The hope is he will test out his leg Friday at Houston and play sometime during the weekend series against the Astros. Puig says he is feeling better after leaving Tuesday night's 5-4, 10-inning loss after reaching on an infield single in the eighth.

What I was trying to do is get on base," Puig said through a translator.
