Will Corey Seager be the next elite shortstop?

Los Angles Dodgers infielder Corey Seager could be the next elite MLB shortstop. The way Seager plays reminds me a lot of a young Jimmy Rollins. The Dodgers drafted Seager in the 1st round 18th overall in the 2012 amateur draft. Seager is an all around shortstop and is still only 21 years of age.

Seager has power as he hit 21 homeruns one season in the minors and had two seasons with 18 dingers. Seager has speed to steal a handful of bases and can draw walks at the plate. 14 walks in 27 games at the major league level for Seager in 2015. The defense has room for improvement, but is still good for such a young player. Seager even got to experience the postseason in 2015 which is huge for a developing player.

In 2015 with the Dodgers Seager hit .337 with 4 homeruns and 17 RBI in 27 games. Not a huge sample size to judge on, but in his short time in the majors Seager impressed the Dodgers and did everything right. Seager only had 98 at bats in the majors in 2015, but that number should double or triple in 2016. The sky is the limit for Seager and his brother Kyle with the Seattle Mariners can be a testament to that. The Dodgers should not trade Seager for anything because they have the next superstar shortstop on their team.
