Corey Seager (29, Texas Rangers), who missed many games due to injury and expressed his disappointment, is showing himself like a batting god.
Seager recorded a batting average of 0.344, 31 home runs, 92 RBIs, 83 runs, 143 hits, and an on-base percentage of 0.406 and an OPS of 1.070 in 103 games of the season until the 15th (Korean time).
In particular, in the game against the Toronto Blue Jays on the 15th, which is very important for advancing to the postseason, Seager was in full swing with 3 hits, 3 RBIs, 2 runs, and 1 walk, including his 31st home run of the season.
Accordingly, Texas defeated Toronto 9-2 that day, reducing the gap with the Houston Astros, the leader in the American League West, to 0.5 games. Currently ranked 2nd in Wild Card.
Previously, Seager was sidelined from mid-April to mid-May due to injury. Afterwards, his physical condition was not normal, with him being sidelined for about 10 days at the end of July.
However, despite his injury, Seager is showing peak hitting ability that completely makes up for last year’s slump. OPS 1.070 ranks first overall.메이저사이트
In addition, Seager recorded a batting average of 0.340 until this day, threatening the position of Luis Arraez (26), who has maintained the top spot in the major league in this category throughout the season.
Accordingly, Seager recorded a wRC+ of 180 until this day. This ranks first in the entire major league. It also ranked 6th in FWAR with 6.0. Ohtani’s FWAR as a hitter is 6.6.
There are no ifs in baseball. However, if Seager had not been injured, he is performing so well that he could have competed with Shohei Ohtani (29) for MVP honors.
Seager fell short of expectations with a batting average of 0.245 and an OPS of 0.772 in 151 games in his first year after moving to Texas last year, but he appears to have completed his adaptation to the league this year.
Seager’s performance will be of great help to Texas’ advancement into the postseason. Attention is being paid to whether Seager will gift fall baseball to Texas, which has suffered a series of pitchers leaving.
