Despite a disintegrating relationship within the Dodgers organization and whirling trade rumors, outfielder Yasiel Puig will be recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City to join the big league team some time this weekend, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

The minor league season ends soon, so Puig will be able to get some additional playing time through early October. The 25-year-old has had a disappointing year, batting .260/.320/.386 with seven home runs and 34 RBI in 303 plate appearances.

The 74-59 first-place Dodgers have managed to get by despite Puig, a slew of injuries, and an underperforming Josh Reddick.

And, hey, speaking of injuries, ace Clayton Kershaw will make a rehab start with High-A Rancho Cucamonga this weekend, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.
