Puig was placed on the DL along with right-hander
Puig strained his hamstring in the series opener Friday and didn't play Saturday. He missed four games in a five-game stretch last week because of problems with the same hamstring.
"It's just a matter of not wanting to continue on," Manager Don Mattingly said. "We really feel like he'll probably be able to play in four or five days. But we're in the same situation we were in last week, where we wait four, five, he plays three and then something else. I think, at this point, get the thing right, make sure we have him for the long haul."
In Puig’s absence,
Peralta is sidelined with what the team is calling a right neck strain.
