  • Corey Seager Absent From Monday's Lineup

    Headshot for Corey Seager

    Texas Rangers shortstop Corey Seager is absent from the team's starting lineup on Monday as they take on the Tigers in Detroit. With Seager on the pine to start, Josh Smith will play shortstop and bat fifth in the lineup against Tigers right-hander Reese Olson. Seager will get the day off on Monday after starting each of the team's last five games. The two-time World Series MVP is hitting .304/.400/.393 to pick up where he left off last postseason, but it's come with only one home run and five RBI in the early going. Fantasy managers will need to remove him from their lineups for Monday's action. Ezequiel Duran is also in the lineup at third base and is batting sixth. Smith has gotten a hit in his only career at-bat against Olson, while Duran is 0-for-1 in his career.

  • Corey Seager Not Starting On Tuesday

    Headshot for Corey Seager

    Texas Rangers shortstop Corey Seager (rest) is out of the starting lineup ahead of Tuesday's game against the Oakland Athletics. Fantasy managers don't need to worry as this appears to be a routine rest day for Seager. He's off to an excellent start, batting .368 with one home run and five RBI in nine games. Josh Smith will cover shortstop versus southpaw Alex Wood on Tuesday. Fantasy managers should expect Seager to be back in the lineup for their next game.

  • Corey Seager Hits First Home Run Of The Season Wednesday

    Headshot for Corey Seager

    Texas Rangers shortstop Corey Seager hit his first home run of 2024 on Wednesday in a 4-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays. It was a solo shot off of Rays starter Aaron Civale, which was the only run Civale gave up on the day. Seager is now 8-for-22 (.364) on the season, but Wednesday's homer was his first extra-base hit of the campaign. The four-time All-Star also has three RBI and four runs scored while drawing two walks to four strikeouts. If there were any concerns about his offseason sports-hernia surgery, it seems those can be put to rest. For now, he looks to be on track for another Seager-esque season, which again should be plenty productive in a potent Texas lineup.

  • Corey Seager Taking Easter Off

    Headshot for Corey Seager

    Texas Rangers shortstop Corey Seager is not in the team's starting lineup on Sunday against the Chicago Cubs. With Seager taking the day off on Easter Sunday, Ezequiel Duran will make the start at the 6 and bat fifth for the Rangers against Cubs left-hander Jordan Wicks. Despite having sports-hernia surgery in January, Seager was ready to roll for Opening Day on Thursday and has gone 5-for-10 with two RBI and a run scored in the first two games of the 2024 season. Fantasy managers will need to remove the two-time World Series MVP out of their starting lineups for Sunday's games, but he should be right back in there on Monday when the Rangers start a series in Tampa versus the Rays. With Seager out on Sunday, outfield prospect Wyatt Langford will hit in the two spot behind Marcus Semien.

  • Corey Seager Gets Into Cactus League Action

    Headshot for Corey Seager

    Texas Rangers shortstop Corey Seager (hernia) made his Spring Training debut Saturday. Seager was at shortstop, hitting second to start the game. The 29-year-old had sports hernia surgery in January. Saturday marks his first game action of the spring. Even with the limited action, Seager is not a lock to open the season on the IL. Saturday marks the last game for the Rangers in Arizona but they will play their final Spring Training games on Monday and Tuesday in Texas. 2023's runner-up for the American League MVP award, Seager should be viewed as a top-five or six shortstop for fantasy purposes. Getting into 119 last season, the World Series champion produced a massive .327/.390/.623 slash line with 33 home runs and 96 RBI.

  • Corey Seager Could Play In Exhibition Games Next Week

    Headshot for Corey Seager

    Texas Rangers shortstop Corey Seager (hernia), who had sports-hernia surgery in January, has been taking live batting practice since March 18 and could get a few at-bats in the team's exhibition games against the Boston Red Sox next week before Opening Day on March 28. Seager, who was the runner-up for the American League MVP award in 2023, was on the injured list twice last year due to hamstring and thumb injuries. The Rangers are currently deciding if he'll need a minor-league rehab assignment to start the 2024 campaign. Even if the 29-year-old two-time World Series MVP isn't ready for the start of the 2024 regular season, he should be considered by fantasy managers as a top-10 shortstop in a strong Rangers lineup.

  • Corey Seager Takes Batting Practice Monday

    Headshot for Corey Seager

    Texas Rangers shortstop Corey Seager (hernia) took live batting practice in camp on Monday for the first time since having sports-hernia surgery on Jan. 30. Manager Bruce Bochy said that Seager could be in the lineup on March 25-26 for the team's exhibition games against the Boston Red Sox at Globe Life Field. While Seager is making good progress in his rehab, he said himself that he's still unsure if he'll be ready to play on Opening Day on March 28. If the 29-year-old reigning World Series MVP is able to play in any Cactus League games in the next week or in the two exhibition games against Boston, there's a good bet that he'll be ready for Opening Day. In one of the best offenses in baseball and a great hitter's park in Texas, Seager is ranked as RotoBaller's No. 7 fantasy shortstop despite coming off offseason surgery.

  • Rangers Optimistic That Corey Seager Will Be Ready For Opening Day

    Headshot for Corey Seager

    Texas Rangers manager Bruce Bochy said he is more optimistic now about shortstop Corey Seager's (hernia) availability for Opening Day at the end of March. Seager had offseason hernia surgery but is coming along nicely this spring and should be ready to go for fantasy managers to kick off the 2024 regular season. The 29-year-old reigning World Series MVP has resumed swinging a bat and has also been taking ground balls and playing catch in camp. Despite missing some time last year due to hamstring and thumb injuries, he still finished with a .327/.390/.623 slash line, a 1.013 OPS, a career-high-tying 33 home runs, 96 RBI and 88 runs scored in 119 regular-season games to earn his fourth All-Star selection. Seager is ranked as the No. 33 overall fantasy player for the 2024 season.

  • Corey Seager Takes Light Swings On Monday

    Headshot for Corey Seager

    Texas Rangers shortstop Corey Seager (groin) took some light swings on Monday. He underwent sports hernia surgery in January, and his status for Opening Day is in doubt. Rangers manager Bruce Bochy says he'll know more about his Opening Day status next week. The 29-year-old had an impressive 2023 season, slashing .327/.390/.623 with 33 home runs, 96 RBI, 88 runs, and two stolen bases over 536 plate appearances. He could have easily surpassed 100 runs and 100 RBI had he not missed time due to thumb and hamstring injuries. Seager has an NFBC ADP of 25, and it appears he will likely avoid the injured list, making him a top-five shortstop and a solid pick at his current ADP.

  • Corey Seager Could Play In Cactus League Games

    Headshot for Corey Seager

    Texas Rangers shortstop Corey Seager (hernia), who had sports-hernia surgery in January, could get some Cactus League at-bats before the end of spring training. "I'm hopeful," manager Bruce Bochy said. "To be honest, I don't know for sure. He caught the flu -- that probably slowed things down just a hair. But we'll see where we're at by the end of this week." Despite going on the injured list twice in 2023, Seager was the runner-up for the American League MVP award after finishing with a .327/.390/.623 slash line, a career-high 1.013 OPS, 33 home runs, 96 RBI and 88 runs scored in 119 games. The four-time All-Star and World Series MVP might open the year on the injured list, but he should still be considered a top-five fantasy shortstop.

  • Corey Seager Hopes To Be Ready For Opening Day

    Headshot for Corey Seager

    Texas Rangers shortstop Corey Seager (hernia) is doing some incline walking and riding a stationary bike and is hoping to be ready for Opening Day. Seager still isn't sure if he'll be ready for the first game of the 2024 regular season, but it's a good sign that he's doing some physical activities after undergoing sports-hernia surgery this offseason at the end of January. It's an injury that the 29-year-old World Series MVP suffered in the postseason. If he's not ready for Opening Day, Ezequiel Duran and Josh Smith would be two candidates to start at the 6 for Texas. Even if Seager isn't ready early on, the 2023 American League MVP runner-up should be considered a top-five fantasy shortstop after a fantastic season for the Rangers last year.

    Mike's Take RosterResource and Mike Kurland's MLBPlayingTime each have Seager penciled into the two-hole in their projected lineups.

  • Corey Seager Undergoes Sports-Hernia Surgery

    Headshot for Corey Seager

    Texas Rangers shortstop Corey Seager (hernia) underwent surgery on Tuesday for a sports hernia. The Rangers are hopeful he'll be ready for Opening Day. Seager's injury first occurred in the playoffs and the initial thought was rest was the best remedy, but the injury didn't improve, making surgery the best option over managing during the season. General manager Chris Young said the team has minimal concern and are unlikely to look for an infielder the rest of the offseason. It's something to keep an eye on during spring training, but it shouldn't really affect the 29-year-old World Series MVP's fantasy stock this spring. Seager had a career-best .327 average in 2023 in his second year with the Rangers while also hitting 33 home runs and driving in 96 despite missing time with hamstring and thumb injuries. Despite his hernia surgery, Seager is an elite fantasy shortstop.
