YASIEL PUIG RUMORS & GOSSIP

Yasiel Puig stars in fashion campaign

Dodgers: Puig 'a few weeks' from returning, but good news still on way

While the Dodgers' high-dollar stars get most of the headlines, it is their depth -- both on the bench and on the mound -- that has been the biggest reason they currently own the second-best record in baseball. And now comes word that help is on the way . . . though not all the help they had hoped. Speaking to reporters before Wednesday night's game, a 5-4 loss at home to the Miami...

Yasiel Puig appeared to be working his way back from a hamstring injury but has apparently suffered a setback. During a minor league rehab game, the Dodgers outfielder pulled up while running to first base in the fifth inning, grabbing the same left hamstring that landed him on the disabled list.

Are the Los Angeles Dodgers the deepest team in baseball?

In the offseason, the Los Angeles Dodgers lost Matt Kemp, Dee Gordon and Hanley Ramirez. So far in 2015, those three are a combined 38-for-114 (.333 average) and have each come up big for their respective teams. For a team to lose one of those players in an offseason would be tough to overcome. All three in the same offseason? It would take a huge team effort to make up for those...

Puig is cutting back on bat flips

Giants analyst calls Yasiel Puig ‘young and dumb’

Giants broadcaster Mike Krukow has never been afraid to say something controversial. Last May, he speculated that the best explanation for Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki hitting .571 at Coors Field was stealing signs. Months later, Krukow accused the Cubs of deliberately preventing its grounds crew from rolling out the tarp during a downpour to nab a rain-shortened 2-0 win...

Cubs interested in Yasiel Puig?

It would appear the hot stove is already burning. After calling up Javier Baez and Jorge Soler late in the season and with super prospect Kris Bryant waiting in the wings, the Chicago Cubs have all of a sudden become the sexy team to bet on to be playing in October the next couple of years. And I’d have to imagine this would help the cause immensely. Are the Dodgers shopping Puig...
