Betts leaves stadium on crutches after fouling ball off foot; X-rays reportedly negative

Los Angeles Dodgers superstar Mookie Betts left LoanDepot Park on crutches Thursday after fouling a ball off his foot in the first inning against the Miami Marlins, according to Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times.

Betts fouled the pitch off his foot in his first* at-bat, not his last one, sorry.

Here’s the swing:

Betts, who’s among the NL MVP favorites, exited the game in the eighth as a result of the injury. The X-rays on his foot were negative and the team will see how he’s feeling Friday, a source told Harris.

The 30-year-old Betts has 36 homers with 99 RBIs and a 1.020 OPS over 133 contests for the Dodgers this season.

Los Angeles leads the NL West by 13 games and has the third-most wins in MLB behind the Atlanta Braves and Baltimore Orioles.
