This has been a quick turnaround for Puig as Mattingly said he made "miraculous" improvement on Thursday to go from running at 80 percent to 100 percent. As for what Puig will be doing in Los Angeles, the Dodgers' manager was vague, simply repeating: "He'll be here this weekend."
Mattingly said Puig hit a single and walked in his simulated game and stole a base on the third attempt after the hitter fouled off a pitch on Puig's first two tries.
"It's a great sign," Mattingly said.
