LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Dodgers rookie Yasiel Puig is out of the Los Angeles lineup because of a sore left hip.

Puig wasn't starting against Colorado on Saturday.

The outfielder left Friday night's game after four innings. His hip has troubled him since he ran into the fence making a catch on July 3.

Puig is hitting .392 with eight home runs and 19 RBIs.
