Yasiel Puig banged up, gets 'bell rung' after crashing into wall
Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig hurt himself crashing into the wall trying to rob the Marlins of a walk-off base hit.
The Marlins beat the Dodgers on Jeff Baker's walk-off base hit on Sunday, giving the Fish their MLB leading 14th win at home. On the play, Yasiel Puig crashed hard into the outfield wall and appeared to hurt himself. Here's the video:
The trainers checked out Puig while the Marlins celebrated and he eventually made his way off the field. After the game, manager Don Mattingly told reporters that Puig "pointed to multiple areas (that hurt)," but he did pass a concussion test. That was the biggest concern. He is officially listed as day-to-day.

Initial word is puig should be ok. While teammate described him as having "bell rung" LAD official said he checked out fine— Jon Heyman (@JonHeymanCBS) May 4, 2014
Puig, 23, went 1-for-4 with a walk on Sunday and is hitting .309/.397/.500 on the season. The Dodgers have been rotating four outfielders -- Puig, Carl Crawford, Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier -- in three spots, so they can afford to give him some extra rest after that high-speed crash. That was scary.
