Puig sits out with strained shoulder
LOS ANGELES (AP)
The team says he won't play Wednesday night because he has a strained right shoulder. There was no immediate explanation of how Puig hurt himself, although he participated in the seventh-inning brawl that occurred during Tuesday night's game and was one of six players and coaches ejected.
Puig is hitting .471 with 10 RBIs and four homers in his first 1 1/2 weeks in the major leagues. The 22-year-old Cuban defector was replaced in the cleanup spot by Jerry Hairston Jr.
