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.

Wnile Puig (hand) is not in Saturday's lineup, manager Don Mattingly indicated he could have played, and that he'll be available to pinch hit and will likely rejoin the lineup Sunday, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports.

It sounds like Puig's hand issue has subsided for the most part, so it's possible he'll receive an at-bat in a pinch hitting role Saturday. It also sounds as though he should be good to go for Sunday's contest, but the lineup card should confirm whether or not that's indeed the case.

Puig (hand) remains out of the lineup Saturday against the Marlins.

A callus on Puig's hand was reopened earlier in the week, and it seems he's still dealing with some discomfort while gripping and swinging the bat. He did, however, make a pinch-hit appearance in Friday's game and may very well be available in a similar capacity Saturday. Andre Ethier will draw the start in right with Enrique Hernandez in left.

Puig (hand) was a late scratch Thursday, the Los Angeles Times' Dylan Hernandez reports.

Puig, who is dealing with a callous on his hand, was in the original lineup but obviously the callous was still an issue during batting practice. Scott Van Slyke will move to right field and Alex Guerrero will play left with Alberto Callaspo getting inserted at third base. Consider Puig day-to-day.

Puig (hand) is starting in right field and hitting fifth Thursday against the Cubs, Dodgers reporter Alanna Rizzo reports.

He is dealing with a callous on his hand, but it is not enough to sideline him Thursday. Puig has five hits in his last four games and is slashing .311/.387/.500 in limited action this season. Consider him relatively healthy moving forward.

Puig's status for Thursday's game remains uncertain because of a callous on his hand, Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times reports.

Puig was a late scratch from Wednesday's game and Alex Guerrero took his place in the lineup. The Dodgers will have to update his status prior to Thursday's series finale, but Puig can still be considered day-to-day.

Puig was a late scratch from Wednesday's lineup, MLB.com's Ken Gunick reports.

Per Mark Saxon of ESPN Los Angeles, a callous on his hand was reopened, and he needed to have the wound bandaged before leaving the field with the team training staff. With Puig likely unable to swing the bat, Alex Guerrero will step into the lineup to play left field and bat fifth in the order, moving Andre Eithier over to right. Consider Puig day-to-day heading into Thursday's series finale in Chicago.
