Dodgers News And Rumors: MRI Reveals Left Thumb Strain For Yasiel Puig

[new_royalslider id=”13″]

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.
