Mariners Hitter #5: Kyle Seager
Last but not least, we have the Mariners version of Iron-Man, Kyle Seager. The 33-year-old is batting .429 and slugging .857 through five Spring Training games. Kyle only has three hits but has walked four times which has inflated his numbers. Obviously, I want Kyle to have six hits like Ty France, but I think his plate discipline says a lot about his character as a veteran.
Among the three hits, one of them was a big home run that was a part of the back-to-back-to-back jacks from him, Mitch Haniger, and Ty France.
Kyle Seager acknowledges that his time in Seattle is nearing a close, but we are still rooting him on every time he steps on the field. As far as we can tell, Kyle isn’t slowing down. Let’s hope he can be another reliable batter in the lineup again, and maybe he can lead us to a playoff appearance. I am sure Kyle would like that very much.
Now, a couple of honorable mentions worth sharing.
