The Los Angeles Dodgers were without Yasiel Puig for the second-consecutive night last night as they took on the Colorado Rockies.  The Dodgers' couldn't inch past the Rockies in the series finale, but they managed to take the series.  They did so with Puig sitting for most of it.  With the off-day Thursday, Puig will have received plenty of rest leading into a weekend series with the Cincinnati Reds. Puig will have three consecutive days off in the books by the time the lineup cards are handed in for Friday night's contest in Cincinnati.  By then, the Dodgers hope Puig's ailing right knee will have cleared up enough to allow him to play.  The Dodgers have been downplaying the injury, but with each day that Puig can't go, it becomes more and more concerning. Puig left Monday night's game when he initially hurt his knee.  He had tried to remain in the game, but the issue continued to bother him throughout the night, and Puig eventually had to be lifted.  He was diagnosed with a mild knee sprain after the game. As the Dodgers look to clinch the National League West, they would love to have Puig on the field.  He has been a driving force for the club's success.  Puig is hitting .351/.411/.564 with 14 home runs this season.  He should easily win Rookie of the Year.
