Corey Seager’s memorable week hasn’t boosted him into contention for a starting spot on the National League team at this summer’s All-Star Game, but there’s still time. Fan voting continues through the end of June at dodgers.com/vote.
Thanks to his latest hot streak, the 22-year-old is hitting .284/.346/.526 with 12 doubles and 14 home runs, and has extended his lead over NL shortstops in wins above replacement. He is at 2.8, which is 0.5 higher than the next-closest shortstop, San Francisco’s Brandon Crawford, and more than double that of vote leaders Addison Russell of Chicago and Trevor Story of Colorado.
Seager also ranks No. 1 among NL shortstops in weighted on-base average and weighted runs created. He is third defensively, behind Crawford and Philadelphia’s Freddy Galvis.
