Dodgers placed OF Yasiel Puig on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 25, with a left hamstring strain.
Puig initially injured the hamstring nearly two weeks ago and just hasn't been able to get over the hump. The Dodgers think he could be ready in 4-5 days, but they've decided to finally play it safe and go ahead and make the DL move. Puig should be ready to go when his 15 days are up. Andre Ethier will see the lion's share of at-bats in right field while Puig is on the shelf. Apr 26 - 2:15 PM

Yasiel Puig (hamstring) hit in the batting cage on Sunday.

It would seem to be a good sign that he's going to avoid the disabled list for now. Puig has missed two straight contests and six games overall across the last two weeks with a left hamstring injury.

Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is not in the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

It's the second straight game he's missed after aggravating his left hamstring on Friday and sixth contest he's missed overall. The Dodgers could wind up placing Puig on the disabled list, although they've yet to announce such a move. Andre Ethier is in right field Sunday. The club is also going with Alex Guerrero at third base and Justin Turner at second.

Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is not in the Dodgers' starting lineup on Saturday night.

Andre Ethier is starting in right field instead. Puig aggravated his left hamstring on Friday night and is considered day-to-day for now. He missed four games earlier this week with the same hamstring issue.

Yasiel Puig is listed as day-to-day after aggravating his left hamstring during Friday's game.

While it's a day-to-day situation again, one wonders if the Dodgers might want to stick him on the DL this time in order to get him back at 100 percent next time. He already missed four games with the hamstring earlier in the week. Andre Ethier will probably get the start on Saturday.

Yasiel Puig exited Friday's game in the sixth inning with an apparent leg injury.

Puig got hit on the left knee in the first and was down for a couple of minutes before staying in. Still, that might not have been the reason for his absence; he seemed to have a different issue with his leg while running to first base in the sixth. Perhaps his hamstring was acting up again. Either way, he'd seem to be day-to-day.

Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is back in the Dodgers' lineup Tuesday.

He had played just once over the last week due to a hamstring issue. Puig is sporting a .267/.353/.533 batting line with two homers and four RBI in the early going for the Dodgers.
Apr 21 - 6:06 PM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly is hopeful that Yasiel Puig (hamstring) will be ready to return to the lineup on Tuesday.

Puig returned to action Saturday after missing a few days with a hamstring issue, but he's sitting out Sunday with more soreness. It doesn't appear to be a major concern at this point, but we'll have to wait and see how he feels after the off day. Andre Ethier will see more playing time while Puig is out.
Apr 19 - 2:07 PM

Yasiel Puig is not in the Dodgers' lineup Sunday.

Puig went 2-for-3 at the plate in his return to action Saturday after missing the previous four days with hamstring soreness. It's not clear at this point if he had a setback or if the Dodgers are just easing him back into things. Andre Ethier is in right field Sunday, while Justin Turner is at third base instead of Juan Uribe, Scott Van Skyle is in left field rather than Carl Crawford and A.J. Ellis is catching over Yasmani Grandal.

Yasiel Puig went 2-for-3 with a double, an RBI and a walk Saturday against the Rockies.

Yasiel Puig (hamstring) remains out of the Dodgers starting lineup on Friday.

Puig tweaked his left hamstring while making a catch during Monday's game and is sitting out Tuesday. He finished Monday's contest, though, and Mattingly said the outfielder tried to talk his way into the lineup, so it's obviously a minor injury. Andre Ethier is in right field Tuesday.

Puig tweaked his hamstring while making a catch during Monday's game. He finished the contest but looked noticeably hobbled, so manager Don Mattingly will play it safe and rest him. Consider the outfielder day-to-day. Andre Ethier is handling right field Tuesday.
