Dodgers prospect Corey Seager was named the California League’s Most Valuable Player on Friday.

The 20-year-old shortstop slashed .352/.411/.633 in 80 games for Single-A Rancho Cucamonga before earning a promotion to Double-A Chattanooga on July 18. Since the promotion, Seager is batting .333/.356/.495.

Seager was the starting shortstop for the California League in the All-Star Game against the Carolina League in Wilmington, Delaware in June. He also started at shortstop for the U.S. at the MLB Futures Game in July.

In addition to Seager, Rancho Cucamonga’s head groundskeeper, Rex Whitney, was honored with the Groundskeeper of the Year award for his excellent work on LoanMart Field throughout the 2014 season.
