Recommended Pickup
Corey Seager, SS, LAD – Any discussion of Seager after his call-up included the caveat of limited playing time, but Jimmy Rollins' hand injury has allowed Seager to play every day, and the results have been sparkling so far – following Monday's 2-for-3 effort, he's now hitting .432 with six doubles, a homer, two steals, seven RBI and nine runs in his first 11 big-league games. Rollins' return doesn't appear to be imminent, so why not roll the kid out while he's got a hot bat?
