Dodgers | Yasiel Puig benched
Tue, 20 Aug 2013 16:14:08 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig was benched and fined by the team Tuesday, Aug. 20, for violating a team rule by showing up late to the game against the Miami Marlins, according to manager Don Mattingly. Mattingly had a closed-door meeting with Puig before the game Tuesday. Puig said he was stuck in traffic. "I'm satisfied with the answer, but it doesn't make it better," Mattingly said. "You've just got to leave earlier. You get caught in traffic or whatever, it's easy to say that but it's kind of like, 'OK, that's fine but you're still late.'" Puig is hitting .171 with 10 strikeouts and one RBI in his last nine games.
