Even though I’d argue that his bat flips are not in mid-season form just yet, Yasiel Puig is looking as though he is ready to have a huge season for the Dodgers in 2015. Puig, who had a monstrous inaugural Spring Training for the Dodgers after they first signed him, has had another solid Spring outing so far for 2015 giving us a glimpse to what is to come this year, his third with the Dodgers.
Puig was briefly sidelined with illness in mid-March, but he was right back on the field the next day contributing to the team. Yasiel Puig has not only hit well this Spring, but he has also impressed with his strong arm and his aggressive all-out style of play in the outfield. With more maturity and perhaps a few more words of English, Yasiel Puig has become the Dodgers’ franchise player alongside Clayton Kershaw.
2015 could be Puig’s biggest year yet.
