Latest Update Puig not in the Dodgers starting lineup Tuesday Tue Oct, 07, 01:52 PM
Displays great raw power, thanks to a solid build and good athleticism. Also has a great throwing arm, which makes him a natural fit for right field.
Flaws: : Has trouble with breaking pitches and off-speed stuff, so he needs to work on plate discipline and patience in order to maximize potential.
This is a bold move by Don Mattingly to bench Puig for an elimination game. Puig has struck out eight of his last nine at bats and has batted under .200 over the past two months of the season. Andre Ethier will be inserted into the lineup for the Dodgers in Game 4. Analyst: Drew Phelps
Puig hit .333 with four RBI for the Dodgers in 10 playoff games last season and finished 2014 hitting .296 with 16 home runs and 69 RBI. The Dodgers will need solid production from their stars such as Puig if they hope to have success against the defending National League Champions. Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Puig has three home runs in his last nine games after going the previous 37 games without a homer. He has 16 home runs on the season with seven stolen bases and a .296 batting average.Analyst: Steve Pimental
The Dodgers can breathe a sigh of relief as their star outfielder appears to be fine. He has been hot recently, batting .321 over his last seven games. Puig will look to finish the regular season strong as the Dodgers march towards the playoffs.Analyst: David Kerr
