Due to a slump that’s lasted over a month, Los Angeles Dodgers All-Star outfielder Yasiel Puig is now batting just .290 after hitting 4-for-26 thus far in the month of September and just .216 in August.

Though the Dodgers still have a 2.5-game lead over the San Francisco Giants in the National League West division standings, manager Don Mattingly said he’s considered a change in center field.

However, such a change may be easier said than done. Puig is the distinct option in center field after a year of multiple changes between outfielders. He is the best defensive option among the outfielders with experience, which leaves Mattingly hopeful he can catch fire.

This season, Puig has 13 home runs and 60 RBIs. However, he has not hit a home run since July 31 and has just five RBIs since Aug. 1.
