Dodgers rookie phenom Yasiel Puig had to leave Friday night's game with a bruised left foot, the Dodgers announced. This came after two foul balls off the foot.

It should be noted, however, that Puig left in the fifth inning of a 10-0 (at the time) Dodgers lead in a meaningless game, as the Dodgers are locked into the third seed in the NL playoffs. He was hobbling a bit, yes, but that tends to happen immediately after taking a blow to the foot.

So, for now, let's just expect this to end up a precautionary move.

Puig, 22, is hitting .322/.393/.538 with 21 doubles, 19 homers, 42 RBI, 66 runs and 11 steals in 102 games this year.
