X-rays returned negative on Max Muncy's right ankle. Muncy will be out again on Sunday in terms of starting, but Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told reporters that he could potentially be available off the bench in a pinch-hitting situation. The versatile infielder should be considered day-to-day, but it does appear that as long there is not a setback, he's not going to need a trip to the injured list.

The hot-hitting 24-year-old carries a .407/.467/.593 in 30 plate appearances over his last seven games.
