X-rays were taken on Saturday evening and the results were negative, but Puig has some soreness and a bruise. Andre Ethier is starting in right field, Matt Kemp is in left field, and Scott Van Slyke will get his 15th career start in center field on Sunday.
Puig should return to action on Monday night for the Dodgers’ series-opener at the Pirates’ PNC Park.
He’s batting .308/.396/.519 with 12 home runs, 27 doubles, and 52 RBI in 92 games this season for Los Angeles.
