2. Corey Seager hits 30 home runs, 40 doubles and bats .300
If everything goes as planned and Corey Seager goes the entire season without sustaining any big injuries that hold him out for more than a few days, then chances are that he is going to hit over .300 with 40 doubles and a personal-best 30 home runs.
This obviously indicates that Seager is going to have a good season, by our estimation, but these numbers are important. They are specific thresholds for Seager to cross, and if he does, he is going to have a year that does not happen often.
Four players in 2019 hit 30 or more home runs, 40 or more doubles and hit .300 last season, which was the highest number of players in one season to accomplish the feat since 2008. Only two of those players were 26 or younger last season and only six such years have occurred in the last 10 years for players 26 or younger, like Seager.
So it is not necessarily record-breaking stuff but it definitely is not something that happens often and does not happen by accident. The only players since 2010 to accomplish the feat under the age of 26 are Mookie Betts (twice), Freddie Freeman, Nolan Arenado, Rafael Devers and Xander Bogaerts.
That is a talented collection of players and Seager has what it takes to join those ranks. He has hit over .300 in a season before and even in a down year for him last year he still hit .272. He has hit 40 doubles before and actually led the National League in doubles with 44 and has hit as many as 26 home runs in a year.
The 30 home runs will be the most challenging but with how frequently balls are flying out and with another year under his belt, the 30 home run-mark is not unobtainable for Seager in the slightest.
