Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Chicago Cubs.
Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said he had planned to rest Gonzalez on Sunday, but moved it up one day after chatting with the four-time All-Star.
''Seeing him this morning, he looked a little stiff and stuff,'' Mattingly said. ''He needed a day and I know if he'd play today he would have been fine.
''I could tell just by the way he answered that I felt he needed a day. So I figured I'd do it today.''
Gonzalez is hitting .301 and leads the Dodgers with 120 hits, 15 homers and 66 RBI.

courtesy of Harry How/Getty Images It was the best double play turned this year and it happened Thursday night in Chicago. Los Angeles Dodgers’ shortstop, Hanley Ramirez made an incredible stop with his momentum going towards third base. Instead of spinning his body around to make the throw to second, he backhand’s a long flip to Dodgers’ second baseman Mark Ellis with...

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly pushed Zack Greinke's scheduled start back to Monday, saying he wanted to keep his starting pitchers fresh and rested.
Mattingly, who hinted on Saturday that he might make this move, also kept Yasiel Puig out of the lineup because the outfielder has a hurt left thumb. Stephen Fife will start Sunday against the Cubs.
The move will also give Dodgers...
Has anyone made so many ridiculous catches in such a short span of time as Yasiel Puig? It seems like the Los Angeles Dodgers rookie right fielder tacks one or two grabs onto his highlight reel every game.
Even when the catch doesn't count as an out, Puig makes it interesting — like this one at Wrigley Field.
After initially ruling this catch an out, the umpires conferred...
Los Angeles Dodgers' right fielder Yasiel Puig left Saturday's game against the Chicago Cubs with a contusion near the base of his left thumb.

We kind of had the feeling Yasiel Puig would do this last night in his first game in Chicago. He seems like the kind of guy who likes to start a weekend early – and start the weekend early he did.
The ball was flying out of Wrigley last night like crazy. The Dodgers won the game 6-4, their 12th straight road win. The highlight was clearly Puig catching this low breaking ball and...
If you have the opportunity to see Yasiel Puig play, pay the money, because you’re likely to see something special. Friday night’s Puig highlight was a diving catch, as he was coming in and to his left and robbed Chicago Cubs IF Darwin Barney of a sure hit. What I want you to watch is the economy of steps. By the time the camera catches Puig who got a great jump, he makes...
Chris Capuano scattered six hits over 6 1-3 innings and the Los Angeles Dodgers set a team record with their 13th straight road win, 3-0 over the Chicago Cubs on Saturday.
The Dodgers, who haven't lost on the road since July 6 in San Francisco, eclipsed the 1924 mark set by the Brooklyn Robins.
Carl Crawford broke open a 1-0 game by driving in two runs with a single in the...
The Los Angeles Dodgers’ Hanley Ramirez is hoping to avoid a possible third disabled list-stint of the season after jamming his shoulder during Sunday’s game against the Chicago Cubs. During a pop-up in the seventh inning, Ramirez had to run all the way into foul territory by the brick wall, that separated seated fans from the field, in order to attempt to record the out. He...
The Los Angeles Dodgers had their liveliest crowds of the season on this last homestand but they seem to save their best baseball for when most of the people in the building are against them.
The Dodgers flew through the night to the Midwest and then played one of their most explosive games in a week in a 6-4 win over the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field on Thursday. It was the Dodgers...
Your browser does not support iframes. Yasiel Puig plays as hard as one can, and the all-out approach often puts his body in jeopardy. On Saturday against the Chicago Cubs, the phenom hurt his thumb making a diving catch in the right-center gap. Puig laid out to rob Starlin Castro of a hit in the [...]

Cespedes at HR Derby, Werth Gm4 NLDS, Kuo in 2007, BigPapi vs NYYanks, Puig in 2nd month…all great bat flips. None make my top 6.
