Yasiel Puig bruised his hip

I am hereby starting a petition to eliminate walls in all major league ballparks as they represent a serious threat to the game’s young stars. First Bryce Harper and now Yasiel Puig:

He did, as you can see, make the catch, robbing Nolan Arenado of extra bases.  And he stayed in the game for a while at least, coming up to bat one more time before being removed in a double switch.

Puig, who is hitting .440 with eight homers and who just yesterday was named the NL Player of the Month for June,  is day-to-day with a bruised hip. Don Mattingly thinks he can play, but caution is probably warranted.
