Rangers slugger Adolis García scratched from starting lineup with right forearm soreness

Texas Rangers outfielder Adolis García was unexpectedly removed from the starting lineup on Sunday due to soreness in his right forearm. García underwent an MRI to determine the extent of the injury. This comes after a collision with second baseman Marcus Semien during a popup play in the outfield, in which both players were involved. García, who was named an All-Star this season, will be closely monitored as the team awaits the results of the MRI.
In a recent interview, Manager Bruce Bochy shared that the San Francisco Giants had planned for their primary right fielder, García, to be the designated hitter in their upcoming series finale against the Los Angeles Angels. However, García sustained a significant hit to his right forearm, causing concern for his ability to play. Bochy stated that García would be getting an MRI to assess the extent of the injury. He expressed hope that, after a day of rest, García would be able to return to the field.
In a post-game interview, Giants manager Bruce Bochy briefly mentioned that the MRI results for one of their players looked promising. He didn’t provide any further details about the player or the injury.

Meanwhile, the Texas Rangers will enjoy a day off on Monday before heading to Philadelphia for a three-game series against the Phillies. This break will give the team a chance to rest and prepare for the upcoming games.
In the sixth inning of the game between the Rangers and the opposing team, there was a collision between Semien and García. Semien was running to catch Taylor Ward’s popup to shallow right field, while García was coming in for the same ball. As the ball dropped to the ground, García pulled up and went down to a knee to retrieve it. Unfortunately, Semien couldn’t avoid the collision and tumbled hard into García. Despite the collision, both players were able to continue playing and finished the game. The Rangers went on to win the game 3-2 in 13 innings.
In a thrilling game, García, who was named the AL Championship Series MVP last year, made a significant impact. He smashed his 11th home run of the season in the sixth inning, leveling the score at 1-1. García’s batting average stands at .251, and his impressive 35 RBIs rank him fourth in the American League this season.
