Yasiel Puig to have MRI after leaving game with tight hamstring
Wednesday August 19th, 2015

Yasiel Puig will undergo an MRI on his right hamstring after leaving the Dodgers' game against the Athletics on Wednesday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Puig went 1 for 3 with a walk before exiting the game in the eighth inning. He legged out an infield single, but had to be replaced by pinch runner Carl Crawford.

Puig was activated from the disabled list on June 6 after spending nearly two months recovering from a strained left hamstring. Since his return, he is batting .244 with eight home runs and 54 strikeouts.

The A's won the game, 5–4, in the 10th inning on Billy Butler's walk-off double.

The Dodgers remain in first place in the NL West, leading the Giants by two games with a 67–52 record.
