One team apparently tried to get Kyle Seager to pull a Brady this offseason. Jon Heyman of MLB Network reported this week that the Texas Rangers asked the ex-All-Star slugger Seager if he was interested in coming out of retirement to play for them. Seager declined though, saying that he was happily doing chores at home.
The Texas Rangers made a pitch to former Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager about signing up to play third base next to his brother Corey this season, according to Audacy insider Jon Heyman.
The owner-imposed lockout has halted nearly all transactions at the big league level this off-season, with minor league free agent signings and retirements about the only non-labor related “news” that baseball-starved fans can gobble up until the lockout is ended. One of the first, and most surprising, retirement...
SALISBURY — At 34, Kyle Seager is one of the world’s youngest retirees, but the former Seattle Mariners third baseman sounds like he’s ready to embrace it. There were some career numbers out there to pursue — 300 homers and 1,000 RBIs — monumental numbers that looked very attainable with two or three more MLB seasons, but he’s never been obsessed with stats. He figures it’s time to chase the kids, rather than the numbers.
Looking at the history of the Seattle Mariners franchise, there are several prominent figures and stars who are among the best in the franchise’s history. Two of these such players are Jay Buhner and Kyle Seager. Both are very similar players within the history of the Mariners. Neither were the biggest stars on their teams or the best player on their teams, but they were certainly fan favorites. The question is, which was the better all-time Mariner?
Last week veteran third baseman Kyle Seager announced his retirement. The Mariners took Seager in the third round of the 2009 draft and got plenty of bang-for-their-buck, as Seager served as a staple at third base for over a decade. Defying expectations was a hallmark for Seager. As he advanced...
This might be the definition of damning with faint praise, but Kyle Seager’s Mariners tenure will forever be linked with the past decade of baseball in Seattle. He arrived as a baby-faced, flaxen-haired youth from UNC, and departed a slightly more grizzled-faced, less-haired man after eleven years of solid production, punching the time card at third base while surrounded largely by plodding mediocrity punctuated with the occasional burst of competent-to-exciting baseball. In a decade that saw the Mariners swing through competition cycles, as players came and went more frequently than corner teriyaki joints, Seager was the steady heartbeat of baseball in Seattle, providing highlight reel plays in key, high-stakes moments—but also in lost seasons, in smaller moments that nonetheless loomed large thanks to the consistent quality Seager provided every day, both as a player and as a person. Here are 11 of our favorite moments, one for every year of his Mariners career.
