Dodgers place RF Yasiel Puig on DL with hamstring pull


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2015) When Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig stated that the hamstring injury he sustained Thursday was worse than his last one, he wasn't kidding. He has been placed on the disabled list.

Puig grabbed at the back of his leg after hightailing down the line trying to beat out an infield hit.

He goes down on a 10-game hitting streak in which he's batting .305 (13-for-37). His .256 average is at its highest point in five weeks.

Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig leaves game with likely hamstring injury


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2015) An apparent hamstring injury sustained beating out an infield single in the ninth inning forced the removal of Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig from the game Thursday afternoon in Cincinnati.

The team has yet to confirm any details in the injury, including its seriousness and possible amount of time Puig could be sidelined.

Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig not worrying manager over power outage


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2015) Don Mattingly claims to be unconcerned about the declining power numbers of Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig. But perhaps he should be.

The numbers are pronounced. Puig has just three home runs in 35 games this season. He has just seven in nearly 400 plate appearances since appearing in the Home Run Derby before the 2014 All-Star Game.

Puig missed 38 games this year due to a hamstring injury and four more when a blister opened on his left hand. Mattingly believes those setbacks have played a role in the power outage.

"Before he was hurt he already had two and that was in like 12 games," Mattingly explained to the Orange County Register. "So he was off to a decent start. Then he got hurt and that was an extended time. ... Home runs come in bunches. I don't really worry about home runs. I worry about at-bats and I think they've been OK."

Puig indeed owns a strong .287/.378/.457 slash line. But he hasn't blasted off in his last 20 games.
