Seager hits a home run, time to update the Seager HR leaderboard

Amid the doom and gloom of what a “mild herniation” means,  Corey Seager launched his team-leading 17th home run today.

That moves Seager past Raul Mondesi and into a tie with Billy Grabarkewitz, the Witz kid of 1970.

LAD Rookie Home Run Leaderboard

Player HR Year Age PA OPS Pos
Mike Piazza (RoY-1st) 35 1993 24 602 0.932 C
Joc Pederson 26 2015 23 585 0.763 CF
Frank Howard (RoY-1st) 23 1960 23 487 0.784 OF
Eric Karros (RoY-1st) 20 1992 24 589 0.73 1B
Greg Brock (RoY-7th) 20 1983 26 543 0.738 1B
Yasiel Puig (RoY-2nd) 19 2013 22 432 0.925 OF
Corey Seager 17 2016 22 343 0.899 SS
Billy Grabarkewitz 17 1970 24 640 0.852 SS/3B
Raul Mondesi (RoY-1st) 16 1994 23 454 0.849 OF
James Loney (RoY-6th) 15 2007 23 375 0.919 1B
Ron Cey (RoY-6th) 15 1973 25 595 0.723 3B

With 80 games in the books, you could extrapolate Seager for 34 bombs.  He is certainly on pace to pass Joc Pederson and at least end up second on this list. Of course,  that is getting ahead of ourselves because anything could happen.

What we do know is that Mike Piazza would not hit his 18th home run until July 9th, one day after hitting his 17th home run on July 8th. Right now Seager is a head of the Piazza pace.

I may not have mentioned that Piazza hit two home runs in a game three times in Sept.
