UPDATE: Gurnick reports that Puig left the game with a mild right knee strain.

7:00 p.m. ET: According to Ken Gurnick of MLB.com, Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig had to exit today’s game against the Rockies in the sixth inning with an apparent injury.

The early speculation is that Puig might have hurt his right knee diving back into first base on a pickoff throw. The 22-year-old stayed in the game and ran from first to third on a single from Adrian Gonzalez, but was in obvious pain after sliding into the base. He eventually scored on a sacrifice fly by Hanley Ramirez, but didn’t come out to right field in the bottom of the inning.

Puig, who entered today’s action on a .458 (11-for-24) tear over his last six games, went 1-for-3 before exiting. He is batting .351/.411/.564 with 14 home runs, 32 RBI, and 10 stolen bases in 80 games since his call-up in June.

    Watch the Doyers go back to being an overpaid 500 club.

      Are there suddenly 164 games in a season?

      Oh, that’s right. Dodger haters are genuinely stupid.

      I always seem to overlook the little things. Like your pea-sized brain.

    You’ve got to be pretty messed up to wish injury upon any professional athlete.

    Hold your breath if you think the Dodgers are going to show down.
