Puig (hamstring) is out of the lineup Saturday against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

He left Thursday's game with right hamstring tightness and was out again Friday. It seems safe to say at this point that Puig is prone to hamstring issues, so this is just part of the package with owning him. The Dodgers downplayed the injury on Friday, so he should avoid a trip to the DL. Andrew Toles will start in right field and hit seventh Saturday.

Puig's (hamstring) injury is not considered serious according to manager Dave Roberts, David Vassegh 570 AM reports.

EDGE Analysis

It was initially unclear the severity of Puig's hamstring injury but it's now revealed that it is believed to be a short-term ailment. He's still probably going to be sidelined for a few games but it's likely he won't see time on the DL which is good news for his fantasy owners. The 25-year-old is 6-for-24 with four RBI since the All-Star break.

EDGE Analysis

Puig exited in the seventh inning after tweaking something in his leg while running out a ground ball to third. It's unclear at this point what caused the injury but the 25-year-old has been bothered by knee and hamstring ailments this season so it could just be a flare up. Scott Van Slyke replaced Puig in right field.
