Red Sox right fielder Mookie Betts made an early exit during Saturday’s contest against the Orioles after bruising his left foot on a collision with Chance Sisco. Betts took a walk to open the first inning and came home to score on an Andrew Benintendi RBI double, where he ran into Sisco at the plate. He was stretched out on the ground for a few seconds after the collision, but was able to walk off the field and stayed in the game another two innings before making his final departure prior to the fourth.

There’s no announced timetable for Betts’ return, but he’s day-to-day for the time being and will likely be cleared to rejoin the Red Sox within the week. He’s impressed so far this season, slugging .360/.450/.620 with nine extra-base hits and a 1.070 OPS in 60 plate appearances.
