|Yasiel Puig sits due to back soreness |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(8/10/14) Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said he had planned to give outfielder Yasiel Puig a day off because Puig has "looked tired" recently, according to The Orange County Register. The opportunity finally arrived Sunday after Puig complained of a sore back.
|Puigmania took the country by storm last summer and was one of the lasting memories of the 2013 season. Yasiel Puig's rise to stardom began in spring training when he was obliterating pitching in the Cactus League. Puig opened the year in the minors, but he was up in the majors by early June and it didn't take long for the Cuban outfielder to make an immediate impact. He belted two homers in his second MLB game and was off to the races. Puig posted off-the-chart numbers, batting .443 with a .745 slugging percentage in his first 27 MLB games. Of course his numbers had to move closer to the norm over time, but Puig still finished with a .319 average, .391 on-base percentage, .534 slugging percentage and .925 OPS in 104 games. He had two triples, 19 home runs, 21 doubles, 42 RBI and 66 runs. Puig had the same kind of impact fellow Cuban outfielder Yoenis Cespedes had as a rookie for Oakland in 2012. While Cespedes still posted good numbers in 2013, he did regress a bit, batting .240 and slugging .442 after batting .292 and slugging .505 as a rookie. We can only hope Puig doesn't follow a similar decline, and he might not since he arrived to the States far younger in his career than Cespedes. Puig will likely be off draft boards by the third or fourth round in most Fantasy formats. Given his upside, it's easy to see why.
