Los Angeles Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig is back in the spotlight, but this time not because he was late to the stadium on game day. The 23-year-old injured his thumb during Saturday’s game against the San Francisco Giants after diving head first into first base.

Mattingly announced after Saturday’s game that the thumb was just a little sore, and he was going to see how the thumb felt the following day before deciding whether or not Puig would play on Sunday. Results from X-rays were negative but Puig did not play on Sunday, instead undergoing an MRI. The results of the exam revealed what the Dodgers have called a strain and more is expected to be known in the coming days.

Having four high-caliber outfielders on the team is proving advantageous as Puig has missed two games already in just one weekend’s worth of play.

    Just to throw a few amounts available, good ones can be
    possessed for as little as $100. I read online that it changes the color of your carpet and was thinking that this was impossible, but it really does.
    You’d be better off taking it into the shop to ensure that things get fixed rather
    than doing it yourself and risking failure.
