Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig starting Saturday following Friday's benching

Apr 5, 12:37 PM

Yasiel Puig's relegation to the bench has only lasted a day. 

The Dodgers outfielder was removed from the lineup Friday after showing up to the game late and was replaced by Matt Kemp. 

It will be the second time in six games that Puig will lead off for the Dodgers this season. In 29 career games batting first, the 23-year-old is hitting .318/.392/.589 with eight home runs and 18 RBI.
