Yasiel Puig back in lineup for Dodgers vs. Diamondbacks

USA TODAY Sports

The Dodgers right fielder is back in the starting lineup on Monday night, batting cleanup after dealing with a sore hip over the weekend.

PHOENIX -- The Dodgers will welcome back one injured outfielder to their starting lineup on Monday night against the Diamondbacks, but it isn't Matt Kemp, yet. But Yasiel Puig is back in the lineup, in right field and batting cleanup.

Puig was removed on Saturday night and didn't start on Sunday with left hip soreness. He pinch hit in the ninth inning on Sunday with the bases loaded and two outs, down 4-3, but grounded out to end the game.

Kemp took batting practices and ran on the field at Chase Field before the game, but is not in the starting lineup. As of four hours before game time Kemp hasn't been activated from the disabled list.

Hanley Ramirez (back), Andre Ethier (ankle) and Carl Crawford (back) are all out of the lineup again for the Dodgers. Nick Buss, who started in right field for the Dodgers on Sunday, starts in left field in Monday's series opener.
