LOS ANGELES No need to worry about Yasiel Puig. His foot is OK, although he was not in the starting lineup for Saturday night's game against the Colorado Rockies at Dodger Stadium. "He's fine today," manager Don Mattingly said. "It's really just me being precautionary with him. We talked yesterday about possibly giving him the day (off) anyway. I want him to play tomorrow, so we're just being safe with him." Puig fouled a ball off his left foot twice Friday night. The second time, he fell to the ground and then hobbled back to the dugout after flying out to right field. He was removed from the game, but X-rays were negative. Puig was not limping before Saturdays game and even took part in batting practice before the Dodgers played the Colorado Rockies in their next to last game of the regular season. Mattingly said he wasnt too concerned about Puig even when he went down, saying, "I've never really seen anybody actually not be able to play the next day from that. It looks really bad, it hurts really bad, but then for some reason that area just doesn't hold the swelling, and the next day they seem to be fine." Mattingly said Puig would be available to pinch hit Saturday. The Dodgers are planning to hold a pep rally for the team after Sunday's game. Fans holding tickets to the game will be admitted to the rally. The Dodgers sold out all three games against the Rockies this weekend, assuring them of 29 sellouts this season. The last time they had more was 1983 when they sold out 37 home games.
