Dodgers' Puig sits out after getting hit in hand
Puig was struck on the left hand by a pitch from Joe Kelly in the third inning on Saturday. Matt Kemp pinch-hit for Puig in the eighth inning of the 4-2 loss to the Cardinals.
Andre Ethier was slated to start in right field and bat fifth on Sunday night.
Puig was hitting .308 with 12 homers and 52 RBIs in 92 games.
