MILWAUKEE -- Yasiel Puig bounced off the outfield fence at Miller Park on Wednesday night and was back in the lineup Thursday, but fellow Dodgers outfielder Joc Pederson was still unavailable after crashing into a wall, with a disabled-list stint still on the table.

"We'll make a decision as far as what we do with Joc and the roster in the next day or two," manager Dave Roberts said on Thursday.

MILWAUKEE -- Yasiel Puig bounced off the outfield fence at Miller Park on Wednesday night and was back in the lineup Thursday, but fellow Dodgers outfielder Joc Pederson was still unavailable after crashing into a wall, with a disabled-list stint still on the table.

Pederson slammed full speed into the fence Tuesday night while making a spectacular catch of Chris Carter's long drive during Los Angeles' 6-5 win.

X-rays were negative regarding broken bones. The club announced that Pederson had a bruise of the acromioclavicular joint. Pederson said he bruised the same (non-throwing) A/C joint (where the collarbone and scapula meet) diving for a ball in the Minors two years ago, but he returned in time for the Triple-A All-Star Game.

With Pederson unavailable and an eight-man bullpen, the Dodgers had only three available position players on the bench for Thursday's finale: Chris Taylor, A.J. Ellis and Scott Van Slyke.
