Dodgers: Predicting the Outfield Come Playoff Time
Puig, about this time last year, was wondering if he’d ever play for the Dodgers again. This year, he is having his most complete season as he approaches 30 homers to go along with first-class defense in right field. He’s matured, focused and even becoming clutch again. Turner Ward’s cheeks better watch out.
What a trade the Dodgers pulled off last season. After sending former top prospect Zach Lee to Seattle for Taylor, the club figured they were receiving a decent bench player.
What they ended with was one of the more valuable players in all of baseball. As everyone proclaimed Taylor was nothing more than a temporarily hot bat that was bound to cool off soon, the homers, four-hit games and high caliber defensive versatility continued.
