Latest Update Kyle Seager hit his 19th home run of the year in the sixth inning of the Mariners win over the Phillies Tuesday. Tue Aug, 19, 10:28 PM
Has a pretty good power/speed combination and plenty of position versatility. Also displays plate patience, so he draws a lot of walks.
Flaws: : The jury is still out on whether he's able to defend consistently at the big-league level (at any position). Must also pick his spots better on the base-paths.
Seager is now hitting .273 with four home runs and 15 RBI since returning from the All-Star break as he continues to be one of the better options at the hot corner moving forward. Although his home ballpark does not do him any favors, Seager is only three home runs and eight RBI away from setting new career-highs in both categories, which is very obtainable down the stretch.

The way this guy gets underrated each year is always a major bonus for those who know and target him. He's currently slashing .277/.345/.473 with 18 home runs and 77 RBI and is on-pace to set career-highs across the board. There's nothing glamorous about him, so perhaps he stays low-profile, but three-straight 20-plus homer seasons is going to have him stand out. His level of consistency, his strong contact rates and his tasty line drive rates are the things which the smart fantasy owner covets.Analyst: Howard Bender
Seager is now slashing .277/.345/.476 with 18 home runs and 74 RBI through 441 at-bats as he remains a solid contributor to both the Mariners and his fantasy owners in 2014. Unless the wheels fall completely off down the stretch, Seager will finish the season as one of the top contributors at his position, despite starting off the season with a .225 batting average in the month of April.

Seager has been a little cold lately, going just 1-for-13 (.077) over his last four games so a return to his more power-friendly ways was certainly a welcomed sight. But in spite of some of the slumps you have to endure, Seager is primed to post his third-straight 20-homer season with a potential career-high in both RBI and batting average. He remains one of the more pleasantly underrated third basemen out there, so if your league sleeps on him, don't talk him up.Analyst: Howard Bender
