Dodgers minor league shortstop Corey Seager was named the California League offensive player of the week on Tuesday, for the week of May 19-25.

Seager had six multi-hit games in seven days for Class-A Rancho Cuamonga, hitting .552/.567/.931 (16-for-29) with five doubles, two home runs, eight runs batted in and four runs scored in games against Lancaster, Inland Empire and Lake Elsinore. Seager had a 12-game hitting streak through Sunday that was snapped on Monday.

The 20-year-old shortstop on the season is hitting .361/.408/.594 through Monday, leading the Cal League in batting average, OPS, doubles (20), extra-base hits (28) and wOBA (.438). Seager is second in slugging percentage and total bases (107), fourth in hits (65), and 10th in on-base percentage, all as one of the youngest players in the league.

This is the second straight offensive player of the week for the Quakes, joining first baseman Chris Jacobs for the week of May 12-18.
