Texas Rangers To Be Without Best Hitter For A Month

Tough break for the Texas Rangers, who will have to play without their $325M Man for at least a month due to a Grade 2 hamstring strain.

You can see the strain occur as he's legging out a double in a game on Tuesday night.  

Terrible timing for Seager, who was off to a sizzling start to the season, and was at or near the top of nearly every category for shortstops thus far.  

The 28-year-old three-time All-Star was first in on-base percentage for all SS, at .469, second in OPS+ (184), tied for second in hits (14), and third in OPS (1.008) through 11 games.  

Seager signed a massive 10-year, $325M contract with the Rangers in the 2021 offseason, then had a career-high 33 home runs in his first year in Texas, though his OPS was a bit lower than normal, at .772. 

This year, he was hitting .359 with a 1.008 OPS. He'll now have to hope he can pick up where he left off in about four weeks' time.
