PHOENIX -- Down for a few minutes after attempting a diving catch in left-center field, Yasiel Puig was forced to make a fifth-inning exit from the Dodgers’ game against the Cincinnati Reds on Friday.
[Update 3:39 p.m.: Puig said he got the wind knocked out of him when his left side hit the ground. He said he should be able to play on Saturday.]
As Puig lay in the grass, Manager Don Mattingly and two trainers rushed to the outfield. Puig was able to walk off the field under his own power.
It wasn’t immediately known what Puig injured.
The top prospect was charged with an error on the play, which was the end result of a fly ball hit by Brandon Phillips.
