Los Angeles Teams

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

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."

Rams GM Les Snead, on extending Tavon Austin: "We look at him as a unique offensive weapon who can move chains and score touchdowns as a receiver, a runner and as a returner. ... Because he's a threat to score from anywhere on the field, he can help open up spaces for our other skill players when on the field."
