Seager was batting .359 with one home run and four RBIs in 11 games prior to the injury. Last season, his first with Texas, he smacked a career-best 33 homers while batting .245 with 83 RBIs in 151 games.
Seager, 29, spent his first seven major league seasons with the Los Angeles Dodgers before leaving as a free agent. He signed a 10-year, $325 million deal with Texas following the 2021 season.
The Rangers also designated veteran right-hander Ian Kennedy for assignment and recalled left-hander John King from Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday.
Kennedy, 38, struggled this season and was 0-1 with a 7.20 ERA in 11 relief appearances. He allowed 10 runs (eight earned) and 11 hits over 10 innings.
Kennedy, a 17-year veteran, is 104-114 with 66 saves in 492 career appearances (290 starts) with six teams. This was his second stint with the Rangers after he appeared in 32 games for them in the 2021 season.
King, 28, is 2-1 with a 2.08 ERA in nine outings (two starts) at Round Rock. He hasn’t appeared for the Rangers this season but went 9-9 with a 4.01 ERA in 72 relief outings for them over the past three seasons.
