Rangers’ Corey Seager May Be Spectator vs. Dodgers, His Former Club

An observer might be the main draw on Tuesday when the Los Angeles Dodgers take on the Texas Rangers in the opening game of a three-game series. Previous Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager was supposed to make his re-visitation of Los Angeles, yet he is managing avoided hamstring snugness that has kept him with regards to the beyond three Officers games.

Seager’s Impact and Injury

During six entire seasons, Seager was a standout player for the Dodgers. He was awarded National League Rookie of the Year in 2016 and named World Series MVP in 2020 for guiding Los Angeles to the championship. Prior to the start of the 2022 season, he entered free agency and agreed to a deal with the Rangers. In the previous season, he assisted Texas in securing another championship victory and once again received the title of World Series MVP.

On Sunday, the Officers won the finale of an end of the week series against the San Francisco Goliaths without Seager. While the veteran shortstop offered no assurances that he would play against the Dodgers, he downplayed the seriousness of his most recent injury.

Semien’s Resilience

The Rangers nearly lost another middle infielder in Sunday’s 7-2 win when Marcus Semien was hit in the helmet by a fastball on the first pitch of the game. However, he remained in the contest, scored the first run, and hit a home run in the victory. “Everybody’s been talking about how bad we’ve been,” Semien told reporters Sunday. “It’s good to kind of break out.” Texas was undecided on a starter for Tuesday’s series opener.

Dodgers’ Recent Performance

The Dodgers won two out of three games against the New York Yankees over the weekend in a highly anticipated series. Nevertheless, Trent Grisham from New York managed to hit a three-run homer in the last match, resulting in a score of 6-4. Teoscar Hernandez led Los Angeles’ offense during the weekend. During a win on Saturday with a score of 11-3, he made three home runs, including a grand slam.

For those interested in baseball betting strategies, the potential absence of Seager and the current form of both teams could be key factors.

Following a string of defeats in the previous month, the Dodgers currently hold a record of 8-4. The Dodgers were supposed to win two out of every three games, but the team has fallen short of expectations in the first 60+ games. The Dodgers remain in control of the National League West, but they need to aim for more consistent performance.

Mookie Betts’ Perspective

“We did alright,” Dodgers star Mookie Betts told reporters at the completion of the Yankees series. “There’s obviously a lot of things that we have to fix. I mean, situational hitting. I think that’s one of the main things. Just making sure (we’re) playing the game the right way, doing everything the right way because come postseason time we’re going to have to execute those things.”

Pitching Matchup: James Paxton vs. TBD

The Dodgers will open the series against the Rangers with left-hander James Paxton on the mound. Paxton (5-1, 4.19 ERA) absorbed his only loss of the season when he lasted just 1 2/3 innings against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday, giving up seven runs (six earned) on six hits. In 15 career starts against Texas, tied for his most against any club, he is 3-4 with a 4.40 ERA. He has not faced the Rangers since 2019, but in one September outing, he had a 12-strikeout game against them.

Conclusion

The question of whether Corey Seager will make the anticipated return to Dodger Stadium remains in the spotlight as the Dodgers prepare to play host to the Rangers. As the season progresses, both teams are looking for consistency and momentum. With James Paxton set to begin for the Dodgers, they intend to gain by their home-field benefit and proceed with their new run of structure. The Officers, in the mean time, will hope to expand on their new win and conquered their battles, wanting to see Seager back in real life soon.
