Yasiel Puig has returned to the Dodgers starting lineup Friday.
Puig was hit by a pitch on the hand and was removed from last Saturday's game. He's making his first career start in CF Friday night, and if he performs well may be there to stay, as the team lacks any better options at the MLB level, though Joc Peterson is waiting to be called up at Triple-A, something that is expected to happen soon, especially if Matt Kemp is dealt. Puig should be fully recovered from his sore hand after several games off and is s=good to go Friday. ANALYST: Ben Diamond
Matt Cain is finally healthy and ready to be in the Giants rotation.
The three-time all-star is finally healthy. He hasn't been able to start more than 15 games in each of the last two seasons. If Cain can get back to the level he was pitching at during the 2012 season, the Giants will have a lethal rotation. Don't forget, they've won the World Series three straight even years. By our calculations after carrying the two -- it's an even year. Cain is a key compenent to the Giants success this year. Analysis: James Grande
