X-rays on Plawecki's left knee came back negative following his departure from Saturday's Grapefruit League game, James Wagner of the New York Times reports.

It appears that Plawecki, who was on the receiving end of a brutal collision Saturday, is fortunately dealing with little more than a contusion and some soreness with the knee, which likely takes a long-term absence off the table. Plawecki will presumably miss at least a few Grapefruit League games while he recovers from the injury, but he appears at limited risk of missing Opening Day.
