Corey Seager Opens Up About Future With Dodgers

The Los Angeles Dodgers were eliminated from the playoffs Saturday night and now have to begin planning their off-season moves. One player who has an expiring contract is star shortstop Corey Seager. For the first time of his career, he is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent, so there certainly is fear from Dodger fans heading into the winter. 

In a recent interview with SportsNet LA, Seager noted that he is unsure what will happen this winter, but also stated that he would love to stay with the Dodgers. When looking at all of his contributions to the franchise over his career, it's fair to say that they certainly don't want to lose him.

Seager has put together a very strong tenure with the Dodgers. He's a two-time All-Star and Silver Slugger Award winner. He also won the NL Rookie of the Year award back in 2016. However, his best accomplishments came during the 2020 season. He not only won the World Series with the team, but also was the NLCS MVP and World Series MVP. Thus, his importance to the franchise's history is now extremely high. 

In 636 games as a Dodger, Seager has a .297 batting average, 104 home runs and 364 RBIs. We will have to now wait to see if these stats go up and he re-signs with the team.
