Puig was able to pinch-hit and play four innings in the outfield. The rookie singled in his first at-bat in the fifth and scored the Dodgers' only run in a 3-1 loss. Puig ran well on the bases, unlike Friday when he had a noticeable limp.
Puig believes the time off will allow him to recover and return to the lineup for a three-game series against the Nationals coming out of the break.
"Hopefully when we're in Washington I'll be able to start," Puig said.
Crawford entered as a defensive replacement in left field in the top of the ninth, and popped out to shortstop in his lone at-bat.
"Carl seems like he's getting better," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. "But he's probably not quite right. I feel like he's going to be ready to roll after the break."
Ellis fouled a ball off his knee in an eighth inning at-bat on Saturday night and was removed from the game.
