Cody Bellinger was hit on the knee by a 96 mph fastball from Cincinnati Reds starter Luis Castillo on Monday night.

X-rays on Bellinger’s right knee came back negative.

Bellinger, with a .433/.513/.925 slash line through his first 18 games, remained in the game until Alex Verdugo replaced him in right field for the next half-inning.

Dave Roberts expects the typical soreness and stiffness on Tuesday, but it doesn’t appear as if Bellinger will miss an extended period of time.
