Yasiel Puig left Saturday’s game after the seventh inning  with a left wrist contusion.  The Dodgers outfielder injured his thumb making a diving catch.

He finished playing the seventh inning and was replaced in the eighth inning by Skip Schumaker.

Dodgers manager  Don Mattingly said “We’ll see where’s he at tomorrow” when asked about Puig playing the series finale Sunday.

Puig has been day-to-day twice before during his two months in the big leagues. He had a shoulder problem after the team’s brawl with the Diamondbacks in June, and then missed some time with a hip problem in July after crashing into the outfield wall.

Before leaving Saturday’s game, Puig went 2-for-3 with a walk and strikeout, bringing his batting line to .376/.429/.600 in 53 games.
