Corey Seager planning on quick return to Rangers’ lineup

FRISCO — The ball found Corey Seager early Thursday night, as the first batter of the game, DaShaun Keirsey Jr., chopped a grounder up the middle.
Seager moved into position to grab it and would have had second baseman Luisagel Acuna not cut in front of him.
Seager had to run the bases, just not particularly fast.
He went 1 for 3 at the plate in his first game on rehab assigned for Double A Frisco, grounding a two-run double into the right-field corner in the third inning (the ball should have been fielded Wichita first baseman Alex Isola).
Seager said all was good after exiting the game after five innings. A nine-inning MLB game appears to be in his near future.
