ATLANTA -- X-rays were negative on the lower left leg of Dodgers outfielder Scott Van Slyke, who exited Sunday's 5-2 loss against the Braves after he fouled consecutive pitches off his leg in a seventh-inning at-bat.

Van Slyke said there was no fracture, although it was "pretty sore" having fouled the pitches "an inch apart on the same ligament."

He said he'll be able to return to action immediately, as long as he can tolerate the discomfort.

"I should be good," he said.

Van Slyke, who homered twice Friday night, went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in the finale.
