Yasiel Puig’s Tardiness Shouldn’t be Cause for Los Angeles Dodgers’ Concern Yet


Just when it seemed like things just couldn’t get any better for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Yasiel Puig proved he’s not completely perfect. It’s not exactly trouble in paradise, but Puig showed up half an our late for L.A.’s game against the Miami Marlins on Tuesday and was fined by the team.

Puig also didn’t play on Tuesday night for the Dodgers, who beat the Marlins to improve to 72-53 on the season. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Puig was already out of the lineup for “baseball reasons” before he showed up late, so his tardiness didn’t affect his playing time. Take that with a grain of salt.
