    Los Angeles Dodgers rookie star Yasiel Puig was removed from Wednesday's game against the Chicago Cubs for what appeared to be disciplinary reasons.

    The Dodgers took Puig out in favor of utility man Skip Schumaker in the fifth inning. The team announced there was no injury to Puig, saying the move was made at the "manager's discretion."

    In the first inning, Puig went into second base standing up on Carl Crawford's grounder rather than attempting to break up the double play, which Chicago turned. The next batter was Hanley Ramirez, who launched a solo home run.

    Puig also had a couple of snatch catches in right field in the fourth inning, but that is not unusual for him.
