2019 Fantasy Outlook
Puig may never realize the potential teased when he burst onto the scene in 2013, but if the past two seasons are an indication, his skills have stabilized to the point where we can bank on him being a plus contributor, especially in power. From a skills perspective, 2018 mirrored 2017, albeit with 126 fewer PA. Puig missed almost two weeks early with an ankle contusion, then nearly three weeks midseason with an oblique strain. His historical reverse splits were more extreme than normal (.921 vs. RHP, .628 vs. LHP). He hasn't actually accrued ample plate appearances to own the splits, but it certainly appears safe to say he hits RHP better than LHP. Following an offseason trade to Cincinnati, Puig has been reunited with hitting coach Turner Ward and now has a clear path to a true everyday role in 2019, but he should realistically be drafted for his floor as opposed to the perceived "sky is the limit" ceiling he had when he first came over from Cuba.
