09:28 AM ET 08.04 | While capturing a club-record 13th consecutive road win, the Dodgers watched Yasiel Puig make a diving catch in the seventh, only to land with his glove hand bent backward as he skidded on the turf. He finished the inning but left at the start of the eighth. The Dodgers said he has a hand contusion and called his status -- drum roll -- day to day. One of those we'll-know-more-tomorrow jobs. Of course, that's the same thing the Dodgers said when Matt Kemp sprained his ankle July 21 and he might not be back until September. "I feel fine," Puig said to reporters in Chicago. Puig said he had a similar injury during his time at double-a Chattanooga this spring and was out two weeks, but this did not feel as serious. The Dodgers said the bruise was between his left thumb and index finger. Puig was wearing a brace on his left hand after the game.

I'm no fan of the Dodgers, but I do enjoy watching this kid play. I hope he doesn't have to go on the DL.
