Mookie Betts is unlikely to play in the Los Angeles Dodgers' weekend series against the Washington Nationals after fouling a ball off his left foot, although the team received good news when both a CT scan and an MRI came back negative.
Manager Dave Roberts announced the results of Friday's tests after the Dodgers' 8-5 win over the Nationals. The seven-time All-Star outfielder was diagnosed with a bone bruise.
Betts, the 2018 American League MVP, was off crutches Friday, a day after he was injured in Miami.
"I still stand by I don't see him making an appearance this weekend," Roberts said.
Betts leads the National League in on-base percentage (.411) and slugging percentage (.609) and ranks third in RBIs (99), fourth in home runs (career-high 38) and fifth in batting average (.314). He hit .455 with 11 home runs and 30 RBIs in August.
The Dodgers return home Monday for a three-game series with the San Diego Padres.
