Shoulder injury ends season
SSTexas Rangers  A
May 9, 2019
Seise will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left (non-throwing) shoulder, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
This is a tough break for the young shortstop, who missed all of the 2018 campaign after undergoing surgery on his right shoulder last May. Prior to suffering the injury, Seise appeared in 20 games for Low-A Hickory, slashing .241/.272/.356 with seven extra-base hits (four doubles and three triples) and six stolen bases in 92 plate appearances. At this point, it's unclear if the 20-year-old Seise will be ready for the start of spring training next year.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
The Rangers surprisingly popped Seise at the back of the first round, but it looks like they knew what they were doing. Coming into the draft, he was seen as a glove-first shortstop. However, he flashed an impressive combination of power and speed in the AZL, often outshining the more highly touted Bubba Thompson, whom the Rangers selected three picks earlier in the draft. Had he qualified, Seise's .509 SLG and .904 OPS would have both ranked fifth in the league. His early success (partially fueled by a .429 BABIP) led to a promotion to the Northwest League. The level jump understandably proved to be a challenge for the 18-year-old, with his strikeout rate going from 23.3 percent to 28.8 percent and his 7.0 percent walk rate dropping to 3.8 percent. At 6-foot-2, 175 pounds and with good bat speed, Seise could grow into above-average game power to go with above-average speed on the bases, leaving the door slightly open for a 20-20 season early in his career -- a feat accomplished by only one shortstop last year (Elvis Andrus).
