Who doesn’t love a good MLB oddity? Whenever weird stuff happens in baseball, it seems to immediately make its way around the internet, perhaps more so than your average walk-off homerun highlight. It’s quirky and it’s fun, so naturally, everyone wants to see it.
But just a weekend into games and Corey Seager might have the MLB oddity of the year. The Rangers shortstop was batting against the Blue Jays when his bat broke in half. But it wasn’t the way that you might be thinking.
Seags didn’t even make contact with the ball and his bat split in half. In the clip, you can see the bottom of the bat still in his right hand as his top hand carries the barrel over. It happens on occasion across MLB, but it’s always wild to see.
What the heck happened to Corey Seager's bat? ?

The Dodgers had a rough weekend in Colorado. One of the best lineups in MLB couldn’t get going and the pitching completely fell apart on Sunday against a team that they should sweep, or at least take a series from. One big concern from that series? Julio Urias’ velocity. The young southpaw saw a massive dip on his fastball, and it will be something to watch all season long.
Kenley Jansen was one of the most coveted free agent relievers in MLB this offseason. The Braves scooped him up on a one-year deal worth $16 million to lock down games for them, stealing him away from the Dodgers. But his debut did not go nearly as well as they had hoped, and that has fans in Los Angeles feeling slightly better.
