Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig began his second rehab assignment this season with the Class-A Rancho Cucamonga Quakes on Thursday night, going 2-for-4 with a double against the Lancaster JetHawks (Astros).

Puig batted second and played seven innings in right field.

He doubled to center field and scored in the first inning, then grounded out to third base in the second inning, struck out swinging in the fourth, then singled in the sixth.

Puig last played for the Dodgers on April 24, sidelined for six weeks with a strained left hamstring. Manager Don Mattingly said on Wednesday that Puig could be ready for a return to the Dodgers as soon as next week.

Rancho Cucamonga continues its weekend series in Lancaster on Friday night at 6:30 p.m. PT.
