The Dodgers optioned spring training sensation Yasiel Puig to Double-A Chattanooga on Tuesday. This was the correct move. Puig made it a much tougher decision than originally expected with his fantastic play this spring. He'll join many top Dodger prospects in Tennessee like -- at least for a little while. This also means Carl Crawford, despite my skepticism, should be ready for opening day. As exciting as it would be for Puig to be in the majors, he needs a little more seasoning in the minors. After Alex Castellanos , who could (should) benefit from the transaction, Puig should be first on the minor-league depth chart. It's a move that makes all the sense in the world, but it's still a touch disappointing. Don't worry, though, Puig's time will be here sooner than we expect. Dee Gordon was also optioned to the minors, as he'll begin the 2013 campaign with the Isotopes at Triple-A Albuquerque. Photo credit: Dustin Nosler, Feelin' Kinda Blue
