Hamstring injury puts Puig on DL for first time

Posted: Updated:
SAN DIEGO, CA (NBCNewsChannel)---The Los Angeles Dodgers superstar and former Chattanooga Lookout Yasiel Puig is headed to the disabled list for the first time in his young career.
Puig has been nursing a sore hamstring and reaggravated it in Friday's win over San Diego trying to leg out an infield hit.  
Puig immediately pulled up in obvious pain grabbing his left hamstring.  
Dodgers manager Don Mattingly says he thinks Puig could play in 4 to 5 days, but wants to make sure the hamstring is completely healed and  doesn't bother him all year long.   
Puig was actually well enough to hit in the batting cage Sunday morning, but the dodgers thought it best to place him on the 15-day dl.  

In other Dodgers news, reliever Joel Peralta was also placed on the 15-day dl due to shoulder soreness.
