Sunday in Miami, Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig crashed into the wall on the final play of the game and had to be helped off the field as the victorious Marlins celebrated. He was able to pass concussion tests but also indicated that "multiple areas" of his body weren't feeling right.
And Monday in Washington, the Dodgers' lineup does not include Puig.
This isn't really surprising for several reasons. First of all, the dude just ran into a wall and it sounds like his whole body aches. Secondly, the Dodgers essentially have four starting outfielders for three spots, meaning it's pretty easy to slot Carl Crawford in left, Matt Kemp in center and Andre Ethier in right while making Puig sit out.
As far as Puig's status moving forward, the Dodgers have continued to say he's day to day. He may miss Tuesday's game as well, but expect him to return at some point this week.
Puig, 23, is hitting .309/.397/.500 with five doubles, two triples, four homers and 21 RBI this season.
