Yasiel Puig Newsbeat
Thursday, May 14, 2015
Manager Don Mattingly said outfielder Yasiel Puig will be sidelined “at least a couple weeks,” the closest the Dodgers have come to providing a timetable for Puig’s return.
Puig has been troubled by a strained left hamstring since April 13. He missed four of the next five games, then went on the disabled list April 26.
He was eligible to be activated Sunday, but reinjured the leg playing for Class A Advanced Rancho Cucamonga on Friday night. An MRI exam on Monday confirmed the strain is not healed.

This doesn’t sound good.
Ryu was supposed to begin throwing to hitters this week but did not make the trip with the Dodgers. Instead, he stayed behind to work out at Dodger Stadium and the training staff “decided to give him a couple days off” after his velocity decreased during his most recent bullpen session.
Mattingly said Ryu was clocked at only 82-83 mph during his throwing session Friday at Dodger Stadium, “a couple ticks below” what he had thrown in his previous workout. The lost velocity is suspected to be a result of “that tired-arm thing” pitchers often go through during spring training, the manager said.

Yasiel Puig is really close with a particular family in Los Angeles, and that family has a 10-year-old Cardinals-loving boy who has made it his mission to exasperate the Dodgers’ eccentric outfielder….
“His mom calls him ‘The Cardinal,’” Puig deadpanned. “We don’t even know his name anymore. … I take him to the stadium, I put the tickets under my name, I introduce him to all of my teammates, and he shows up with a Cardinals shirt. He’s driving me nuts. I can’t win with him. His cousins all have [Dodgers gear]. Not him. We have to do something. I have to make him change his mind. We won the second game and that’s it. He cried, and after that, he started laughing at us again.”...
Puig spoke highly of the Cardinals, how great their team is and how smart their manager is. He thanked them for teaching his team the proper way to play baseball and said they’ve become the Dodgers’ truest adversary, more so than even the defending-champion and division-rival Giants.
for his generous support.
