[September 01, 2016]  Aug 31 (The Sports Xchange) - Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig will be staying with the organization after being claimed off revocable trade waivers by an unknown team, according to reports Wednesday.


The unknown team that claimed Puig on Tuesday was more interested in blocking him from going to another team than in trading for him, a league source told ESPN's Jim Bowden.
