Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register was on the scene in Miami …

The Dodgers will run him through a range of tests before announcing an official diagnosis. Puig was 1-for-4 with a walk and a run scored in the 5-4 loss and he’s batting .309/.397/.500 on the season.

Last night Jason Kipnis led the Indians to victory over the Chicago White Sox via a walkoff grand slam. Such a beast is a pretty special, but lately they’ve been surprisingly common. Indeed, Kipnis’ walkoff slam was the third one in the space of a week.

Francisco Mejia of the Padres hit a walkoff salami on Sunday afternoon to lead San Diego over the Texas Rangers. Sal Perez of the Royals did the deed on Friday against the Twins.

As Anthony Castrovince of MLB.com tweeted this morning, there were only two walkoff grand slams in the entire 2016 season. Having three in a week is pretty darn cool, eh?
