"I'll probably give him the day off, see how he feels," Yost said. "I may give him the day tomorrow and see where we are on Sunday."

Soler fouled a 96.7-mph fastball from A's starter Frankie Montas off his left foot and was in pain as he went down on home plate. Soler finished the at-bat by striking out on the next pitch, but he did not come out to the field in the bottom of the second, as Abraham Almonte replaced him in right.

Soler is hitting .268 with nine home runs and 28 RBIs in 57 games this season.
