Updates from Thursday, Jan. 9

Mark Saxon of ESPN Los Angeles has the latest on Yasiel Puig after being arrested for reckless driving:

Los Angeles Dodgers president Stan Kasten said he spoke with Puig on Thursday, and the 23-year-old outfielder told him he has hired a cousin to drive him around for the time being.

"I give him credit for taking that step if nothing else," Kasten said during a radio appearance on ESPNLA 710.


"I sat him down myself when that happened and made it clear what we expect of him," Kasten said. "I said then that, even if he thinks he can get away with it because he's in Chattanooga, if you ever get to the big leagues, nothing -- nothing -- is going to escape attention. He brought that up to me today."
