Pladis hopes to unlock sales among younger adults, it added.“We know that over a third of UK households (37.5%) already buy Jacob’s Mini Cheddars, but we’ve spotted an opportunity to welcome even more people into the brand with a totally new and innovative concept,” said Owen.“With our latest launch, we’re giving shoppers a bold, cheesy taste sensation which they can enjoy across even more eating occasions – particularly those increasingly popular evening sharing moments,” he added.
ST. LOUIS >> The Dodgers have ordered a second x-ray on Yasiel Puig’s swollen left hand, an injury that forced the all-star right fielder to miss Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium.Puig was hit by a pitch in the third inning of the Dodgers’ 4-2 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday. A fluoroscan x-ray of Puig’s left hand taken after the game at Busch Stadium was negative, meaning it revealed no broken bones. However, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said that Puig won’t participate in any baseball activities until the second x-ray — scheduled for today in Pittsburgh — comes back clean.“I think they just want to be cautious,” Mattingly said. “We think he’ll be OK.” All-stars split on JapanIn June, MLB and the MLB Players’ Association jointly announced that a team of “all-stars and other accomplished major leaguers” would play a five-game touring series against Japanese all-stars in Japan this November.The Dodgers sent four players to the All-Star Game in Minnesota last week. Two, pitchers Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke, said they have no intention of playing in the Japan series.“I don’t think it has any chance of benefitting the Dodgers as a baseball team,” Greinke said. “I’ve never done USA stuff after the season. If it’s going to take away from team stuff, I think pitching more innings has a better chance of hurting than helping.”Greinke expects that most pitchers would decline the invitation for the same reason, regardless of how large a bonus they might receive for participating in the series.“Some pitchers would,” he said, “but I would assume if he threw 200 innings, he wouldn’t want to do it.”Two other Dodgers participated in this year’s all-star game: second baseman Dee Gordon and Puig. Puig declined comment. Gordon offered an emphatic “heck yeah” when asked if he would go to Japan.“Either that or winter ball,” he said.Greinke, Kershaw and Gordon said they haven’t received formal invitations to participate in the series.Etc.Dodgers infielder Alex Guerrero collected one hit, a double, in his first rehab game with Single-A Rancho Cucamonga. … Utility player Chone Figgins got a day off from his rehab assignment at Triple-A Albuquerque. He’ll play nine innings at shortstop today, Mattingly said. … Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford and Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday were chosen for induction into the Arizona Fall League’s Hall of Fame. The 2014 class will be inducted in November. Crawford played for the Maryvale Saguaros in 2001. … Former Dodgers pitcher and current broadcaster Orel Hershiser was inducted into the Albuquerque Baseball Hall of Fame on Saturday night in Albuquerque. Hershiser played for the Triple-A Albuquerque Dukes in 1982 and 1983. … Hershiser was joined by former Dodgers outfielder Von Joshua and current New York Mets manager Terry Collins, who managed Albuquerque from 1984-88. Puig stayed in Saturday’s game after absorbing an 84-mph changeup from Joe Kelly. He batted once more, popping out, and played five innings in the field. The hand was visibly swollen after the game.“He’s still sore and I think a little bit swollen,” Mattingly said Sunday. “Obviously we’re going to be cautious at this point.”Coincidentally, Kelly hit Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez with a pitch in last year’s National League Championship Series, breaking a rib.The Dodgers begin a three-game series against the Pirates today.Andre Ethier started in right field for the first time since May 6, with Scott Van Slyke in center field and Matt Kemp in left against Cardinals right-hander Carlos Martinez.
