Latest Update Yasiel Puig went 2-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in the Dodgers loss to the Rockies on Tuesday. Tue Sep, 16, 11:58 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.
Tuesday night marked Puig's first home run since July 31. Hopefully this is the spark plug he needs before the playoffs begin.Analyst: David Kerr
It was previously though that Puig was sitting as a result of his slump, but it looks like his absence is related to an illness. It doesn't sound serious and he should be back in the lineup tomorrow. In his place, Joc Pederson will hit seventh and play center field. Analyst: Ben Diamond
Puig will sit out for the second time in four games, as he has been very cold since early August. Hopefully the increased time off will help him get back into the groove. Joc Pederson will hit seventh in the order and man center field. Analyst: Ben Diamond
Puig has struggled recently, so this is just a routine day off for the Cuban sensation. Joc Pederson is getting the start in center field.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
