WASHINGTON (AP) — Los Angeles Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig is back in the lineup three days after crashing into a wall during a game, but Matt Kemp is not starting.

Puig is listed as batting fifth for the Dodgers against the Washington Nationals on Wednesday.

He sat out games at Washington on Monday and Tuesday. He rammed his head, left arm and lower left leg against the fence as he tried to track down a double in the ninth inning of Los Angeles' loss at Miami on Sunday.

Manager Don Mattingly says he has not received any medical reports of a problem with Kemp, but the outfielder "seemed a little tired" during the Dodgers' 8-3 victory over Washington on Tuesday.
