The Los Angeles Dodgers placed Puig on waivers on Sunday.

Puig who has struggled at the plate this season, was batting just .260, with seven home runs and 34 RBI’s in 81 games. July 31st was his last game in the majors as the Dodgers sent him to their Triple-A affiliate.

In 18 games with Oklahoma City, he was batting .369, with four home runs and 12 RBIs.

According to MLB.com:

Waiver claim order is based on the reverse order of standings in the player’s league. Therefore, every NL team would have a chance to claim league before any American League team, beginning with the Atlanta Braves, who have the worst record in MLB.
