Dodgers Place Yasiel Puig on 15 Day DL

The Los Angeles Dodgers have placed OF Yasiel Puig on the 15-Day DL, after aggravating a hamstring injury on Friday night.  Puig was heating up during a 5 game hit streak that featured 3 straight multi-hit games, raising his batting average from .222 to .293 before Friday night. 

Andre Ethier is the immediate beneficiary, and is relevant again in fantasy baseball.  He started Saturday and picked up 3 hits in 4 ABs, scoring twice and driving in 3 runs on a double and a home run.  He followed that up with 3 more hits, 3 more RBI, 2 runs scored and another home run today.  He is available in almost every league.

With Miami Marlins OF Christian Yelich landing on the DL earlier in the week, OF options are at a premium!  Juan Lagares and Austin Jackson are some other good options.
