Yasiel Puig went 3-for-5 with an RBI single and a run scored in Thursday's defeat of the Cubs.

Puig has had a good road trip out West, batting .400 (12-for-30) over seven games thus far. He may have broken out of his slump just in time for the Dodgers, who are defending a narrow lead in the NL West. Puig currently rests on a .297/.383/.477 slash line with 14 home runs and 63 RBI.

Yasiel Puig went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in a loss to the Rockies on Tuesday.

Puig had two of the Dodgers' 16 hits on the night, but the two-run shot in the ninth inning gave them just four runs to show for it. The homer was an important one for Puig, who hadn't homered since July 31 before the blast. He's now got 14 home runs and 62 RBI for the year.
Sep 17 - 12:17 AM

Yasiel Puig had another nice game in a rout Monday, going 2-for-5 with a double, a walk and two runs scored.

Puig is 7-for-17 with two doubles and two walks the last four days. He still hasn't homered since July 31, but things seem to be getting better.
Sep 16 - 12:36 AM

Yasiel Puig had three hits and three runs scored in Saturday's drubbing of the Giants.

Sure, everyone had a nice game for the Dodgers tonight, but it's still an important step forward for Puig, who was in a 10-for-73 slump since his last three-hit game on Aug. 15.
Sep 14 - 12:36 AM

Yasiel Puig is batting leadoff for the Dodgers on Wednesday night against the Padres.

Puig is an extended slump and hit seventh on Tuesday night, but manager Don Mattingly has decided to give him the bump in the hope that it provides a spark.
Sep 10 - 5:53 PM

Yasiel Puig (stomach) finished 0-for-2 with a walk in his return to the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

Puig was held out of action on Saturday with a minor stomach problem. An IV did the trick, but the struggling 23-year-old basically seems to be splitting time in center field at this point with Joc Pederson. It's all very poor timing for Puig's fantasy owners. He had a .959 OPS on August 3. That's now down to .861.
Sep 8 - 3:57 AM

Yasiel Puig is out of the Dodgers' lineup with stomach problems on Saturday versus the Diamondbacks.

Puig is getting an IV. Joc Pederson will draw the start in center field on Saturday and could continue to see regular playing time down the stretch this season.
Sep 6 - 6:16 PM

Yasiel Puig is out of the Dodgers' starting lineup again on Saturday versus the Diamondbacks.

Joc Pederson is starting in center field over Puig and could continue to see regular playing time down the stretch. Pederson had a monstrous 2014 season at Triple-A and is the Dodgers' best defensive outfielder by far. He needs to be owned in all mixed fantasy leagues at this point.
Sep 6 - 5:41 PM

Yasiel Puig is not in the Dodgers' lineup Tuesday.

The slumping Puig was moved down to the sixth spot in the batting order Monday and now he's on the bench. Joc Pederson is making his first career start in center field on Tuesday.
Sep 2 - 6:27 PM

Yasiel Puig was dropped down to sixth in the lineup for Monday's game against the Nationals.

Puig has never batted lower than fifth in a start, but his struggles have forced Don Mattingly's hand. The 23-year-old hit .216 with zero homers in August.
Sep 1 - 4:16 PM

Yasiel Puig is not in the Dodgers starting lineup on Friday.

Andre Ethier will get the start in center field for the slumping slugger who could use a mental health day. He will return to the lineup on Saturday.
Aug 29 - 6:19 PM

Yasiel Puig is not in the lineup Saturday versus the Mets.

This is just a day of rest for the center fielder. He is batting .307/.389/.504 with 13 home runs and 59 RBI on the season for the Dodgers.
Aug 23 - 5:30 PM

Yasiel Puig went 3-for-4 with a double and drove in two of the Dodgers' three runs on Friday.

Puig has just one homer since the All-Star break and two since the beginning of June, but he's still hitting a cool .315. Unfortunately, without the homers or steals (none since June), his fantasy value has taken quite a dip.
Aug 16 - 1:49 AM

Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is back in the Dodgers' starting lineup on Monday night versus the Braves.

Puig has been dealing with some hamstring tightness for the past few weeks and was given a day off Sunday.
