Mookie Betts, the renowned Dodgers star, exited the loanDepot park on crutches after the team's resounding 10-0 victory over the Marlins on Thursday evening.

The need for crutches arose from an incident during the first inning when Betts fouled a pitch off his left foot, courtesy of the Marlins' left-hander Braxton Garrett. Remarkably, Betts initially shrugged off the discomfort, staying in the game without apparent issues.

However, as the evening progressed, natural swelling began to affect his foot. This prompted the cautious use of crutches, with the intention of preventing any potential escalation of the injury.

To ease concerns, an X-ray was performed at the ballpark, and fortunately, it returned negative results, according to sources cited by MLB.com. The pivotal question now revolves around Betts' availability for the upcoming clash against the Nationals on Friday.

Although it remains uncertain whether he'll grace the Dodgers' lineup, the team remains hopeful that his absence won't be prolonged. The ultimate determination hinges on Betts' condition come Friday morning.

In the midst of this injury scare, it's important to acknowledge Betts' exceptional performance in Thursday's victory. He reached base in an impressive four out of his five plate appearances, reinforcing his MVP-worthy campaign in his fourth season with the Dodgers.

Betts currently boasts a career-high of 38 home runs, while simultaneously leading the Dodgers with 99 RBIs and an impressive 1.020 OPS, solidifying his irreplaceable role on the team.
