(CBS) Somehow, Dodgers star outfielder Yasiel Puig always finds himself in the middle of drama.

His latest act is arriving late for Los Angeles’ home game today against San Francisco, for which he’s been subsequently benched in favor of Matt Kemp. It sounds like Puig missed the team’s stretching session by at least 20 minutes.

After his late arrival, Puig had a talk with team executives and was scratched from the starting lineup, according to MLB.com.
