Out since April 24 with a hamstring injury followed by multiple setbacks, Yasiel Puig is now on the verge of rejoining the Dodgers.

Puig went 2-for-4 with a double off the wall in a minor-league rehab game Thursday at Single-A and George Alfano of MLB.com reports that he “hopes to be back with the Dodgers this weekend.”

Puig specifically mentioned wanting to come off the disabled list for Saturday’s game, but added that it’s not his decision and it’s possible the Dodgers will want to play things a little safe to avoid another setback.

Also of note: Puig revealed that his hamstring is still “not 100 percent now, but it felt comfortable.”
