10:12 AM ET 07.13 | What used to be the Yasiel Puig Home Run Watch has turned into the Puig Injury Watch. For the second consecutive game, Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly pulled the 22-year-old outfielder from the game because of an aggravated left hip. "This is day to day," Mattingly said after the Dodgers' 3-0 loss to Colorado. "We just have to do a better job of communicating. Guys get banged up, if he needs a day off ... there's no shame in that." Puig, who was pulled in the fifth inning after grounding out twice, said his condition improved from Thursday, when he was taken out in the eighth inning. "It feels a lot better, but there's a lot of games left in the season," Puig said. "I'll rest and get some treatment on it tomorrow."

I am so **** tired of hearing about this guy. He has played only a handful of games, and his stock will soon fall quickly.I am glad he didn't make the All Star Game. My only regret is that it would have been great to see a guy such as Max Scherzer blow three past him.The media really needs to see a doctor about its Puig hard-on.

I am so ****-ing sick of hearing about Max Scherzer!!!!!

Funny, last time I checked, the Dodgers were the hottest team in baseball and Puig will be around to annoy you for another decade, so get used to it. HAHAHAHAHAHA!

Is it too early to mention the connection between hip injuries and steroid use?

He needs to slow down the intensity a bit. Make himself less prone to injury.
