Rams WR Pharoh Cooper has a shoulder injury and will miss "a few weeks," Jeff Fisher said. Will miss at least the opener, it seems.

Seager proves looks can deceive

Corey Seager, 22, has played well beyond his years this season. Seager's .322 average is good for third among qualified NL hitters, and he has 23 home runs this season. No wonder he's the favorite for NL Rookie of the Year. Baby-faced big leaguers

Here is what Yasiel Puig just told me about being put on waivers by the Dodgers: "It didn't surprise me. It's common for all teams to put players on [revocable] waivers. I'm just here waiting to see what the future holds. I'm here in Oklahoma giving my best and preparing to have an opportunity, whether that is with another team or to stay with the Dodgers. I have to wait the pertinent time with the waivers and then wait to see what decision [the Dodgers] make. I'm here to play baseball. That's part of the business of baseball. I came from Cuba to the US to play baseball."
