Texas Rangers: Five Reasons Corey Seager Will Have a Better 2023

Reason 4: He’s still chasing history
Perhaps you remember Sept. 18th, when Corey Seager broke the single-season major-league for home runs hit by a left-handed hitting shortstop. Ironically, fellow Ranger Brad Miller set the record in 2016 while with the Tampa Bay Rays. Seager has a chance when the 2023 season begins to become the all-time home run leader among left-handed hitting shortstops.
For now, Brandon Crawford holds the record with 139. With 137 career home runs, Seager only needs two homers to tie Crawford and three to pass him. If Seager starts the season on one of his classic hot streaks (he homered in five straight games and six out of seven during the first two weeks of July), he could break the record during the first week or two of the new season.
