Just In: Texas Rangers confirm To Loose Another Top Star From Squad

**Rangers Slugger Adolis García Scratched from Lineup Due to Forearm Soreness**

**ARLINGTON, Texas** — Texas Rangers star Adolis García was removed from the starting lineup on Sunday and underwent an MRI on his right forearm. This followed a collision with second baseman Marcus Semien while both were chasing a popup in the outfield.

Manager Bruce Bochy explained that García, typically the primary right fielder, was initially set to be the designated hitter for the series finale against the Los Angeles Angels.

“The right forearm took a pretty good hit from Marcus, so he’s getting checked out,” Bochy said pre-game. “We’ll do an MRI to see the extent of the injury. Hopefully, with a day off, he’ll be ready to go.”


Bochy later confirmed after their 4-1 loss that the MRI results were positive, without giving further details.

The Rangers have a scheduled day off on Monday before starting a three-game series in Philadelphia.

The incident occurred in the sixth inning when Semien and García both went for Taylor Ward’s popup to shallow right field. Semien collided with García, who had gone down to a knee to retrieve the ball after it dropped. Despite the collision, both players continued and finished the Rangers’ 3-2 win in 13 innings.

García, last year’s AL Championship Series MVP, hit his 11th home run of the season in the bottom of the sixth inning to tie the game at 1-1. He is currently hitting .251 with 35 RBIs, ranking fourth in the American League this season.
