Washington Nationals star Juan Soto said on Monday that "everything was fine" on his left calf, but said he would miss a few days to start his mission.

Soto finished a 7-4 defeat to Miami on Sunday in the fourth inning after his calf tightened while running on the base and was tagged at his home. He had an MRI scan on Sunday night.

"We will be fine," Soto told reporters prior to the match on Monday. "They said it was just a little tight, so it will take a few days to see what happens. It all depends on how I feel every day."

The outfielder wasn't the starting member of Nuts Monday Matinee for the Miami Marlins he was visiting. Soto decided to join the game when he was asked to win in the bottom of the eighth inning. He took a four-pitch walk and was replaced by a pinch runner in Washington's final 3-2 defeat.

23-year-old Soto hit .226, the lowest in his career, with 15 home runs and 33 RBIs in 80 games this season.

Soto was a runner-up in the National League MVP last season when he had a batting average of .313 and an on-base percentage of .465, the highest in the league. He had 29 home runs and 95 RBIs in 151 games.
