Yasiel Puig walked off another Dodgers win with a two-run double in the ninth inning Wednesday against the White Sox.
Puig, who had been hitless over the last week, plated Logan Forsythe and Austin Barnes to give the Dodgers a 4-3 win. He has 57 RBI in 372 at-bats, which is pretty good for someone who has spent so much of the year batting eighth. The Dodgers improved to 85-34 with the victory. Aug 17 - 2:12 AM

Yasiel Puig (knee, hamstring) finished 0-for-3 with a walk and a run scored Saturday against the Padres.

Puig had been dealing with some minor knee and hamstring soreness. He owns a decent .807 OPS with 21 home runs, 55 RBI, and 54 runs scored in 110 games this year.

Updating an earlier report, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Yasiel Puig is dealing with knee and hamstring soreness.

Neither injury sounds overly serious but the Dodgers will play it safe by giving him the night off. He's also struggled against lefties this year (.149 AVG in 87 at-bats), which worked as another excuse for giving Puig a breather. The 26-year-old should be back in there on Friday night.

Yasiel Puig is not in the Dodgers' lineup Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

The 26-year-old is loaded with talent and could produce some monster seasons if he ever puts it all together.

Yasiel Puig went 2-for-4 with a double, a steal and two runs scored Tuesday against the Braves.

Yasiel Puig collected three singles with a run scored and an RBI in Tuesday's win against the Twins.

Puig has back-to-back multi-hit games for the first time since May 28-29, and just the third time this season. After a 3-for-22 run from July 15-23, Puig is starting to show some signs of life again at the plate. For some batters, the All-Star break is a godsend. For others, it's an interruption and it takes a while to get back on track. Chalk up Puig for the latter.

Yasiel Puig finished 2-for-3 with a walk, an RBI and a stolen base in Saturday's win against Atlanta.

He isn't quite up to his rookie season levels in the average department (.319), but he is showed plenty of power and striking out less.

Yasiel Puig powered the Dodgers past the Marlins with a pair of homers and four RBI on Friday.

Pretty decent night for a No. 8 hitter. Puig slugged a long solo homer in the fifth inning before connecting for a go-ahead three-run blast off A.J. Ramos with two outs in the ninth inning. He’s now up to 18 home runs, just one shy of his career-high from his rookie season in 2013. His OPS is up to .800 for the year.
