On Monday, MLB announced that Corey Seager was the National League Player of the Week. During the week, Seager hit .500/.524/1.000/1.524 with two home runs and seven RBI.

He had two hits in all five games played, including five extra base-hits. It wasn’t just these last five games that Seager has been hot with the bat, his stellar play stretches back a few weeks. Over his last 12 games, he’s hitting .375 with an OPS of 1.171. During this stretch, he has five homers and 16 RBI. He has at least two hits in six straight games, and seven of his last eight games.

It’s been an up-and-down season for Seager, but it appears he’s getting hot at just the right time. On the year, he’s hitting .273/.336/.478/.814. Though he’s only played in 129 games, he’s set a career-high with 41 doubles, which is the fourth best in the NL.
