No. 2 hitter that can definitely help fix the LA Angels’ starting lineup next year: Corey Seager

Corey Seager rakes, and the LA Angels need to have him on the short list of offensive players to go after. Seager got his first taste of the big leagues in 2015, and then won Rookie of the Year in 2016. He was an All-Star that year, and was in 2017 as well.

He’s a career .297/.367/.504 (.870 OPS) hitter, who hits 26 home runs per 162 games to go along with 93 RBI and 100 runs. He’s hit 40 or more doubles in a season multiple times, and is another guy who would fit the team as the new potential shortstop.

He’s won multiple Silver Slugger awards, and like Semien, has been a top three MVP finalist in this game before.

Hitting .300 or better in three of his six seasons since his rookie year, he’s a great player already, and is just 27 years old.
