2012 MLB Draft: Los Angeles Dodgers Select Corey Seager

Corey Seager, 3B, Northwest Cabarrus HS, Concord, NC: The younger brother of Seattle Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager, Corey is a 6-3, 200-pound left-handed hitter with power, a refined approach, and a good chance to be an above-average fielder at third base, although he is currently a shortstop. He’ll need first-round money to pass up the University of South Carolina, but should be signable in this spot. The Dodgers usually look for pitching this early in the draft, especially from the high-school ranks, but Seager’s bat was too good to pass up. He isn’t just a hitter; his overall tools are quite solid. His makeup (like his brother’s) is extremely well-regarded, and was part of the reason he moved up draft boards so quickly in recent weeks. His brother’s success this spring may also have had something to do with it, by highlighting the baseball instincts they both possess.
