Puig is expected to be fully active again on Friday, which should breathe a sigh of relief for the Dodgers. The 23-year-old Cuban outfielder batted .319 with 19 home runs and 11 stolen bases in 104 games last year for Los Angeles and is expected to be a key contributor again this year.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Dodgers are 13/2 favorites to win the 2014 World Series. The team with the next-best odds is the Tigers, who are 9/1, while the Yankees and Cardinals are both 10/1, respectively. The defending World Series champion Red Sox are 12/1 to repeat.

The Dodgers are also -200 money line favorites to win the National League West again this year, while the Giants have the next-best odds at +275. The Diamondbacks, Rockies and Padres are all +1200, respectively, to win the division.

Not surprisingly, the Dodgers are 3/1 favorites to win the NL pennant as well. The Cardinals are 19/4, the Nationals are 11/2, and the Giants are 15/2. The Braves are 9/1 to win the NL pennant in 2014, while the Reds are 10/1 and the Pirates are 12/1.
