NL Rookie of the Year: Corey Seager

155 G, .311, 26 HR, 72 RBI, .887 OPS

Corey Seager has been everything the Dodgers could have hoped for, and then some. The 22-year-old has been dynamite since day one of the campaign.

His numbers across the board are outstanding, particularly considering the position he plays. He leads all rookies who have played at least 75 games in batting average, ranks second in homer runs, and is tied for major league baseball’s rookie lead in RBIs.

With seven hits in his final two games, Seager will have 200 hits. For a first year player, that feat is astounding.

The voting here will be close to unanimous, if not that.
