Dodgers News: Yasiel Puig Suffers Injury Setback

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig was not activated as planned from the disabled list on Monday after suffering a bout of tightness in his injured left hamstring during a rehab assignment on Friday.

Here's True Blue LA with the report:

Puig played right field for the Quakes on Friday against the High Desert Mavericks (Rangers) in Adelanto, his second of three scheduled games with Rancho Cucamonga. Puig homered in his first at-bat, struck out in the second inning, then grounded to third base in the fifth inning.

But as he was running to first base in that third at-bat, Puig pulled up as he was running down the line.

Puig left the game and hasn't been able to return to his rehab assignment since. He was scheduled for an MRI on Monday.

"I felt a little bit of tightness when I was running and I just want to rest a little bit," Puig said with the aid of an interpreter to Ron Cervenka of Think Blue LA. "I just want to rest a little bit, exercise and get ready for baseball again. It was a good night out."
