The Dodgers also put righthander Joel Peralta on the 15-day DL with a "dead arm," promoted righthanders Scott Baker and Carlos Frias to the active roster and placed righthander Brandon League on the 60-day disabled list due to ongoing shoulder issues.
Puig was held out of Saturday's game after reinjuring his left hamstring during Friday's 3–0 win over the San Diego Padres at Petco Park. Puig first sustained the injury last week, missing four of five starts with what was described at the time as a "tight" left hamstring.
After Friday's game, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly mentioned the DL could be a possibility for Puig.
Over 11 games, Puig is hitting .279 with two home runs, four RBI and an .845 OPS.
The Dodgers entered Sunday's series finale with the Padres 11–6, 1 1/2 games ahead of the Colorado Rockies in the NL West and two games ahead of San Diego.
