Yasiel Puig finished 2-for-3 with a walk, an RBI and a stolen base in Saturday's win against Atlanta.
It was a much-needed multi-hit game since the Cuban outfielder entered with just two hits over his past 18 at-bats (.111). Puig has also tied a career best with 11 steals with plenty of time to go. 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. Jul 23 - 5:39 AM

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.

For his part, Puig is now hitting .251/.329/.463 with 15 homers, 42 RBI and nine steals across 259 at-bats. He is well on his way to surpassing his career highs in homers (19) and RBI (69).

Yasiel Puig (hamstring, knee) is in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Angels.

Major League Baseball has rescinded Yasiel Puig's one-game suspension.

Yasiel Puig is dealing with a sore right knee in addition to a sore right hamstring.

Puig sat out Sunday with a sore hamstring, and although he returned to action Monday he didn't look very comfortable. Now, he's apparently nursing a sore knee, as well. It looks like a day-to-day situation. Trayce Thompson is in right field Tuesday.

Yasiel Puig is not in the Dodgers' lineup Tuesday.

Puig returned to action Monday but didn't look totally comfortable as he battles a nagging hamstring issue. Trayce Thompson is in right field. Justin Turner is also getting a breather, as Logan Forsythe is at third base and Chase Utley is at second.

Yasiel Puig is not in Sunday's lineup due to a nagging hamstring issue.

Puig has often had hamstring issues during his career, but Dodgers manager Dave Roberts insisted that this one isn't a major concern. "It's not serious," Roberts said. Cody Bellinger will handle right field Sunday, with Logan Forsythe sliding over to first base and Austin Barnes getting a start at second base.

Yasiel Puig homered and walked after replacing an injured Corey Seager in Friday's game against the Rockies.

It was a surprise to see Puig being held out of the lineup against a lefty tonight, even though he's been far more effective against righties this year. Once he got his chance, he showed why he should have been in there all along. The homer off starter Kyle Freeland was his first versus a lefty in 2017 and 14th overall. He's quietly on pace for a 30-homer season.

Yasiel Puig rocked his 13th homer of the year in Wednesday’s win over the Mets.

He admired the heck out of it too, taking an incredible 32 seconds to tour the bases. Puig’s three-run shot off Tyler Pill put Los Angeles up 5-1 in the fourth inning. The 26-year-old still isn’t hitting for a high average (.247) but he’s rediscovered his power stroke by slugging four homers over his last eight games.

Puig hit a couple of solo shots, one in the sixth inning and one in the eighth to extend the Dodgers' lead. The dongs were his 11th and 12th of the year and matched his homer output since May 19. He's been picking it up in recent days, using four multi-hit games in the past seven days to raise his line to .247/.319/.445.

Yasiel Puig has been suspended for one game after flipping off some Indians fans on Tuesday.

Puig flipped a pair of dirty birds to a group of heckling fans after homering in Tuesday's win at Progressive Field. He is appealing that suspension and will be able to play until his appeal is heard. Major League Baseball is doubtful to lift the one-game sentence.
