GLENDALE, Ariz. - They didn't face each other in a game, but at least the Dodgers carted shortstop prospect Corey Seager from their Minor League complex to the Mariners clubhouse before Saturday's game to say hello to Seattle's starting third baseman: his brother, Kyle.
"We talked about it during the offseason, how great it would be to play against each other," said Kyle.
Instead, Kyle escorted Corey into the Seattle clubhouse to meet his teammates.
Kyle, 25, is coming off his first full season as a starter, having hit 20 homers with 86 RBIs. Corey, still 18, was drafted in the first round last year by the Dodgers, signed for a $2.35 million bonus and hit .309 at Rookie level Ogden.
Corey, at 6-foot-4, is four inches taller than his big-league brother, but the Dodgers have kept him at shortstop, even though many scouts believe he will wind up at third base because of his size.
