Batting sixth, 3B Kyle Seager
the sixth spot in the order feels low for Kyle Seager but this lineup with Ozuna is good. I think Dylan Moore has a better season than Seager next year but at age 33 Kyle will still be productive. Seager had a great first few weeks of the season last year but then cooled down closer to, and in, September.
Seager played every game last season and in 248 plate appearances, he hit an OPS of .788 with 9 home runs. He also weirdly enough led the league in sacrifice flies but hey, a runs a run.
Seager has quietly been a great player for the Mariners over his career and will go down as the greatest third baseman in Seattle Mariners history. I would not be surprised if no one wears the number 15 again, especially if Kyle retires a Mariner.
However, there is now a rumor that the Mets and Mariners have discussed a trade for Seager, and Kyle does not really fit into the Mariners’ plan for the future as he is most likely gone after this season. For now, Kyle is a Mariner and if Seattle wants to compete in 2021 he will be their third baseman.
