LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles Dodgers All-Star right fielder Yasiel Puig has been ejected after being called out on strikes in the third inning of a game with the San Diego Padres.

Puig was tossed Saturday night by home plate umpire David Rackley following back-to-back strike calls against Ian Kennedy. The first pitch appeared to be down the middle and just above the knees. The second seemed to catch the inside corner.

Puig stood in the batter's box, hands on hips, and continued barking at Rackley before being thrown out of the game.

Masai Ujiri, Toronto's team president and general manager, says "We were very pleased with what Patrick brought to us both on the court and in the locker room last season."
