The Mariners are close to signing Kyle Seager to a seven-year, $100 million extension.
Well this will certainly thrust the usually underrated Seager into the spotlight. He's got three-straight seasons with 20 or more home runs and set a career-high of 96 RBI last year. His plate discipline has remained very stead, he can swipe a few bases here and there and he's batted no lower than .360 with a .330 on-base percentage in each of the three seasons. Throw in roughly 30 doubles per year and you've got yourself one heck of a cornerstone at third base. Given the troubles we've witnessed at the position last year, Seager could easily start this season as a top-seven third baseman heading into drafts this coming season.
