6. Corey Seager, third appearance
It was not long ago that Corey Seager was viewed as the franchise-revolving player on the Los Angeles Dodgers and the one that the team would be looking to build around for years to come. Seager not only ran away with the National League Rookie of the Year award but finished third in NL MVP voting in that same year.
Seager was an all-star in his rookie season and then followed suit his second year. He then started to taper off late in 2017 as he dealt with elbow pain, which carried over into 2018, leading to him missing the rest of the season because of Tommy John surgery.
The 2019 season was then about recovery and getting used to seeing live pitching again, which had an impact on Seager. He was slow out of the gate and had a bad year for his standards, but still finished with a .272 batting average, .817 OPS, 19 home runs, 87 RBIs and the league lead in doubles with 44.
After a bad showing in the 2019 NLDS, those numbers were deemed not good enough for Seager and the trade speculation began, with a large portion of the fanbase wanting the team to include Seager in a package for Mookie Betts. Thankfully, it never happened.
Seager is still a franchise player and is someone with legitimate MVP potential. It has been a bumpy road for Seager but he showed us last season that he is one of the best hitters in the league when he is seeing the ball well.
He is going to return to form this season and is going to remind all the fans that doubted him why the team did not trade him. Expect Seager to hit .300 with 25 home runs, 85 RBIs and a .900 OPS.
