According to the Naples Daily News, Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig was arrested Saturday morning in Florida on a charge of reckless driving.

Puig's 2013 Mercedes was clocked speeding through the Alligator Alley section of I-75 at 110 mph in a 70 mph zone. As you recall, Puig had a similar incident in Tennessee in April, though those charges were eventually dismissed. While the 23-year-old Cuban defector is immensely talented, he needs to learn how to handle himself off the field or he could risk derailing his promising career.

According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Yankees are telling teams that they are close to trading Aroldis Chapman.

They're also telling teams that they intend to keep Andrew Miller. Chapman has been his usual dominant self this season with New York, boasting a 2.01 ERA, 0.89 WHIP, and 44/8 K/BB ratio in 31 1/3 innings. The 28-year-old impending free agent is averaging 100 mph with his fastball. There is believed to be interest from the Cubs, Nationals, and Giants.

Evan Gattis homered twice and drove in four runs as the Astros beat the Angels 7-2 on Saturday.

Gattis terrorized Angels starter Jered Weaver, blasting a three-run shot in the second inning before tacking on a solo dinger in the fourth. The homers were his 14th and 15th of the year, giving him 40 RBI. That power has kept him fantasy relevant, but El Oso Blanco is hitting just .224/.289/.451 on the year.

Kirk Nieuwenhuis went 3-for-3 with two home runs and four RBI as the Brewers won on Saturday.

He hit a solo home run in the fourth inning and followed that up with a three-run bomb to put the game out of reach in the eighth inning. This will likely go down as the best game of Nieuwenhuis' season and possibly his career. He is now batting .207 with five home runs and seven steals.

Yordano Ventura suffered a right rib contusion on Saturday night against the Rangers.

Ventura was struck by a comebacker off the bat of Adrian Beltre, and the ball had an exit velocity of 109 mph. But thankfully X-rays turned up negative and he should be fine for his next turn in the Kansas City rotation. The right-hander yielded three earned runs on three hits and four walks over five innings against Texas.

Ryan Zimmerman (rib cage) went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer Saturday with High-A Potomac.

That makes him 5-for-12 with five RBI on his three-game minor league rehab assignment. Out since July 7 because of a left rib cage strain, Zimmerman is expected to return to the Nationals' active roster on Tuesday.

Mac Williamson smacked a go-ahead RBI single in the top of the 12th inning Saturday as the Giants defeated the Yankees 2-1 in New York.

That's the first win since the All-Star break for San Francisco. Williamson provided all of the Giants' offense Saturday, slugging a solo homer in the fifth inning off Ivan Nova and then playing the role of hero with a base hit to center field in the 12th. That all made up for a bad fielding error in the fourth that gave the Yankees their only run of the game. Williamson is slashing .247/.337/.506 with six home runs and 15 RBI in 81 at-bats.

Tommy Stokke of FanRag Sports reports Chris Sale was sent home from U.S. Cellular Field on Saturday after cutting up throwback jerseys that he did not want to wear.

This story takes another fascinating turn. Via FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal: "Sale asked that they not wear (throwbacks) on his day because they are uncomfortable. Things escalated when they wouldn't relent." Sale went after the jerseys with a knife during pregame batting practice, and then apparently exchanged some words with members of the White Sox front office for putting merchandise sales ahead of winning. He could be traded before the August 1 deadline, though that wouldn't really have anything to do with this odd incident. Matt Albers is starting in Sale's place on Saturday night against the Tigers.

Mark Melancon picked up save No. 29 in the Pirates' 7-4 defeat of the Phillies on Saturday.

Melancon racked up two strikeouts in a perfect ninth inning. He is sporting a fantastic 1.55 ERA, 0.98 WHIP, and 38/9 K/BB ratio in 40 2/3 innings this season for the Pirates, who are trying to stay within striking distance of a Wild Card spot. They might consider trading their impending free agent closer if things go south.

According to MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan, the Rangers do not want to include Nomar Mazara in a trade for White Sox ace Chris Sale.

Reports suggest the White Sox are asking for Mazara on top of Jurickson Profar and Joey Gallo. That would be a massive haul for Chicago, and one they're probably not going to get. Mazara, 21, has batted .281/.334/.413 with 11 home runs, 37 RBI, and 38 runs scored over his first 88 major league games while playing very good defense in the outfield. Sale was scratched from his scheduled start Saturday against the Tigers following a clubhouse incident with members of the White Sox front office. It probably had something to do with all the trade rumors swirling around him.

Josh Reddick was scratched from the A's lineup on Saturday due to back soreness.

It sounds like a day-to-day type of thing. Reddick has posted a cool .295/.374/.433 batting line in 61 games this season and will be a big trade chip for the Athletics ahead of the August 1 non-waiver deadline. There is known to be interest from the Cubs.

Diamondbacks pitching prospect Braden Shipley will be called up to make his major league debut Monday in Milwaukee.

Shipley will be filling in for Zack Greinke, who remains sidelined with an oblique injury. The former first-round draft pick (15th overall in 2013) has registered a 3.70 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, and 77/22 K/BB ratio in 119 1/3 innings this season at Triple-A Reno. It's not clear whether he'll get another turn after Monday.
