Dodgers sit frustrated Puig vs Padres' Cashner
SAN DIEGO (AP) Yasiel Puig of the Los Angeles Dodgers is out of the starting lineup because manager Don Mattingly says the outfielder seems frustrated.
Says Mattingly: ''I wouldn't call it rest today. I think it's probably more a frustration day. That's what we've seen of him lately.''
Mattingly says Puig's frustration, coupled with his 1-for-11 lifetime numbers against San Diego's Andrew Cashner, led to the decision for Friday night's game.
Puig is in an 0-for-16 slump.
