Found July 13, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The Los Angeles Dodgers lost outfielder Yasiel Puig from last night’s contest due to injury, while another of the team’s outfielders wasn’t able to suit up at all for the contest with an ailment. Carl Crawford was scratched from last night’s lineup due to a stiff lower back, according to Austin Laymance of MLB.com. Crawford experienced stiffness in his lower back after taking early batting practice yesterday. It’s been a lingering ailment since Thursday, and Dodgers manager Don Mattingly opted to give the veteran the night off as a result of the continued discomfort. "He tried to hit a little bit today, but it seems like it's still not quite where he wants it," Mattingly said. "So we'll just be a little careful and see as he warms up during the course of the game what he'll be able to do." Crawford has struggled since being activated from the disabled list following his hamstring injury. Entering last night’s contest, he hadn’t started the previous two games and had only gone 2-for-25 at the plate since his return. To replace Crawford in left field and at the top of the lineup, the Dodgers used Skip Schumaker. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?

Dodgers Bullpen Much Improved

Through the first couple months of the season the Los Angeles Dodgers bullpen was a mess. The group as a whole had an ERA of 4.65 which is obviously not helpful when you’re in a good deal of games that are close. It’s hard enough to keep a consistency to a bullpen as it is but when the team’s closer isn’t pitching well for an extended period of time it has a ripple effect...

Ailing Yasiel Puig could use time off
