Seager Reverts Back to April Form
The past seven games have not been kind to the Mariners’ gold glove third baseman. Kyle Seager went 5 for 25 this week with 2 doubles, 1 home run and 3 RBI. Seager posted a .310 on base percentage and slugged .400, but his .200 batting average was underwhelming at best. His 4:3 strikeout to walk ratio was impressive, but he needs to raise his batting average to be more effective.
2016 has been a rollercoaster season for Seager. After hitting just .159 in April, Seags turned it around in May, posting a .361 batting average. So far in June, he is batting .304. On the year, Seager has slashed .280/.355/.504 with 11 home runs and 42 RBI across 62 games. To put it simply, these are All-Star caliber numbers.
