Dodgers place Yasiel Puig, Joel Peralta on disabled list


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) The Dodgers placed right fielder Yasiel Puig and pitcher Joel Peralta on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, MLB.com reports.

Puig reinjured his hamstring Friday, leading manager Don Mattingly to say Saturday that he could possibly hit the disabled list to allow the injury the proper time to rest and heal. Mattlingly said Sunday that the team would "protect" Puig from himself after the outfielder indicated he could play in four or five days.

"It's to the point where we want to get this thing right for the long haul, and in two weeks, [Puig will] be ready to play," Mattingly said. "Yasiel is disappointed. He thinks he'll be ready in four to five days. That's the tough part. We've seen that Yasiel plays at one speed. There's no real putting a governor on him. It's tough for him to say, 'Back off.' We'll protect him from himself."

Peralta was also considered a candidate for the disabled list as he has been dealing with a case of dead arm and has no strength in his shoulder.

"It seems to be lingering, and we want to get rid of it," Mattingly said of Peralta's issue. "We want to eliminate it and move forward. Same with Yasiel. We've messed around enough to say, 'We don't want to play around, play short out of the bullpen and off the bench.'"

With two spots opening on the active roster, the Dodgers purchased the contract of pitcher Scott Baker, who's scheduled to start Sunday's game, while recalling pitcher Carlos Frias from Triple-A Oklahoma City. In order to clear room on the 40-man roster for Baker, the Dodgers transferred Brandon League to the 60-day disabled list.

Dodgers considering DL trip for Yasiel Puig


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Dodgers manager Don Mattingly indicated Saturday that the possibility of sending right fielder Yasiel Puig (hamstring) to the disabled list has been discussed, the Orange County Register reports.

"If it’s the best thing, then it’s the best thing," Mattingly said. "Obviously, he’s very important to us. In a sense, it’s obvious that he’s not important to us if he can’t play. If you’re going to be banged up every third or fourth day or if he tries to run hard and extend, then we’re going to be better off letting him get healthy."

Puig missed significant time last week due to the hamstring issue but returned to the starting lineup Friday. However, he reinjured the hamstring trying to beat out a ground ball on the same day and was out of the lineup Saturday. Mattingly indicated that he'll leave the decision up to the team's medical staff.

"That decision does not come down to me. That decision is for medical," Mattingly said Saturday. "He played three days in San Francisco and did not have one issue. And he played the day game (Thursday). We talked about giving him the day game after the night game in San Francisco. Medical didn’t feel like he needed it. He played well, made some plays, didn’t look like he needed it. Then yesterday obviously he extended trying to beat that play out and it looked like it grabbed on him a little bit."

Puig has hit .279/.380/.465 with two home runs and four RBI in 43 at-bats.
