CHICAGO (AP) Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig is a late scratch from the Los Angeles lineup because of a sore left hamstring.

The move was announced less than 30 minutes before Tuesday's game against the Chicago Cubs.

Puig is hitting .239 with five homers and 20 RBIs. He had appeared in the 51 of the Dodgers' first 52 games.

Carl Crawford entered the lineup in left field, and Trayce Thompson moved from left to right.

Thompson had missed the previous two games with back spasms.
