2019 Fantasy Outlook
We'll start with the good: for the seventh consecutive season, Seager reached 154 games played, 630 plate appearances and 20 homers. Now the bad: he graded out as below league average (84 wRC+) for the first time during that seven-year stretch, as his strikeout rate jumped five percentage points to 21.9%, his walk rate fell to a career-low 6.0% and his line against righties fell to .208/.257/.401. That was down from .249/.328/.448 in 2017 and .307/.394/.538 in 2016 -- a sharp, sudden decline against opposite-handed pitching. Statcast says he deserved better (.249 xBA, .420 xSLG), and just by staying on the field and accumulating, he ensured that fantasy owners didn't take too big of a hit on a top-150 draft-day price. That volume should be there again in 2019, theoretically, as he's signed with the Mariners through at least 2021, but as the saying goes, "players are durable until they're not." Read Past Outlooks
