During the 6th inning on Thursday night, Max Muncy fouled a ball off of his ankle and eventually left the game. Obviously never a good feeling at all, but everything seems to be okay after X-rays came back negative.

The bruised ankle has forced Muncy to walk with a bit of a limp. Don’t be surprised of Roberts gives Max a well-deserved day off tomorrow evening to rest that ankle.
Muncy left the clubhouse limping noticeably.

Max is batting .283 on the season with 17 home runs and 46 RBI in 73 games.
