Denver, CO (Sports Network) - Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig was
removed from Wednesday's contest against the Colorado Rockies an inning after
crashing into the right field wall.
Puig made a sensational catch on a deep fly ball from Nolan Arenado in the
fifth, but slammed awkwardly into the wall on the play. He stayed grounded for
several moments and appeared to be clutching his leg.
He remained in the game after doing some warm-up runs, and provided a
sacrifice fly in the sixth. However, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly replaced
him in the field in the bottom of the frame. Skip Schumaker took over in left
field and Andre Ethier shifted over to Puig's spot in right.
Puig ended the night 1-for-3 and also scored a run. The 22-year-old Cuban
phenom is batting for an incredible .440 with eight homers and 18 RBI in 28
games this season.
