TMZ Sports reports that thieves broke into Yasiel Puig‘s home in Los Angeles and made off with over $500,000 worth of watches and jewelry. Part of the haul included three Rolexes.

Puig is in Arizona for spring training now and a relative is housesitting for him. They were out of the house when the theft occurred.

Celebrity thefts are not a new phenomenon in Los Angeles and, as TMZ notes, there has been a spate of  jewel heists from stars lately, with Alanis Morissette, Derek Fisher and Cesar Millan all being victimized in 2017.

The Astros announced on Monday that the club claimed reliever Buddy Boshers off waivers from the Twins.

Boshers, 29, had been designated for assignment by the Twins last week. Across parts of three seasons, the lefty compiled a 4.59 ERA with a 78/25 K/BB ratio in 86 1/3 innings in the big leagues.

Boshers has handled left-handed hitters much better than right-handed hitters, holding them to a career .621 and .793 OPS, respectively. If he makes the 25-man roster out of spring training, the Astros may use him as a LOOGY — a left-handed one-out guy. As of right now, Tony Sipp is the only lefty in the ‘pen.
