The Los Angeles Dodgers have sent outfielder Yasiel Puig and shortstop Dee Gordon to the minors. The Dodgers moved Puig to Double-A Chattanooga on Tuesday. The 22-year-old Cuban leads major leaguers with a .526 batting average this spring. Puig signed a seven-year contract for $42 million on June 29.

He was considered a possibility to take over while Hanley Ramirez is out for up to eight weeks with a thumb injury. But Dodgers manager Don Mattingly decided to move Luis Cruz from third base to shortstop until Ramirez returns.
