Seager very quietly put up 20 homers, 86 rbi's, and 13 steals last year to pair with a decent triple slash of .259/.316/.423. He flew under the radar for all of last year, and not many people paid attention to him. He still isn't a very talked about player, but he could really surprise people this year. I don't know what his ADP is, but I'm guessing it isn't very high. Can Seager keep up the solid numbers this year?

From some of the Mariner fans I talk to, alot of belief in Seager is the real deal.  I don't think 30 homers as a ceiling is out ofthe question.  In my league he has 2B and 3B elgibility, which ups his value a bit on my eyes.  18 games at 2B last season. His power was even pre and post all star.  But keep in mind that he hit only 5 homers at safeco last year and only 26 of his RBI's came at home.  He did steal 10 bases at home.  I think his ceiling is high, but my recommendation is if you want to win your fantasy league, you don't employ Seattle Mariners on it.

Watching MLB network today they were talking about the M's and he is listed as their 3-hitter.  Definetly a guy who will be undervalued fantasy wise, especially in leagues where he is 3B only (20 games or more elig) maybe in leagues where he is a 2B with smart owners he will be a very well known commodity.

Long-term wise, will Seager be a permanent 3B or will Ackley be eventually moved to the OF?

I have heard he may be on the move to the Dodgers in a deal for Ethier and Capuano.  Nothing confirmed yet though.  I think he will be a guy that is better in real life than in fantasy.  He had 3 straight months of sub .700 OPS`last season, struggles vs. lefties and Safeco ate him up.  A change of scenary may do him some good being surrounded by better talent, all that said I think last year may be as good as it gets for him counting stat wise, although his average could stablize in his prime.

If he gets out of Seattle that would boost his value dramatically.

Long term  he's the 3B solution. Ackley is the 2B basemen.  Ackley's defense is really quite good and it could of just been local reporters hyping their own, but some gold glove talk with how he performed defensively.  Also, Mariners do not have any big prospects on the mend at 3B, and if they did they wouldn't pan out either.

Seager's no slouch with the glove either but he has a better arm than Ackley.

The fences moving in and the new lineup protection of Morse and Morales should do this kid some wonders.

Is the 20 Homers sustainable? He hit 20 homers while only having a 9.8 HR/FB ratio

I don't see why not.  Another year older, fences moved in, more than sustainable HR/FB ratio.

Got "stuck" with him in my league. It's a keeper/mini-dynasty and 11 3Bs were kept (Encarnacio was my 3B last year and he's no longer eligible). I basically sat on the positionthe whole draft as I was not enamorated with any of the leftovers. Considering what was available and how late I got him, I'm reasonably happy. I do think he's undervalued as he does a little bit of everything with no obvious holes. Other than the fact he plays in Seattle, seems like a decent player.

if he puts up the same numebrs as last year, I'm happy

If he does so with a higher batting avg and ups the HR to 25, I'm very happy

For anyone watching this guy, does he at least have some hard hit balls?  Wasn't expecting BA but no power or SB yet has me concerned.

I watch him every night and no, he's looked awful...

He had one nice game in Oakland during the opneing series, other than that - lazy pop fly after lazy pop fly. Just to make sure I wasn't lying to you I checked out fangraphs - and yup, like every other young M's player from their system so far this year - horrible. He's rocking a 8% LD%.

I do like him though - he's a good ball player in real life, I don't think he'll match last years fantasy output. Especially the RBIs and HRs. His Home/road splits are RIDICULOUS!

Thanks, good to know it just isn't a case of a guy having hard hit balls land in gloves or in foul territory. I remember he was streaky last year and was hoping that with a year under his belt and with Safeco moving in the fences he could at least duplicate last year's numbers.  Maybe he will, but I'll take the chance he doesn't hit like a monster over the next few days on the waiver wire.

Man this is getting brutal. Normally I wouldn't panic but this is a player with not much of a track record.

Yeah the problem I'm having is I'd have to drop him in order to get another 2B.  So i'm stuck with him for now.
