Player Notes
Yasiel Puig is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Reds.

Advice: Puig was pulled from Tuesday's game after he turned a would-be extra-base hit into a single by admiring the deep shot to right field. Following the game, manager Dave Roberts said, "It's something that when we talk about playing the game the right way, we have to be accountable." Trayce Thompson takes Puig's place in right field on Wednesday and is hitting fifth. Even setting Tuesday's lack of hustle aside, Puig is slashing just .247/.289/.382 as Memorial Day weekend approaches.

Yasiel Puig was removed from Tuesday's game due to a lack of hustle.

Advice: Puig spent a long time admiring a shot to the right field wall in the bottom of the sixth inning, turning a potential extra-base hit into a single. He did drive in a run with that hard liner and would eventually come around to score, but it was a bad look for a guy who still owns a weak .247/.289/.382 overall batting line this season. "We talk a lot about playing the game the right way," said Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. "For me, mental mistakes, we’re going to live with. But in my opinion, he should have been on second base. It’s something that when we talk about playing the game the right way, we have to be accountable. That was the decision I made."

Yasiel Puig was removed from Tuesday's game against the Reds with an apparent injury.

Advice: Puig appeared to jam his hand sliding around Howie Kendrick's bat while scoring on a Kendrick shot to first base in the bottom of the sixth inning that Joey Votto couldn't handle. Puig got on base that inning with an RBI single off the right field wall (he stared it down a good while before running). Puig finished the night 1-for-3 with one run scored and one run batted in.

Yasiel Puig went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer Friday against the Padres.

Advice: Puig went opposite field off Carlos Villanueva for his fifth homer in 153 at-bats this season. He might not have it figured out completely just yet, but he has to be getting closer to ending his slump.
