GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig missed a second day of practice on Friday with a bruised right thigh, but manager Don Mattingly said he expected Puig back in action Saturday.

"We're going to be careful with Puig," said Mattingly. "He'll do his workout in the cage and inside today. I think he'll be back tomorrow."

Puig fouled a pitch off his thigh on Wednesday and was limping around the clubhouse afterward. He has not been on the field since.
