Dodgers place Yasiel Puig and Joel Peralta on the DL

As announced Sunday on the Los Angeles Dodgers’ official Twitter feed …

Puig initially injured his left hamstring on April 13 while trying to make a catch in the outfield and wound up missing the Dodgers’ next three games. He returned on April 18 and even went 2-for-3 with an RBI double, but he had a noticeable hobble in that game and then had to be pulled from Friday night’s series opener against the Padres with renewed hamstring discomfort. Andre Ethier will presumably serve as the Dodgers’ primary right fielder over the next couple of weeks. He’s starting there in Sunday’s series finale with the Friars.

Peralta has been filling in at closer for LA while Kenley Jansen recovers from offseason foot surgery, converting three saves in three opportunities without allowing a run. Chris Hatcher may be the guy now.
