Last August, the Dodgers benched their young superstar-in-the-making Yasiel Puig after he showed up to a game against the Marlins late. But apparently, he didn't learn his lesson after it happened. Because he's landed in Don Mattingly's doghouse again for showing up late for a game.
Earlier today, Puig showed up late for batting practice prior to today's Dodgers game against the Giants. And as a result, the Dodgers scratched him from their lineup and will go with Matt Kemp in the outfield instead of Puig. There's a chance Puig could potentially pinch-hit at some point during the game. But if you're going to the ballpark solely to see Puig today, we wouldn't bank on it.
When is this guy going to learn?
