Yasiel Puig's Missile Home Run

Hey Everyone,

The Dodgers have a rare off-day today. There aren’t many during spring training. While the Dodgers are enjoying some relaxation, we can enjoy this video of Yasiel Puig‘s three-run home run yesterday during the Dodgers game against Cleveland. I know there is a lot of buzz right now surrounding Puig. Some people are even predicting him making the opening day roster and starting in left field until Carl Crawford is healthy enough to play. I don’t think we are there yet. I still think it’s doubtful the Dodgers place him somewhere where he won’t get regular playing time. We’ve got a long way to go. However there is nothing wrong with admiring his first Dodger home run, even if it is in spring training. Puig has looked poised beyond his years. He has a nice short compact powerful stroke, and a strong throwing arm. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves just yet. Check out his rocket over the left field fence from yesterday’s game. Enjoy! Try to keep your drooling under control.
