Yasiel Puig went 0-for-2 on Sunday against the Brewers in Cactus League play.

Puig has had only five at-bats thus far, so his .200 average isn't anything to worry about. The 24-year-old outfielder should once again post All-Star caliber numbers in 2015. Last season, he hit .296/.382/.480 with 16 home runs and 69 RBI in 640 plate appearances.

Yasiel Puig is not in the Dodgers' lineup for Game 4 of the NLDS against the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Well, we weren't expecting that. Puig hit a triple on Monday night, but he has struck out in eight out his 14 plate appearances during the series, so Dodgers manager Don Mattingly has decided to switch things up with the season on the line. Carl Crawford will move into the No. 2 spot while Andre Ethier will play center field and bat sixth. Dee Gordon 2B, Crawford LF, Adrian Gonzalez 1B, Matt Kemp RF, Hanley Ramirez SS, Ethier CF, Juan Uribe 3B, A.J. Ellis C, Clayton Kershaw SP.

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.
