VIDEO: Yasiel Puig makes great catch, pays for it
Dodgers phenom Yasiel Puig had a rough meeting with the Coors Field wall on Wednesday night. He's day to day at this point, with hip and thigh bruises.
As can be seen on the video, for those who stuck with it for the duration, Puig initially stayed in the game. He was, however, removed in favor of Andre Ethier in the bottom of the sixth inning.
X-Rays were negative, and Puig has been diagnosed with a bruised left hip and left thigh. He's listed as day to day.
"It was a great catch," said Dodgers manager Don Mattingly (MLB.com). "I've got a feeling we'll see a lot of that. He plays like that, and he's going to get hurt."
Puig, 23, is hitting .440/.466/.743 in 116 plate appearances this season.
On this particular play, even if you're suffering from Puig Fatigue, which is understandable, you have to admit that throw back to the infield on a fly after nailing the wall like that was pretty insane.
