Puig went 2-for-2 with a home run, a walk, two RBI, and four runs scored in Saturday's victory over the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Puig was a major contributor to the Dodgers' win Saturday, as he scored four of the team's five runs. Although he endured a stretch that saw him hit just .160 with a .314 OPS over seven games from Sept. 16-23, Puig seems to have broken out of his slump and is looking to finish the season on a strong note. Over the last four games he's 5-for-11 at the dish, with two of his hits being home runs. His recent efforts have brought his line up to .263/.345/.488 for the year.

Puig is in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

Puig was held out of Monday's lineup as a disciplinary measure following a late arrival to the ballpark, but as indicated Monday, his punishment will be limited to the one game. Puig will start in right field and hit sixth in the Dodgers' batting order Tuesday night.

Puig will start Tuesday despite arriving late to the field Monday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Dave Roberts expressed frustration with Puig, but apparently his only punishment will be sitting Monday's game against San Diego. Perhaps the better news here is that the ankle tweak Puig sustained Saturday is no longer bothering him, as he was forced to miss Sunday's game because of it.

Puig is out Monday due to a late arrival to the field, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Puig also tweaked his ankle Saturday, but it appears Monday's absence from the lineup isn't about the injury. With Andre Ethier starting in the outfield Tuesday, it's unclear when Puig will be back in the Dodgers lineup.

Puig (ankle) is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Padres, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

This will mark Puig's second straight game on the bench, however it's unclear if his ankle is still bothering him or if manager Dave Roberts is still holding him out as punishment for a base-running error over the weekend. In the meantime, Enrique Hernandez is starting in right field in his place.

Puig (ankle) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Puig tweaked his ankle on the final play of Saturday's game and will be withheld from the starting lineup a day later. The right fielder downplayed the injury Saturday evening, so it doesn't sound like it'll keep him out for long. He's a day-to-day case moving forward.

Puig said he feels OK despite twisting his ankle on the final play of Saturday's game against the Giants, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Puig went 0-for-4 but reached on a forceout in the ninth, then took it upon himself to attempt stealing second base, per Stephen, and was thrown out by Buster Posey to end the game. The Dodgers should have news on a clearer timetable for his availability before Sunday's contest starts.

Puig is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Giants, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Puig has been on a nice run of late, but he will head to the bench in the series opener. There has been nothing to suggests an injury is in play, so it seems manager Dave Roberts is just rewarding Andre Ethier for his pinch-hit homer Thursday with a start in the outfield. Look for Puig to be back in there for the final two games of the series.

Puig is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Phillies, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Puig will get the day off after starting seven straight games, going 9-for-30 (.300) with a pair of homers over that stretch. In his place, Curtis Granderson will slide over to right field, with Andre Ethier drawing the start in left field.

Puig went 2-for-4 with a solo homer Friday against the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Puig smashed his 26th round-tripper of the campaign to extend the Dodgers lead to two runs in the second inning of a road victory. He's collected at least one extra-base hit in each of his last four games to raise his slugging percentage to .491, and his power along with 14 steals and have made him an excellent fantasy option this year.
