Corey Seager Not in Rangers Lineup Tuesday Against Dodgers

Former Los Angeles Dodgers World Series MVP Corey Seager is making his first trip back to Dodger Stadium since signing with the Texas Rangers in the 2021 offseason. However, he won’t be playing on Tuesday night.

Seager is out of the Rangers’ lineup on Tuesday night in the series opener as he’s been dealing with a hamstring strain. He hasn’t played since June 5, and won’t be making his return on Tuesday night against James Paxton and the Dodgers.

Seager is in the midst of another great season in Texas. The back-to-back All-Star is slashing .271/.360/.472 with 13 home runs, 30 RBIs, and an OPS of .832 in 57 games. He was getting set to make his long-awaited return to Dodger Stadium, but unfortunately, he suffered a hamstring injury just days before.

Now, Seager will have to watch from the visitors dugout for the first time at Dodger Stadium, as the reigning World Series champs take on the 2020 champs. Seager was the World Series MVP for both teams.

Seager will likely get a loud ovation from Dodger fans on Tuesday night. However, he’ll have to wait until at least Wednesday to suit up against his former team.

Seager appeared in one game against the Dodgers last year when they traveled to Texas. In that game, he went 2-for-4 with a home run and a double. That’s his only career game against the team that drafted him.
