Dodgers outfielder Andrew Toles exited Tuesday game against the Pirates following an awkward fall in the seventh inning.

Toles was attempting to save a no-hit bid for Julio Urias but come up short, as an Andrew McCutchen line drive bounced over the left field fence for a ground-rule double. Toles suffered a right leg injury when he fell to the ground.

The 24-year-old will receive an MRI on Wednesday.

In other injury news, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts indicated that the team has no plans to rush first baseman Adrian Gonzalez back on the field. 

"Adrian's on a slow program," Roberts said prior to the game.

The emergence of rookie Cody Bellinger has allowed the Dodgers to go on without a hole in the lineup at first base, as Gonzalez takes his time in his recovery. The consensus is that Gonzalez will not return until he is at 100 percent.

Hyun-Jin Ryu is set to be activated from the disabled list this week, and will start on Thursday against the Rockies.
