‘Best hitter of the year’ Ohtani, Acuña, Betts? ‘The answer is Seager’

After missing a lot of games due to injury, Corey Seager (29, Texas Rangers) is looking like a hitting god.

Through 103 games of the season, Seager is batting .344 with 31 home runs, 92 RBI, 83 runs scored, 143 hits, a .406 OPS, and a 1.070 slugging percentage.

Most notably, Seager went 3-for-3 with a home run (his 31st of the season), three RBIs, two runs scored, and one walk against the Toronto Blue Jays on May 15, a game that was crucial to their postseason hopes.

Texas went on to beat Toronto 9-2 that day, closing the gap on the American League West-leading Houston Astros to half a game. They are now in the second wild card spot.

Previously, Seager missed time from mid-April to mid-May due to injury. He then missed about 10 days in late July as well.

However, despite the injury, Seager has been hitting at a peak level, making up for last year’s struggles. His OPS of 1.070 is tops in all of baseball.토토사이트

He is also threatening to unseat Luis Arajuez, 26, who has led the majors in that category all season with a .340 batting average.

As a result, Seager has a wRC+ of 180. He also ranks first in the majors in FWAR at 6.0. Ohtani’s FWAR is 6.6.

There are no ifs in baseball. But if Seager hadn’t been injured, he would have been in the MVP race with Shohei Ohtani, 29.

Seager underachieved in his first year with Texas last year, hitting just .245 with a .772 OPS in 151 games, but this year he’s fully adjusted to the league.

Seeger’s performance will be crucial to Texas’ postseason run. It will be interesting to see if Seager can give Texas the gift of fall baseball after a string of pitching departures.
