Found March 16, 2013 on Feelin' Kinda Blue:
Much to my surprise, Corey Seager made an appearance during Thursday's exhibition game against Meiji University. The first thing I noticed was his size, which I touched on in my last post. He struck out looking in his first at-bat and I took video of his second at-bat. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any decent (free) video editing software, so this is completely uncut and raw. Seager takes a vicious swing around the 1:30 mark. He knew Jared Massey and I were there, so he was trying to impress us with his swing. That has to be it. Here's the video. He's an impressive physical specimen -- a different kind of impressive than Yasiel Puig (who absolutely dominated a baseball game tonight for five innings, which I'll write about on Saturday). The Dodgers may have very well picked a winner here. I'm looking forward to following his progression through the minor leagues.

Dodgers' Zack Greinke to resume playing cacth
