As good as Corey Seager's first week in Double-A was, his second week was even better. On Monday the Dodgers top prospect was named Texas League Player of the Week, for the extended week of April 9-19 (since opening day was on a Thursday).

Seager is hitting .500/.488/.762 so far, 21-for-42 with three doubles, two home runs, a triple, and 11 RBI in 10 games.

In Week 2 he was even better going 14-fo-26 (.538) with five extra-base hits in six games. Seager has an eight-game hitting streak, dating back to last week. His Week 2:

Monday: 4-for-4, run vs. Corpus Christi

Tuesday: 3-for-4 vs. Corpus Christi, including his first home run for Tulsa

Thursday: 2-for-4 with a home run and a triple at San Antonio. Seager played third base in this game for just the second time in his professional career, and had Mark Saxon of ESPN all but planning the itinerary for Seager's arrival at Dodger Stadium in June to take over for Juan Uribe.

That was Seager's only game at third base this week

Friday: 1-for-4, 3 RBI at San Antonio

Saturday: 2-for-5, 2 doubles at San Antonio

Sunday: 2-for-5, run at Corpus Christi

Seager has eight multi-hit games in 10 games this season, and 26 multi-hit games in 48 games at Double-A, dating back to last season.

Seager won California League Player of the Week honors once last year (May 19-25) but ended up winning Cal League MVP despite playing only 80 games with Class-A Rancho Cucamonga.
