Kyle Seager – Not
Seags has put together a pretty solid season in 2015, but the past 7 days have not been kind to the Gold Glove third baseman. Seager went 5 for 25, good for a .200 average. He added 2 doubles, 1 home run and 3 RBI’s. The 27-year-old struck out 6 times and worked 2 walks.
Seager is not quite having the year he had in 2014, but he is still a key component of the Mariners’ attack. He is hitting .262 with 17 home runs and 47 RBI. Those are not All-Star numbers, but the M’s failures this season have had little to do with Seager.
One area I would like to see Seager improve during the remainder of the season is his hitting with runners in scoring position. He hit .301 with RISP in 2014, but that number has dropped to a measly .170 this year.
