Dodgers rookie Yasiel Puig leaves game with bruised foot
After fouling two pitches off his left foot, Dodgers phenom Yasiel Puig had to leave Friday night's game. It doesn't seem serious.
It should be noted, however, that Puig left in the fifth inning of a 10-0 (at the time) Dodgers lead in a meaningless game, as the Dodgers are locked into the third seed in the NL playoffs. He was hobbling a bit, yes, but that tends to happen immediately after taking a blow to the foot.
So, for now, let's just expect this to end up a precautionary move.
Puig, 22, is hitting .322/.393/.538 with 21 doubles, 19 homers, 42 RBI, 66 runs and 11 steals in 102 games this year.
