"I feel well, I feel good. My head's not bothering me anymore," Puig said through a translator. "I wasn't prepared to play yesterday. If the team needs me today I'll be ready to play.

First baseman Adrian Gonzalez was also out of the starting lineup; Mattingly gave him the night off from the starting lineup.
