This Dodger infield prospect is on an absolute tear. He is batting an impressive .342 with 8 home runs, 21 doubles and 37 RBI's in 49 games. His OPS is hovering at an all-star level of .979. Even more telling is that he has been consistently good against both right-handed and left-handed pitchers. Against righties he is slashing .344/.398/.545, and against southpaws he is .333/.385/.708. Wow!
If Corey Seager can continue to develop like this, then I figure he'll be spending just a little more time in the minors before getting a chance to show his stuff on the big stage. Maybe he moves up to Double-AA later in the season, then gets a cup of coffee in 2015 as a 21-year old.
His progress has to make the folks in the Dodger front office giddy. In fact, I know I'm happy as a clam. So happy in fact, I figured it was about time to pick up a Seager autographed card for my collection before they starting shooting up in value. Unfortunately, I might be a little too late. His 2012 Bowman Chrome rookie cards are regularly trading at about $30 to $40 a piece.
So, instead of splurging big on that card I decided to pick up a 2013 Bowman Inception autographed card instead. Check it out above and below.
As you can see, it came to me in the original card saver direct from Topps. I have yet to decide if I'll crack it out of that packaging.
