BALTIMORE -- Pirates right fielder Xavier Nady will have a magnetic resonance imaging exam Monday in Pittsburgh after injuring his left shoulder.

Nady was hurt Saturday night when he slammed into a wall while chasing a foul ball. Initial X-rays came back negative.

After Nady is examined by Dr. Patrick DeMeo, the Pirates will decide whether Nady will go on the disabled list or rejoin the team in Chicago for an interleague series against the White Sox.

"It's sore, but I'm trying to be optimistic," Nady said before Sunday's game against the Baltimore Orioles. "Hopefully, I just jammed it or bruised it. I'll find out a lot more (Monday)."

Nady has decent, but not full, range of motion. He can raise his left arm above his head, but feels a sharp pain when he reaches across as if to touch his right shoulder.

"I didn't hear anything pop," Nady said. "I just got significant pain right away. I knew something wasn't right."

Jason Michaels started in right field today against the Orioles.
