Yasiel Puig, who is just 7-for-51 (.137) over his last 14 games, was not in the Dodgers' starting lineup Saturday against the Padres. Enrique Hernandez was in right field for the first time this season. "I texted (Puig) last night and just said I thought he needed a day just to clear his mind," manager Dave Roberts said.

Tigers OF absolutely crushed a three-run shot to the second deck in left field in the first inning in what seems to be another good sign for the Tigers that his bat is coming around. What's been clicking for him over the past three games? Upton said he's seeing the ball longer than he was before, letting it get to the zone and making the decisions from there. "That always helps," he said.
