Seager went 2-for-5 with a three-run homer in a 12-4 victory over the Astros on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

That gives Seager 30 dingers this season, the most of his career. He is also hitting a career-best .281 with a .863 OPS. His previous career-high OPS was .788 back in 2014. Seager is also one RBI away from 100 and two doubles shy of tying his career high of 37.

Seager had an RBI double and two walks in a win at the Twins on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Seager is having a career season. His .283 average is easily the highest of his career, as is his .365 OBP, thanks to 66 walks, which are two from his career high set in 2013. He tied his career high with his 96th RBI and has nine games to get to 100. He also needs one more homer to reach 30 for the first time. Two more doubles and he'll match his career high in that, as well.

Seager went 3-for-4 with a homer, two RBI and two runs against the Rangers on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

He's now hit safely in nine consecutive games and homered twice in the last three, continuing the 28-year-old third baseman's season of growth. The home run was Seager's 27th, a new career high, and his current .296 batting average is a nearly 30-point improvement over his previous career best in that category. He can credit progress in his plate discipline, as Seager already has six more walks this year than all of last season.

Seager homered and drove in two in a 2-for-4 game with a walk in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

The foot injury that forced Seager out of three games in late August doesn't appear to be lingering whatsoever. He's now a robust 13-for-36 (.361) with five extra-bases including a pair of homers over 10 games since returning August 27. Seager's .896 ranks sixth among qualified third basemen.

Seager (foot) is hopeful to return to the lineup Friday, but he was seen wearing a walking boot after Thursday's contest, MLB.com's Greg Johns reports.

EDGE Analysis

The star third baseman is dealing with a bruised foot that has kept him out of the lineup for the past two days, but there is some optimism that he'll be able to return to the lineup Friday. However, the fact that he was in a boot Thursday suggests that the optimism should be taken with a grain of salt for the time being. Fortunately, X-rays on his bruised foot came back negative, so a return in the near future is likely, but his status for Friday is up in the air.

EDGE Analysis

Seager went for X-rays Wednesday on his bruised right foot that came back negative, but he'll be held out for a second straight game nonetheless as he continues to battle some soreness. Shawn O'Malley will get another start at third base in his place and hit eighth Thursday.

Seager is out of Wednesday's lineup against the Yankees, but X-rays on his right foot came back negative, Matt Pentz of the Seattle Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Seager fouled a ball of his foot in Tuesday's contest, but it sounds as though he avoided any serious damage. Shawn O'Malley will fill in at the hot corner Wednesday, but Seager could be ready to rejoin the lineup in time for Thursday's tilt against the White Sox.

Seager won't be in Wednesday's lineup after he fouled a ball off his foot in Tuesday's game, the Seattle Times' Ryan Divish reports.

EDGE Analysis

It sounds like just a sore foot for Seager, and he will likely make way for Shawn O'Malley at third base Wednesday, as the Mariners are carrying just one backup infielder on the active roster. Consider Seager day-to-day in advance of Thursday's game against the White Sox.
