PHILADELPHIA -- Phillies left fielder Corey Dickerson left Wednesday night’s 3-1 loss to the Braves at Citizens Bank Park with soreness in his left foot.

X-rays were negative, but he will receive further imaging on Thursday. There is reason for concern because after Dickerson fouled a ball off the foot last week in Cincinnati he has twice left games after failing to run out of the batter’s box.

“Yeah, it stinks,” Dickerson said. “I’ve been grinding through it, especially the situation that we’re in right now trying to make a push. When I got hit in the foot in Cincinnati, it’s been pretty uncomfortable since, trying to tolerate as much as I can and it just had this weird, coming out of the box, this give-type feeling. Pretty painful. It’s something we’re just going to double check and make sure with another test.”

Dickerson entered Wednesday batting .300 with 10 doubles, two triples, eight home runs, 34 RBIs and a .592 slugging percentage in 33 games since he joined the Phillies following a trade with Pittsburgh in July.
