Yasiel Puig returns to Dodgers lineup after hip flexor injury
Outfielder Yasiel Puig will return to the Los Angeles Dodgers lineup on Monday after being listed as day-to-day following a hip flexor injury.
Puig left the Dodgers' Saturday game against the Colorado Rockies early after sustaining the injury while sliding into second base to break up a double play in the fourth inning, and the team announced he was day-to-day shortly after the game.
Los Angeles also lost Dee Gordon to injury on Saturday when the second baseman had to leave the game due to hip pain. Gordon is not listed as part of the team's lineup for Monday's matchup with the Cincinnati Reds, but said after sustaining the injury that he was "confident" he would not be out more than a few days.
