For those who thought the blown call on Yasiel Puig's perfect throw from right to get Bryce Harper at third was the worst it could get for the phenom... there is news.

A man who served seven years in a Cuban prison is saying he was only sentenced because of lies Puig told to the government. Because the complainant, Miguel Angel Corbacho Daudinot, claims he was tortured while imprisoned, Puig is still under the jurisdiction of the Torture Victim Protection Act of 1991, despite his accuser being in Cuba.

Corbacho Daudinot calls Puig and his mother "informants" to the Cuban government, and seeks $12 million in return, according to his lawyer.
