Puig Out vs. Mariners

Tuesday, April 14

Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reported Puig would miss the Dodgers’ game against the Mariners on Tuesday with a hamstring injury. Shaikin previously noted Puig suffered from hamstring tightness on Monday.

Even though the Dodgers have a loaded roster, their outfield isn’t as strong as it used to be. Puig is the clear standout with Matt Kemp in San Diego. Carl Crawford has had moments but isn’t what he used to be. Andre Ethier is best used as a platoon player. Joc Pederson is loaded with talent but is still a rookie who will face growing pains. 

Puig‘s ability to get on base, hit for power and create plays with his legs make him valuable to the lineup. The Dodgers may not need to score a lot of runs with their pitching staff, but if they have to do so without their dynamic playmaker for any length of time, things could turn sour in a hurry.
