Yasiel Puig to restart rehab assignment Thursday
From J.P. Hoornstra of the LA Daily News ...
Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Puig should be able to return to the active major league roster sometime next week if he’s able to avoid further setbacks. Puig first began a rehab assignment on May 7, but he reaggravated his left hamstring a day later and got shut down for over three weeks. He hasn’t played in a game for Los Angeles since April 24.
Puig’s return creates some issues with Andre Ethier, Joc Pederson, and Alex Guerrero all playing well. But that is a good problem to have, and injuries and production levels usually sort these things out.
Puig, 24, was batting .279/.380/.465 through his first 50 plate appearances this season.
