LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Dodgers have told outfielder Yasiel Puig the organization is ''very disappointed'' with his behavior in the wake of his second arrest this year for reckless driving.
The team issued a statement Sunday that said Puig's behavior ''is a very serious issue to us.'' The Dodgers said they would continue to educate the 23-year-old Cuban defector and strive to further develop his growth off the field.
Puig was arrested Saturday in Naples, Fla., after the Florida Highway Patrol clocked him going 110 mph in a 70-mph zone.
Authorities said Puig was arrested and charged with reckless driving and taken to the Collier County Jail for processing. Puig lives in the Miami area during the offseason.
