An MRI of Texas Rangers outfielder Adolis García’s forearm reportedly showed no serious injury after he collided with a teammate while tracking a fly ball over the weekend.

The collision between García and second baseman Marcus Semien occurred in a game against the Los Angeles Angels.

Rangers Manager Bruce Bochy said García “took a pretty good shot there from Marcus” during the incident, but both players were able to finish the game, which ended in a 3-2 victory against the Angels, per The Dallas Morning News.

Although Bochy said after the game that the plan was for García to play Sunday’s bout against the Angels as the designated hitter, concerns arose after he was scratched from the lineup shortly before the game began.

García underwent an MRI to determine if there were any serious injuries. Bochy explained that the results “came out pretty good.” He said the team would “see how he’s doing Tuesday.”

“We’re optimistic that he’s going to be fine,” he added, per The Dallas Morning News.

Bochy said that he was “hoping” that García would “be good to go” once he returns from their day off, but according to ESPN, García remains listed as day-to-day on the team’s injury report.

The Rangers will now look to bounce back after losing the series to the Angels as they begin a three-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday at 5:40 p.m.

Despite a slow start to the season, with the Rangers finishing the first 48 games with a 24-24 record, the team remains just two games behind the Seattle Mariners for first place in the American League West division.

Bochy said following the team’s series against Los Angeles that the Rangers were looking to gain some consistency, but he feels confident that the team will pick up their pace as the season continues.

“We don’t feel pressure, not this team with what we’ve been through over the last year,” Bochy said, per WTOP News.

“We’re not playing our best baseball right now, but they’ve been resilient for over a year now, and they’ve shown it this year with all of that we’ve gone through.”
