Corey Seager is running down Hanley Ramirez

Corey is chasing Hanley Ramirez in two different years and two different categories.

  • In 2013 Hanley hit 20 home runs as a Shortstop, and that is the record that Seager is chasing for most home runs by a LAD shortstop. Corey has 18 home runs and that record should fall in August.
  • In 2014 Hanley hit 35 doubles as a Shortstop and that is the record he’s chasing for most doubles by a LAD Shortstop. Corey has 30 doubles and that record should fall in August.
  • In 2014 Hanley drove in 71 runs, and that is the record that Corey is chasing. Seager has 47 RBI. That record may be nip and tuck as the season winds down.

Two LAD shortstop records that Corey won’t be sniffing this year are most hits and most runs scored. Maury Wills holds both records and it would take an MVP season from Seager eventually sniff those, just as Wills won the MPV when he set them in 1962 with 208 hits, and 130 runs scored. Won’t even mention Stolen Bases because that isn’t his game.
