Los Angeles Dodgers OF Matt Kemp sought out OF Yasiel Puig and exchanged words with him in the dugout Monday, Sept. 15. Kemp may have been angry that Puig didn't go first-to-third on a single to right field by 1B Adrian Gonzalez. It sounded like it wasn't the first time the Dodgers' tempers have flared at one another. Several sources have described the clubhouse atmosphere as "dysfunctional."

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig, who has seen his average drop from .323 on Aug. 3 to .293, was 0-for-2 with a walk Sunday, Sept. 7, after being dropped to seventh in the batting order for the first time in his two-year career. "Who do you want the extra at-bat going to? Right now, that's not necessarily Yasiel," manager Don Mattingly said. "Yas is probably hitting where he should be hitting right now. I think it's a place where you're not putting extra pressure on him."
