Yasiel Puig listed as day-to-day after hitting the right field wall in Sunday’s walk-off loss

Sunday’s series finale in Miami against the Marlins ended in ugly fashion for the Marlins. With the game tied 4-4 with Adeiny Hechavarria on first base and two outs in the bottom of the ninth, Jeff Baker lined a Jamey Wright offering to right field. The ball carried well and caromed off of the wall ahead of a leaping Yasiel Puig. Hechavarria scored and the Marlins walked off 5-4 winners.

As the Marlins rushed the field to celebrate, Puig remained on the ground in right field. Trainer Stan Conte came out and eventually helped Puig leave the field.

Video of the attempted catch:

Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports that Puig was given a concussion test and the results were negative and the outfielder is listed as day-to-day. Manager Don Mattingly said Puig was “pointing to multiple areas” when asked where he was hurting.

Puig’s performance will obviously be something everyone will be closely monitoring in the coming days. He has been a top performer for the Dodgers, going into Monday’s road series against the Nationals with a .309/.397/.500 slash line.

    MRI on his ego scheduled for tomorrow.

      You know what’s great about your jealousy? It’s the multiple comments using almost exact phrasing on different articles about the same wall crashing attempt of catching a ball that looked like it may have led to a concussion. Muy bueno!

      • gothapotamus90210 - May 5, 2014 at 8:09 AM

        I’m not sure what replay you watched, but his upper back and upper arm hit the wall. At no point did his head hit anything, the fence or the ground. He fell like a ton of bricks grabbing his face, like Aaron Rowand did after he broke his face on the fence a few years back. It all seems a bit contrived to me. Even Mattingly called bullsh-t on his merry-go-round of injuries.

        The ball hit him in the head moron.

        ‘Contrived’? The guy went full speed into the wall! I’m 100% positive that Donny baseball isn’t calling bs on this particular incident. His ego was certainly checked at the door on that play, or he would have pulled up instead of sacrificing his body in order to help his team win. Love him or hate him…the dude went balls out for his team on this one.

    Hope Puig gets well soon ( for the sake of my coll buds who wants to see him play like damn). MLB really needs to put more additional padding in the outfield walls now if they don’t wanna see injuries like this from happenin further.

    • Old Gator - May 4, 2014 at 10:05 PM

      He’ll be OK. He has no concussion. Some bruises and bumps and he was winded pretty good, but there ackchereley is a lot of padding on that particular wall.

      • renaado - May 4, 2014 at 10:15 PM

        Wheew! I’m anticipatin a “mabuhay” cheer when they hear this.

    when interviewed, Brian McCann said, “karma for the bat flip”

    • vallewho - May 5, 2014 at 8:30 AM

      karma would be for McCann to gets his protruding teeth knocked-out.

    Get that disgrace to baseball off the field forever

    • renaado - May 5, 2014 at 12:14 AM

      Dude… Ain’t that a bit much?

      • CyclePower - May 5, 2014 at 1:38 AM

        A bit? seanthejarhead is probably a troll, but if not, I’d be curious to have him explain the blind, white hot rage he and others have for Puig. Puig strikes me as immature more than arrogant and he really doesn’t bother me. I don’t get the Puig hate.

      • tigertigerwoodsyall - May 5, 2014 at 1:10 PM

        Puig is immature…as most of us were at that age. He’s learning (hopefully) from his mistakes. Mickey Mantle was a world class jerk. Should he have been kicked out of baseball?! Puig is young and dumb, not a jerk.

    • koufaxmitzvah - May 5, 2014 at 7:45 AM

      I am impressed by your inability to avoid articles you don’t like. It’s like you’re a mindless robot with no sense of self. Not bad for an empty shell of a man.

    • djandujar - May 5, 2014 at 11:01 AM

      What a dick. Then again, you were a marine.

  5. infieldhit - May 5, 2014 at 12:55 AM

    If Puig and Harper collided on the field, you would probably achieve warp speed.

    • apkyletexas - May 5, 2014 at 2:25 AM

      No, but you’d get 12 weeks of combined DL for torn ligaments and cartilage damage and such, and they would each hit sub-.250 for 7 weeks after getting off the DL. And we would get a breathless blow-by-blow of every haircut, speeding ticket and tweet from each of them the entire time.

      Meanwhile, Mike Trout and Andrew McCutchen would be rolling towards MVP nominations with nary a peep from the press. As usual. Which is doubly weird because both of them are very funny and quotable – in fact, more so than Puig or Harper.

      • koufaxmitzvah - May 5, 2014 at 7:50 AM

        Yes. If anyone around here knows about “humor” and “quotables” it’s the ultra Puig-bashing Circle of Jerks.

        Ya’ll stay classy, now, y’hear?

    • gothapotamus90210 - May 5, 2014 at 8:07 AM

      It would be the equivalent of the flux capacitor, finding the rosetta stone and the resurrection of jesus all in one.

  6. ch0psuey - May 5, 2014 at 5:57 AM

    Ya, there’s a wall there bud.

    • koufaxmitzvah - May 5, 2014 at 7:51 AM

      Bottom of the 9th, 2 outs, runner on 1st. He gave his all to make a catch to go into extras, but I see your point.

      Battery chuckers just chuck batteries.
