Corey Seager lands ESPN The Magazine Cover

The guy is everywhere right now. Billed as ‘The New Classic’, we’re excited to see what this story alludes to about the Seager Boy. It’s not available anywhere on the interwebs yet, so we can’t link to what the story tells. But it will probably talk about him being something of a throwback.

Along with that, a recent story was up at The Ringer talking about Seager being on pace to have a better career than Alex Rodriguez. Piggybacking on that nicely is that Seager’s ailing oblique is healing – he played in a minor league game today and collected five at-bats including his first hit of the spring. Not that it tallies in any official box score. But, progress!

Should be a banner follow-up year. Seager’s going to play Opening Day and do what he does, get a couple knocks against the Padres.
