Corey Seager: The projected NL Rookie of the Year has entrenched himself into MVP talks behind an All-Star caliber first half.

Seager currently ranks third in FanGraphs’ version of WAR among NL positional players with 3.9, behind Kris Bryant of the Chicago Cubs and San Francisco’s Brandon Crawford.

Focusing on the Dodgers, Seager leads the teams in nearly every offensive category, including batting average (.297), home runs (17), on-base percentage (.357) and slugging (.521).

What’s most impressive about Seager, perhaps, is how confident and mature he appears at the plate and on the field, considering he’s just 22 years old. Needless to say, if Seager keeps it going in the second half at this pace, the Dodgers will be more than thrilled.
