Yasiel Puig had a bad night. His Dodgers lost Game 7 of the World Series AND some jackwagons broke into his house.

That’s the report from CBS Los Angeles, which says that Puig’s home was burglarized while his team was losing 5-1 to the Astros and while, you have to figure, half the city was watching that and not out going for walks and things. As the for break-in: the a window of his home was smashed, and some items were taken. TMZ reports that the burglar alarm went off, so the jackwagons managed to grab only a few items of jewelry before fleeing the scene.

This is not the first time this year Puig has been the victim of a robbery. Back in March, while Puig was away for Spring Training, thieves took over a half million dollars worth of jewelry from his house. It was a different house, but apparently his real estate upgrade didn’t include a guard house out front.

Bright side: if they hit him again next summer, there won’t be a World Series ring there to steal.

Tyler Glasnow scheduled to rejoin Rays’ rotation

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Tyler Glasnow is scheduled to rejoin the rotation at Cleveland after missing nearly 14 months because of Tommy John surgery.

The Rays’ Opening Day starter last year hasn’t pitched this season after undergoing the procedure on Aug. 4, 2021.

“I think we’re pretty confident he’ll be starting for us,” Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash said before the game with Toronto. “This is the first time he’s thrown pain-free in quite some time, so he’s encouraged by it.”

The 6-foot-8 right-hander went 5-2 with a 2.66 ERA in 14 starts last year and is a key addition as the Rays near a wild-card spot.

“Compared to the past, like, three years it feels way better as far as postday and the week leading into starts and stuff,” Glasnow said. “It’s good to have an UCL, you know.”

Cash said Glasnow will throw around 45 pitches in his initial outing, which should allow him to go two or three innings.

“Two innings of Glasnow is still a huge plus for our team,” Cash said. “Like to get three innings. If we do, great. If we don’t, that’s fine, too.”

Glasnow allowed one run, one hit, four walks and had 14 strikeouts over seven innings in four starts with Triple-A Durham.

“I’m really excited,” Glasnow said. “I’m approaching it like normal, staying on routine. Feels normal.”

Glasnow signed a two-year, $30.35 million contract that will delay the start of his free agency by one year last month. He’s making $5.1 million this year and will get $5.35 million next season and $25 million in 2024, which is the first year he would have been eligible for free agency.
