The 2020 Major League Baseball season is a wrap and the Los Angeles Dodgers are World Series champions. The Dodgers won in six games, and without a singularly dominant performance, a solid series by third baseman Corey Seager netted him MVP honors.

Seager hit .400 for the series including a pair of key multi-hit games. He was 2-for-4 with a home run in Game 2 and 4-for-5 with a home run and three runs scored in Game 4. Although his two biggest games came in the Dodgers’ two losses, he did complete the series with seven total runs scored.

He was tied for third best odds to win MVP on the Dodgers at DraftKings Sportsbook behind Mookie Betts and Clayton Kershaw, and alongside Walker Buehler and Cody Bellinger.
