga as well as infielders Buck Britton and Darnell Sweeney were also sent to minor-league camp Wednesday.


Dodgers' Don Mattingly confident in SS Corey Seager


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2015) If needed, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly would be OK with playing young shortstop Corey Seager , according to the Orange County Register.

“Do I think he’s ready [to play at the major league level]?” Mattingly said. “I wouldn’t be afraid of [playing] him, I’ll tell you that.”

Center fielder Joc Pederson and pitcher Julio Urias have generated the most buzz among the up-and-coming prospects. However, Seager has performed well in his own right. He's hit 3-for-8 in Cactus League play and has drawn four walks. 

“With Corey, there’s really nothing not to like. He looks comfortable in the [batter’s] box," Mattingly said. "He looks comfortable on the field. He looks comfortable with our guys in the clubhouse. He seems to be handling everything about big league camp.”


Dodgers' Mattingly: Corey Seager profiles as big SS like Ripken


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2015) Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Monday that infield prospect Corey Seager has a swing like John Olerud and profiles as a big shortstop like Cal Ripken, MLB.com reports.

"The whole package has been good," Mattingly said. "He has a chance to be special."

Seager was rated as the No. 5 overall prospect by Baseball America this offseason. A first-round pick in 2012, Seager hit .349/.402/.602 with 20 home runs, 97 RBI and six stolen bases in 475 at-bats with high Class A Rancho Cucamonga and Double-A Chattanooga in 2014. The team added Jimmy Rollins to play shortstop, making sure Seager wouldn't be pushed before he was ready to play every day in the majors.

"Talking to Andrew [Friedman, president], we want to give them the best chance to develop so it's not a back-and-forth thing [to the Minor Leagues]," Mattingly said. "They all like to get here quick, but you run the risk of cutting corners and that can set a guy back."


Report: Dodgers may trade top prospect for nonrental


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) The Dodgers "haven't flat out said no" to trading one of their top three prospects for a player, as long as that player isn't due to be a free agent after the season, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Previous reports have said that outfielder Joc Pederson, third baseman Corey Seager and pitcher Julio Urias were off the table in trade talks, but that only applies to a rental like Jon Lester. The Phillies and Rays may be able to get the Dodgers to part with at least one of the team's top prospects in a deal for Cole Hamels or David Price, respectively, though neither trade has been reported to be in the works.


Corey Seager moving up to Double-A


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2014) Dodgers shortstop prospect Corey Seager has been promoted to Double-A Chattanooga, according to the Los Angeles Times

Seager, who is considered a top 100 prospect by MLB.com (No. 34) and Baseball America (No. 37), hit .352 with a .411 on-base percentage, .633 slugging percentage and 1.044 OPS in 80 games for Class A Rancho Cucamonga. He had two triples, 18 home runs, 34 doubles, 61 runs, 70 RBI, five stolen bases, 30 walks and 76 strikeouts.


Corey Seager on fire


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(5/12/2014) Dodgers top prospect Corey Seager is batting .429 (15 for 35) with five doubles at Class A Advanced Rancho Cucamonga since returning from a hamstring injury May 3.

"It's never fun sitting on the bench," the infielder told MLB.com. "It's nice to be back and nice to be in the lineup. I feel comfortable after [being on] the disabled list. ... It's just getting good pitches and not missing them. I'm not missing them right now. Hopefully, I can keep going with that."

Seager was the No. 18 overall pick in the 2012 draft.


Corey Seager hits minor-league DL with hamstring injury


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/28/2014) Dodgers infield prospect Corey Seager has been placed on the seven-day minor-league disabled list, retroactive to April 24, due to a hamstring injury.

Seager has performed well in the offense-boosting California League this season, hitting .294/.337/.482 with two home runs, 13 RBI and four stolen bases in 85 at-bats with high Class A Rancho Cucamonga. He still has plenty of work to do at that level, having struck out 24 times while walking just five times this season.


Corey Seager promoted to high Class A


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2013) Dodgers shortstop prospect Corey Seager was promoted from low Class A Great Lakes to high Class A Rancho Cucamonga Saturday. Seager went 0 for 2 with one strikeout in his debut for Rancho Cucamonga.

The 2012 first-round pick and younger brother of Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager hit .309 with a .529 slugging percentage and .918 OPS in 74 games for Great Lakes. He also had three triples, 12 home runs, 18 doubles, 45 runs, 57 RBI and nine stolen bases.


Dodgers enthusiastic about Corey Seager


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2013) Dodgers shortstop prospect Corey Seager is off to a slow start for Class A Great Lakes, batting .167 (6 for 36) through 10 games, but that doesn't damper the team's enthusiasm about the 2012 first-round pick.

"His passion for the game is truly unbelievable, and his knowledge and understanding of what he's seeing, what the opponents are trying to do to him, the pitching, is also unbelievable," Dodgers vice president of player development De Jon Watson told MLB.com. "It's very refreshing to see."

Seager, who is considered the Dodgers' fourth-best prospect by MLB.com, hit .309 with a .520 slugging percentage in 46 games in rookie ball last season. Seager continues to work at shortstop, though some scouts believe he will eventually develop into a third baseman like his older brother Kyle Seager, who plays for the Mariners.

"We think it's a very big piece for us," Watson said. "He had some help, obviously from his brother playing at the major-league level. I'm sure they communicate often. We also love the kid's make-up and his work ethic. He has an unbelievable passion for the game."


Seager to remain at SS for now


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/11/2013) MLB.com reports although many believe Dodgers prospect Corey Seager will eventually move to third base because of his size (6-4, 205 pounds), there are no plans to move him from shortstop this season. Even if Seager eventually changed positions, Dodgers minor league director De Jon Watson said Seager has the athleticism to manage a position shift. Watson added Seager had one of the most advanced plate approaches of anyone coming of of high school in last year's MLB draft.
