Manager Dave Roberts told reporters before Friday's game that Puig, who entered as a reserve on Thursday but played only one defensive out against the Nationals, wouldn't likely start until Sunday in St. Louis at the earliest. Before Saturday's game, it sounds like even that is a remote possibility.

Puig did appear in Friday night's marathon, popping out in the infield in the 13th inning.
Andrew Toles gets the call in right field for the Dodgers on Saturday, his fifth start in 11 games since joining the club on July 8. The leff-hander has started three games in center field and this is his second start in right field.
Toles is 6-for-19 (.313) with a double so far in nine games in his major league career, with two walks and a .381 on-base percentage to date. He has stolen one base in his only attempt.
Toles appeared in Friday's game as well, with a pinch-hit single in the eighth inning.
The only real change in the lineup on Saturday is Toles in right field in place of Scott Van Slyke, who started Friday, and the flip with Joc Pederson, who batted seventh on Friday night but bats eighth on Saturday.
