UPDATE (1:44 PM): Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman released a statement Tuesday on the issue:

“We are aware of what Yasiel posted on social media last night and while we are disappointed in his and some of our other players’ judgment, this is a matter we will address internally.”


(AP) Yasiel Puig has found the party in the Pacific Coast League.

Days after a demotion to the minors, the unpredictable Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder posted videos to his Snapchat account Monday night of him partying with his new Triple-A teammates. The series of videos came after Oklahoma City’s 3-2 loss at the Iowa Cubs.

Puig began by posting a video of him shirtless in the team’s locker room, smiling and saying: “It’s so funny. We lose today, and everybody’s happy.”

Videos posted later showed Puig and his teammates dancing, singing and chanting, often using profanity.

A banner on one of the videos reads, “I Love this Team.”

Watch the videos below, but be aware there is some NSFW language:

Puig was optioned to Oklahoma City last week after the Dodgers could not find a taker for him before the non-waiver trade deadline. He went 2 for 4 in his first game with Oklahoma City on Sunday and was 0 for 3 on Monday.

A major league All-Star in 2014, the 25-year-old Puig has been physically limited this season and largely inconsistent when healthy, batting .260 with seven homers in 81 big league games.

The Cuban slugger signed a $42 million, seven-year contract in June 2012.
