CHICAGO -- Corey Seager, the Dodgers' first-round pick in the 2012 First-Year Player Draft, was promoted on Friday from Class A Great Lakes to Class A Advanced Rancho Cucamonga.

Seager, ranked as the No. 2 prospect in the organization by MLB.com, was hitting .309 with a .918 OPS, 12 homers and 57 RBIs in 74 games for the Loons.

Seager, 19, was drafted as a shortstop and has remained at the position, even though many scouts believe that his 6-foot-4, 220-pound frame will require a move to third base.
