Puig, Ramirez out again for Dodgers

PITTSBURGH (AP) The Los Angeles Dodgers held injured outfielder Yasiel Puig and shortstop Hanley Ramirez out of the starting lineup for Tuesday night's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates, but manager Don Mattingly doesn't believe either player needs to go on the disabled list.

Puig hasn't played since his left wrist was hit by a pitch from St. Louis' Joe Kelly on Saturday. Ramirez took a 98 mph fastball off his left wrist on Sunday from St. Louis closer Trevor Rosenthal.

Mattingly said he's optimistic both players will be available to pinch hit on Tuesday night and called them ''day to day.''

Matt Kemp was to start in place of Puig in right field. Justin Turner was to start for Ramirez.
