The results of an MRI scan underwent by New York Yankees catcher Brian McCann came back negative, according to a report Thursday from the New York Post.
McCann is listed as day-to-day, the report said.
McCann left the Yankees' game against the Seattle Mariners Wednesday in the second inning after developing soreness in his right foot following a groundout. He was replaced in the lineup by John Ryan Murphy.
McCann, who is the second season of a five-year, $85 million contract, was originally injured in a May 24 game against the Texas Rangers. Previous tests and X-rays on the foot following the May 24 game came up negative, as well.
"I think it's something on the bottom of my foot, maybe in the arch area," McCann told MLB.com after Wednesday's game, noting that the pain he felt didn't recede, and quickly crept up into his calf.
McCann said he had a hard time putting weight on his leg Wednesday.
The seven-time All-Star, is hitting .248 with eight homers and 33 RBIs in 45 games this season for New York (29-25), which has won three games in a row and lead the American League East by one game over the Tampa Bay Rays.
