Yasiel Puig day-to-day with wrist contusion after making diving catch
Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig is day-to-day with a wrist contusion. He suffered the injury making a diving catch on Saturday.
Yasiel Puig is day-to-day with a left wrist contusion, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly told Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times. The outfielder left Saturday afternoon's game in the seventh inning after making this diving catch:
Puig did stay in to finish the inning, but was replaced in the eighth by Skip Schumaker. Mattingly told Hernandez they will "see where he's at tomorrow."
Although he's only been in the big leagues for two months, Puig has shown a knack for the day-to-day injury. He dealt with a shoulder problem following the team's brawl with the Diamondbacks in June, then missed time with a hip problem after crashing into the outfield wall in July.
Puig went 2-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout before leaving Saturday's game, raising his season batting line to .376/.429/.600 in 53 games.
