Kyle Seager goes 1-for-4 Sunday

Kyle Seager went 1-for-4 with a strikeout during Sunday's win against the White Sox.

Fantasy Impact: It was Seager's lone hit of the weekend series, and he's now only 2-for-17 with five strikeouts over his last four games. After a solid July he's only mustered a .624 OPS in August.

Fantasy Impact: Seager's consistency is one of his best features, though his value to the Mariners is slightly more pronounced than to his fantasy owners. A drawback of his heavy workload, however, is that he appears to tire down the stretch, and over the past four seasons has hit for a line of .233/.299/.373 and a wRC+ of 91 in the month of September in 439 plate appearances. It is possible that this has been poor luck, as his BABIP has dipped under .235 twice during September, compared to his .289 overall average for his career. The truth is likely somewhere in between. If you see an opportunity to move the 3B for value and your league deadline has not passed yet, it could be a shrewd decision going into the season's home stretch.

 

Kyle Seager has a monster day

Kyle Seager went 3-for-4 with a walk, a single, a double, and a solo-HR against the Rockies on Monday. He also stole a base in the game.

Fantasy Impact: Seager was amazing on Monday, falling a triple short of the cycle, and getting a combo meal (HR & SB). It was only Seager's second SB of the season, something he's not known for, to go with his 16th homer. After the three-hit performance, Seager's average is at a healthy .270, as he looks to replicate last year's success.

Kyle Seager batted in the second hole and went 1-for-4 with a run scored in the Mariners 3-2 loss to the Twins.

Fantasy Impact: Seager has gone 6-for-30 in his last seven games failing to record a home run or RBI during that stretch. Batting .268 with 15 HR and 43 RBI on the year his numbers are lower than expected, but he provides solid value in daily leagues.

Kyle Seager is riding a nine-game hitting streak coming into the four game series against Detroit.

Fantasy Impact: Keep riding Kyle Seager while he's on this tear. He is hitting at a .428 clip over the past nine game. He has been a "second half guy" thus far in his career and that is starting to hold true again here in 2015.

Kyle Seager went 1-for-4 with a solo-HR against the Angels on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Seager quietly continues to be a solid producer for fantasy owners, batting a decent .262 with 12 homers and 38 RBI. He's not going to set the baseball world on fire anytime soon, but a .270/25 HR/90 RBI season is well within reach.

Kyle Seager's streak of 192 games played came to an end on Thursday when he was sent home with an apparent bout of food poisoning. “We sent Seager home with IV bags and medicine,” manager Lloyd McClendon said. (Source: @shannondrayer)

Fantasy Impact: Don't expect Kyle Seager to be back in the lineup Friday. Even if he is back in the lineup, I'd still steer clear for a few days.

 

Kyle Seager went 2-for-4 with a single and a solo-HR against the Giants on Monday night.

Fantasy Impact: Seager keeps plugging away, providing solid production with 11 homers and a .275 average. His 36 RBI has him just outside of the top-30 overall, and Seager's fantasy owners should be pleased with his output thus far. Keep him active in all formats.

Kyle Seager hits a grand slam HR

Kyle Seager went 2-for-4 with a RBI double and a grand slam home run against the Indians on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Seager launched one off of Indians SP Trevor Bauer in the third, hitting the second grand slam of his career, and giving the Mariners the lead for good. This was as good a follow up performance as possible after his perfect day at the plate in the previous game, as Seager should continue to provide fantasy owners plenty of value all season long.

Kyle Seager went 2-for-2 with a single, a double, and two walks against the Indians on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: There wasn't any counting stats to go along with the perfect effort, but fantasy owners should still be pleased. Seager's average is roughly in line with his career numbers, at .276, and his nine homers thus far are on pace as well. Keep him active in all fantasy formats.

Kyle Seager went 2-for-3 with a walk and two doubles against the Indians on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Seager has been tearing it up as of late, raising his average from .238 on May 13th to a solid .276, with five homers in the stretch. Keep him active in all formats and enjoy the ride.

Kyle Seager went 2-for-4 with a single and a solo-HR against the Blue Jays on Sunday. He also struckout twice in the game.

Fantasy Impact: Seager has now hit homers in back-to-back games, and it looks like he might finally be heating up. His average is up to a respectable .270, and he's come around to score five times in the last four games. Keep Seager active in all fantasy formats, and enjoy the hot streak.

Kyle Seager went 1-for-4 with a solo-HR against the Blue Jays on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Seager made his one hit count, driving a ball over 400 feet for his sixth HR. That makes four homers in May, so the slugger might finally be heating up to the level fantasy owners were hoping for. Keep Seager active in all formats, and hope that the trend continues.

Kyle Seager went 2-for-3 with two singles and a strikeout against the Orioles on Thursday. He was ejected from the game in the fifth inning for arguing balls and strikes.

Fantasy Impact: Seager managed to be productive for his fantasy owners despite only playing half the game. It hasn't been the breakout (or even repeat) year owners were hoping for, but Seager remains a must-play due to his potential (and draft cost).

Kyle Seager went 1-for-3 with a single against the Red Sox on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Seager has seen a big dip in production this season, with only four homers thus far, and a pedestrian .248 average. Any value Seager can give his fantasy owners is welcomed at this point as his draft cost has made him tough to part with, especially for those in deeper leagues.

Kyle Seager went 1-for-4 with a single and a run scored against the Astros on Sunday. He also struckout once in the game.

Fantasy Impact: It's been a slow start to the year for Seager, and a disappointment for fantasy owners that expected Seager to potentially improve for the fourth straight year after knocking in almost 100 RBI and launching 25 HRs last season. Seager is hitting just .244 thus far, with only two homers, the last of which came back on April 13th. Keep him active in all formats with the hope that he gets going soon.

Kyle Seager was able to help his team out Sunday by hitting an RBI single in the 6th inning to give the Mariners a 4-3 lead at that point in the game. Seager also struck out once in the contest.

Fantasy Impact: Seager has gotten off to a pedestrian start this 2015 season hitting just .174/.208/.304 through the first six games. But overall the Mariners have struggled to score runs early on and so expect things to change soon. Seager remains one of the top options at third base offensively and will have plenty of opportunities hitting fifth in the improved Mariners lineup.

Seattle Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager went 1-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Colorado Rockies. It was his first home run of spring training.

Fantasy Impact: Seager now has two singles and the home run in 12 plate appearances this spring. The relatively slow start shouldn't have any impact, as Seager projects comfortably as a top 10 fantasy third baseman.
