Corey Seager moving up the leaderboards

Just five days ago we were waxing eloquently about how Corey Seager was going to be breaking into many of the record books for shortstops. Evidently Corey was not satisfied with being at the precipice of the leaderboard, so he had another crazy weekend and has now put himself squarely in those leaderboards.

On June 1st, after his May home run barrage, Corey was not in the top thirty-one home runs seasons for a shortstop age twenty-two or younger. He is now in the top twenty and on his way to having a top five home run season for any twenty two year old SS or younger.

I’ve added a new column to the table. Since Corey has only played 1/3 of a season, I thought it might be beneficial to look at his home run per at bat numbers. It is early, and of course he’s coming off a barrage of home runs, but right now Mr. Seager has the best home run per at bat ratio on the list below.  The list is now thirty-two long because Corey joined it, and it will be the last time we see all thirty two names. I kept them here to show who Seager passed in the past five days.  I didn’t expect to update this list until July 1st, but he’s simply been to hot.
