Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig was pulled from the game against the Colorado Rockies in the fifth inning for the second time in as many nights for precautionary measures because of an aggravated left hip.

Scott Van Slyke took over in right field for Puig, who went 0 for 2.

Puig didn't seem to run full speed on his two groundouts, and Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly replaced the 22-year-old rookie before his third at-bat.

Mattingly said before the game that the team would be monitoring Puig's movement and range of motion.

Puig aggravated his hip in Thursday's 6-1 win over the Rockies and was removed from the game in the eighth inning.
