Max Muncy Provides Injury Update After Leaving Dodgers Game Early on Wednesday

Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Max Muncy provided an update on his hand after his hand was struck by a pitch during his first at-bat Wednesday versus the Texas Rangers.

On Thursday, Muncy shared that his x-rays came back negative. Muncy added that the swelling has gone down, but he has yet to try swinging a bat, via The Athletic’s Fabian Ardaya.

Muncy initially remained in the game after he was hit by Rangers pitcher Cody Bradford. However, he was removed from the game before his second at-bat.

After the game, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts shared that Muncy had sustained a left-hand contusion and was going to get x-rays. Now, both Muncy’s preliminary and latest x-rays have both come back negative.

Muncy has appeared in four Cactus League games for the Dodgers so far, where he has recorded a home run, two RBIs and a run. He likely won’t appear in another Spring Training game until he has swung a bat again, but the good news is he appears to have avoided a major injury.
