2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Either you believe in Puig or you don't. Both sides have valid cases. There's no denying his raw athletic ability, but it's also perfectly fair to question Puig's desire to get the most out of it. Last season was tumultuous for the Cuban native, beginning in the spring, when he avoided a suspension stemming from alleged domestic violence charges during a November 2015 bar fight. Puig was unable to get in a groove, perhaps a result of lingering left hamstring soreness that eventually resulted in a June DL stint. After returning, the struggles continued. That and a lack of hustle culminated in a minor league demotion. Puig responded well with an eye-popping slash line at Triple-A Oklahoma City, yet he was still placed on waivers. After being claimed and pulled back, Puig returned to the bigs when rosters expanded, hitting a modest .281 with four homers and 11 RBI. The good news for the believers is the price to own has dropped. The bad news is playing time isn't a sure thing. Invest at your own peril.

2016

Coming off a strong .296/.382/.480 first full season, expectations were high for Puig last year, but hamstring injuries limited the mercurial outfielder to just 282 at-bats and a .255/.322/.436 slash line. One of the more divisive players in the game at the tender age of 25, Puig's actions on and off the field have come into question, but his upside between the lines remains enormous. Unlike some Cuban sluggers, Puig has a decent eye at the plate (9.5% career BB%), he runs hard and has a cannon of an arm. His .192 career ISO is solid, but his raw talent seems to call for much more. He hasn't always been in the best shape, and while has a lot to prove in 2016, it may be worth gambling on his considerable upside. He should be the team's Opening Day right fielder, and with an offseason dedicating to getting himself in tip-top shape, Puig could eventually provide first-round fantasy value.

2015

After bursting onto the scene as a rookie in 2013, expectations were sky high for Puig in his second big league campaign. Somehow, there was an air of disappointment in what turned out to be a 5.1-fWAR season. Even with a variety of ailments that included thumb, head, hip, hand, and hamstring injuries, Puig logged 148 games last season, but it's fair to wonder if his reduced power was as much the function of playing at less than full health as it was the result of the league figuring out how to pitch to him. Overall, Puig showed improved plate discipline (10.5% BB%, 19.4% K%), but a late-September slump carried over to the postseason and Puig was placed on the bench for the Dodgers' season-ending loss to the Cardinals after he struck out eight times over 12 at-bats to begin the NLDS. Just 24, Puig's ceiling remains very high, but he still shows the occasional lack of polish despite regular flashes of brilliance that suggest he'll be an MVP candidate in the near future.

2014

Puig electrified the team and the city from Day 1 of his big league debut June 3, knocking two hits in his debut and two home runs in Game 2. He had his ups and downs as pitchers started adapting to his free-swinging ways, but Puig also adapted himself, taking more pitches as the season wore on. The end result was a .319/.391/.534 slash line that included 19 homers and 11 stolen bases in 382 at-bats. He's certainly a work-in-progress, but coming off a .925 OPS rookie season, the sky appears to be the limit.

2013

The Dodgers swooped in with $42 million just before Major League Baseball put a cap on international spending and grabbed Puig, the latest Cuban buzz-worthy young outfielder. He appeared in 23 games in the Dodgers' minor league system and delivered a 1.076 OPS with five homers and eight steals in just 82 at-bats. It's possible, with the team's projected outfield all signed through at least 2017, that the team will need to make a trade (Andre Ethier?) to free up a spot for Puig, but that can be decided later. For 2013, expect Puig to open up in Double-A.
