Los Angeles Dodgers star Corey Seager suffered a fractured bone in his right hand when he was hit by a pitch in Saturday's game against the Miami Marlins, the team announced.

He fractured the fifth metacarpal in his hand, according to Juan Toribio of MLB.com.

The Dodgers placed Seager on the 10-day injured list Sunday. While he won't need surgery, manager Dave Roberts said he'll miss at least a month due to the injury, according to Michael J. Duarte of NBC Los Angeles.

Roberts added that Gavin Lux will be the team's primary shortstop while Seager is sidelined, according to Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register.

Los Angeles has dealt with a number of injuries amid a relatively slow start to the 2021 season. Following a win over Miami, the Dodgers sit third in the NL West at 22-17.

Seager entered play Saturday hitting .267/.355/.425 with four home runs and 22 RBIs.

Los Angeles recalled catcher Keibert Ruiz from Triple-A Oklahoma City in a corresponding move.
