Los Angeles Dodgers phenom Yasiel Puig was forced to leave Friday's contest against the Colorado Rockies early with a foot injury, but it doesn't sound like there's anything to be overly concerned about. 

The team's official Twitter feed had the news:

Scott Van Slyke will take over in right field after Yasiel Puig lines a foul ball off of his left foot. #Dodgers

Puig was held out of the lineup on Saturday.
