Yasiel Puig could remain in center field regularly


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2014) Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig could become a regular starter in center field, MLB.com reports, allowing Matt Kemp to play right field with Carl Crawford in left field.

"I think it's the best combination for the guys we have now," manager Don Mattingly said Saturday. "There's a little more stability in center instead of a platoon if this works out. Andre [Ethier] can play center, right and left. Carl's in left and Scott [Van Slyke] can play the corners or give Adrian [Gonzalez] a day at first. It's kind of the best right now."

Puig made his first start of the season in center field Friday after playing a few innings at the position Wednesday, and he was back in center Saturday. He has hit .315/.402/.543 with 12 home runs, 54 RBI and seven stolen bases in 352 at-bats.


Yasiel Puig rips out three triples in win over Giants


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2014) Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig came up with a historical performance at the plate in his first game back from injury against the Giants in San Francisco.

Puig tripled in the first, doubled in the third, tripled in a run in the fifth and tripled again in the sixth. He finished 4 for 5 with two runs scored and two RBI in an 8-1 victory.

Puig’s three triples are the most by a Dodger since Jimmy Sheckard in 1901 for Brooklyn. He also became the first player in team history to record at least two triples and a double in a game since Sandy Amoros in 1956. His 11 total bases were the most by any Dodger without ever hitting a home run.

Puig owns a .315/.402/.543 slash line with 12 homers and 54 RBI in 352 at-bats this season.

Yoenis Cespedes tops Todd Frazier to win HR Derby


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/15/2014) Athletics outfielder Yoenis Cespedes and Reds third baseman Todd Frazier survived tiebreaking swing-offs in the first round before eventually meeting in the finals of Monday's Home Run Derby, where Cespedes picked up his second straight title with a 9-1 knockout of Frazier.

Cespedes' three first-round homers earned him a swingoff with Athletics teammate Josh Donaldson, and after Donaldson managed just one home run three swings, the outfielder delivered homers in each of his first two swings to advance. He defeated Orioles outfielder Adam Jones 9-3 in the second round after Jones managed four first-round shots, then took down Jose Bautista, who had a competition-best 10 homers in the first round, by a score of 7-4 in the AL Final. Twins home-field competitor Brian Dozier hit just two home runs in the first round, failing to advance.

Frazier played the role of underdog throughout, hitting just two home runs as the first batter in the competition but managing to slide into a swing-off with Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau after Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig failed to hit a single home run before recording seven outs. Frazier went first in the swing-off and managed one home run in three swings but advanced after Morneau went 0 for 3. The Reds third baseman took down Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki 6-2 after Tulowitzki hit four first-round homers. Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton earned a bye after hitting six massive blasts in the first round, but he bowed out to Frazier 1-0 after a long break.

Cespedes joined Ken Griffey as the only players to win back-to-back Home Run Derby titles. He'll likely enter the 2015 competition as the favorite to make it three in a row.

Yasiel Puig joins Home Run Derby


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig will take part in the 2014 Home Run Derby, according to the Orange County Register

Puig will join Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton. Tulowitzki, the NL captain, still needs to choose one more player to complete his squad.

Though he's played in just over a season of games at the major-league level, Puig has displayed elite pop in the outfield. He's hit 31 career home runs, and has a .526 slugging percentage. Given Puig's propensity for flair, the Home Run Derby seems like the ideal place for him to show off his skills. 

Over 322 at-bats, Puig is hitting .307/.393/.516 this year.
