About 30 minutes later came news of the fine, from beat writer Ken Gurnick of MLB.com:

Puig is not in the Dodgers’ starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Marlins, but that was announced before the late arrival and has more to do with Puig’s recent struggles at the plate than anything else.

The 22-year-old Cuban is batting .171/.231/.257 with 10 strikeouts over his last 39 plate appearances.
