Yasiel Puig returns to the Dodgers’ starting lineup

From beat writer Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times comes word that Yasiel Puig will be back in the Dodgers’ starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Giants after appearing in just one game over the last eight days because of a left hamstring injury.

Puig played in Saturday’s game versus the Rockies and even went 2-for-3 with a double and a run scored, but he was hobbling around the basepaths and in the outfield, so he got a few more days of maintenance.

The 24-year-old Cuban star boasts an .886 OPS in 34 plate appearances this season for the Dodgers, who lead the National League West with a record of 9-3.
