Puig made an early exit in each of the past two games due to a sore hip. He may still be suffering from the after-effects of colliding with the right field wall at Coors Field in Denver, Colo., on July 3; since then, Puig is 10-for-39 at the plate, lowering his season batting line to .392/.424/.622.
The Dodgers will also be without Carl Crawford, who is out of the lineup for the second straight game due to lower back stiffness. Crawford is 2-for-25 since returning from the disabled list on July 5 and hasn't started since Tuesday.
Matt Kemp's presence on the DL makes three impact outfielders out of the lineup for Los Angeles, which sits two and a half games out of first place in the NL West entering Saturday.
