Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig will start Saturday against the Houston Astros after missing the last three games because of a hamstring injury, according to the Los Angeles Times. Puig was not expected to be sidelined for an extended period after leaving Tuesday's game, but manager Don Mattingly said that the team will continue to monitor him, as Puig has been dealing with hamstring issues most of the season. "You get guys who are really muscular, big strong guys, sometimes once the leg injuries come, it seems like they hang around with you," Mattingly told ESPN. "It will be something he is probably going to have to pay attention to throughout his career, making sure he’s loose and making sure he's doing his work properly." Puig, who has a .754 OPS in .72 games this season, will bat second Saturday.

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig is not in the lineup Friday against the Houston Astros because of a hamstring injury, according to the team's official website. Puig has not played since suffering the injury during Tuesday's game against the Oakland A's. Andre Ethier will start in right field Friday, while Carl Crawford will once again start in left field. There has been no indication that Puig will have to be placed on the 15-day disabled list due to the ailment, so the expectation is that he could rejoin the lineup in the coming days. He had an MRI on Wednesday, which showed a minor hamstring strain, and manager Don Mattingly indicated that Puig could be back this weekend. Puig has dealt with numerous ailments this season, and is hitting just .250 with 10 home runs and two stolen bases in 72 games.

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig is not expected to be placed on the 15-day disabled list despite an MRI on Wednesday revealing a minor hamstring strain, according to the Los Angeles Times. Puig had to be removed from Tuesday's game against the Oakland A's in the eighth inning after beating out an infield single, but Dodgers manager Don Mattingly indicated that Puig could return as early as this weekend against the Houston Astros. "He had an MRI. It came back really positive," Mattingly told Fox Sports. "(Trainer) Stan (Conti) is categorizing it as very mild. We feel like it's day to day. ... At this point Stan doesn't feel like it's going to end up being a DL. Obviously we can be a little bit more cautious, too, with Houston and the DH and everything. It's a little easier to go a little bit short if we had to. I don't know if we're going to have to."

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Oakland A's because of a hamstring injury, according to True Blue LA. Puig had to leave Tuesday's game early after suffering the injury, but he will get a few days to rest, as the Dodgers are off Thursday before beginning a three-game series against the Houston Astros on Friday. He has dealt with a number of injuries already this season, which have limited him to only 72 games. The issues have affected him at the plate, as he is hitting just .250 with 10 home runs and 35 RBI after hitting .296 with 16 home runs and 69 RBI in 148 games last season. Despite having one of their outfielders missing considerable time, the Dodgers head into Wednesday's game with a two-game lead over the San Francisco Giants in the National League West.

Puig was 2-for-5 with a double and two runs scored Monday against the Phillies.

Puig's .283/.369/.449 slash is solid enough, but he's managed just three home runs in 138 at-bats and he's yet to steal a base. He's also hitting in the five-hole recently, a move that could result in fewer stolen bases this year than last.
