Dodger Stadium's multi-million-dollar renovations aren't providing that much of a home-field advantage so far.

Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Max Muncy suffered a finger injury during Sunday's intrasquad game when he wasn't able to properly pick up an inside pitch due to the new center-field batter's eye.

"I couldn't really see the ball," Muncy told ESPN's Alden Gonzalez. "I'm trying to adjust to some of the changes out there. It came up and in on me and hit me in the finger."

The Dodgers' storied home underwent significant renovations during the prolonged offseason, including some restructuring of the outfield pavilion, which also led to the batters' eye being tweaked.

Some of the seats in the center-field area that were painted black to help hitters pick up the baseball are no longer part of the arrangement, according to Gonzalez.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts expressed some concern with the new layout, calling it "unsettling" that Muncy couldn't see the ball. Muncy himself admitted that it may be "something we have to get used to."

Fortunately, for the Dodgers, Muncy wasn't seriously hurt in the incident. While his injured left ring finger was wrapped on Wednesday, he's expected to be ready for the team's regular-season opener in two weeks.
