LOS ANGELES -- Kiké Hernandez, who left in the eighth inning of the Dodgers' loss to the Cubs on Sunday, has a strained hamstring, manager Don Mattingly said, and the Dodgers placed Hernandez on the 15-day disabled list before Monday's game vs. the Giants.
Mattingly said the injury is about the same severity as injuries to Howie Kendrick and Yasiel Puig. Kendrick has been on the disabled list since Aug. 10 while Puig has been out since Friday.
