Mark Reynolds fouled a ball off a bone near his left big toe during yesterday’s game against the Rays. He was fearing a broken bone at first, but Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports that X-rays today came back negative.
Reynolds is currently dealing with soreness in the foot, but it will not be enough to keep him out of the lineup for tomorrow’s one-game Wild Card playoff against the Rangers.
“It’s sore, but it’s not anything I’m going to sit out over,” he said.
“It won’t be a problem once you get under the lights and get a little adrenaline flowing. We know how important this game is and I’m sure all the pain will go away.”
Reynolds, 29, batted .221/.335/.429 with 23 home runs, 69 RBI and a .763 OPS in 135 games during the regular season. 16 of his homers came after the All-Star break.
