Dodgers' manager Dave Roberts said he removed Yasiel Puig from Tuesday's game because he didn't run out of the box on a single in the sixth inning.

At least we know Puig wasn't injured. Puig accepted responsibility for the lack of hustle, and said Roberts did the right thing, but it is fair to wonder if this is the year Puig finally wears out his welcome and is traded.

Coco Crisp went 2-for-5 with a home run, a double, three RBI and one run scored against the Mariners on Tuesday.

Crisp has an eight-game hit streak right now, helping push his batting average to .248. He’s an OF4 or OF5 in most formats, but his ability to steal bases helps him out immensely. As long as he stays atop the Oakland lineup, his fantasy value is at its highest. He’s 4-for-19 with two home runs against tomorrow’s starter Hisashi Iwakuma.

Robinson Cano went 2-for-4 with a home run, a double, three RBI and one run scored on Tuesday against the Athletics.

Cano was in quite the power outage until his 13th long ball of the season tonight. Cano is one of the premiere options at his position, thanks to his ability to hit for average and power. He is going to slot in the heart of the Seattle order every night, which keeps his fantasy value sky high. He has four hits in his last three games and he should be started in all formats.
