Dodgers prospect Corey Seager is one step from the majors


Dodgers minor leaguer Corey Seager, a consensus top-10 prospect at age 21, has been promoted from Double-A to Triple-A after hitting .375 with five homers and a 1.082 OPS in 20 games to begin the season.

Last season, split between high Single-A and Double-A, he hit .349 with 20 homers, 50 doubles, and a 1.004 OPS. And the Dodgers have been playing the elite shortstop prospect occasionally at third base in the minors, to give them more options for his eventual call-up to the big leagues.

Seager, who was the 18th overall pick in the 2012 draft out of a North Carolina high school, is now one step from the majors just four days after celebrating his 21st birthday.
