Cory Seager jumps into top 10 for home runs in a season by a Shortstop twenty-two and younger
Once again Corey Seager showed off his power, blasting two home runs last night. Corey had already broken the LAD record for most home runs by a LAD SS, most doubles by a LAD rookie, most home runs by a LAD rookie infielder non-catcher edition so we need to look for other horizons.
Since Corey Seager is only twenty-two years old, I thought it would be interesting to see how he stacks up against other twenty-two-year-old shortstops. As expected, he stacks up very well.
The full list is here, but below were are only going to show shortstops who hit at least 20 home runs. He is currently 10th on the list, but two more home runs will vault him into a tie with Alex Rodriquez for 6th. His current OPS of .889 would place him 3rd on this list.
Alex Rodriquez who is going to retire at the end of the week (08/12/16) owns this leaderboard appearing it on three times. Carlos Correa has a chance to get on here three times but this will be Corey’s only appearance since he’s already 22. Corey has a good chance to move into the top three putting his name above HOF Cal Ripken and just below Alex Rodriquez. That is some nice company to be sandwiched in between.
