Puig back in lineup after experiencing dehydration

MIAMI -- Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig was back in the starting lineup Thursday after apparently experiencing dehydration Wednesday night.

Manager Don Mattingly said the reason for Puig's limping while he ran Wednesday night was calf cramps. Mattingly said Puig received intravenous fluids after the game and was likely to receive them again before Thursday's game.

"They [trainers] said he's fine," Mattingly said. "We just tell him to be under control."

Although Puig homered Tuesday night after entering the game in a double switch, that's the only hit in his last 18 at-bats.
