Yasiel Puig was held out of the Dodgers’ starting lineup on Tuesday after tweaking his left hamstring at the end of Monday’s walkoff win over the Mariners.
And the 24-year-old Cuban is sitting out again Wednesday, with Andre Ethier covering right field in the Dodgers’ series-finale against the visiting M’s.
Puig’s hamstring injury is not considered serious. He should be able to return to action Friday for the start of at three-game weekend set against the Rockies. Los Angeles has a scheduled off day on Thursday.
Puig was batting .222/.300/.481 with two home runs and three RBI over his first six games this season.
