Garcia was hit in the bottom of the fourth inning by Bobby Miller and initially stayed in the game. He was sent off for a pinch-hitter in the bottom of the fifth.
“I’ll look into it (Sunday),” Texas manager Bruce Bochy told reporters. “He might need a day (off), I don’t know. It just depends on if he can hold the bat.”
Garcia led the Rangers with 24 homers and hitting .260. He also has 80 RBI, which he is tied with Matt Olson for leading the major leagues
Garcia became the first for another hit on Saturday as the Rangers lost 16-3 to the visiting Dodgers
The previous Saturday, Texas placed All-Star shortstop Corey Seager (sprained right thumb) on the 10-day injured list.
