The Texas Rangers were the boldest spenders of the MLB offseason, specifically spending $500 million on infielders Corey Seager and
Seager went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double, a solo home run and a second run scored in Tuesday's 10-5 win over the Angels. Seager launched his team-leading eighth homer in the first inning off Reid Detmers, giving Texas an early lead. He later initiated a comeback with a leadoff double in the eighth, setting the stage for a seven-run inning. Seager is batting .242 (32-for-132) for a team that ranks 27th in MLB with a .219 average.
Corey Seager snapped out of his slump by belting two home runs on Tuesday night, powering the host Texas Rangers
Corey Seager was hitting home runs in Globe Life Field before he called the park home. The shortstop now has his first multi-homer game with the Texas Rangers. Seager snapped an 0-for-16 slump with solo homers in each of his first two at-bats, Martin Perez pitched 6 1/3 solid innings and the Rangers opened a nine-game homestand with a 6-4 win over the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday night.
Seager went 2-for-3 with a pair of solo home runs and a walk in Tuesday's 6-4 win over the Royals. The pair of long balls -- Seager's fifth and sixth of the season -- helped break an 0-for-15 slump at the plate over his last four games. He'll look to keep the momentum going Wednesday, when he'll start at shortstop and bat third for the Rangers.
Seager went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to the Royals on Wednesday. After swatting two long balls Tuesday, Seager went hitless over his first three plate appearances Wednesday. However, he launched a 420-foot shot to center field in the ninth inning to finish the game on a high note. Seager's power has mostly come in bunches this season -- he swatted a long ball in three straight games over the final days of April and now has three homers over his past two contests. Six of seven home runs on the season have been of the solo variety.
Life is good with Isiah Kiner-Falefa as the New York Yankees starting shortstop. He’s brought sure-handed defense and an element on offense (aggression, contact-heavy) that this lineup has lacked for a couple years. Most fans are beyond pleased with his production. However, not too long ago, fans were lobbying...
Seager went 2-for-4 with a home run and two runs scored in a 3-2 loss Thursday against Houston. Seager made it a one-run ballgame with his one-out, solo homer to straightaway center field in the ninth off Rafael Montero. It was his second homer of the season and first since April 14. Coming into Thursday's game, the shortstop was 4-for-28 with no extra-base hits in his previous seven games. Despite that slump, he still has a respectable .257 batting average and, with a .499 SLG in his career, his power should show up at some point.
The former Dodgers shortstop was right in the thick of another bizarre highlight.
