Dodgers rookie sensation Yasiel Puig has made quite an impression in less than two weeks since getting called up to the big leagues. On the field, the outfielder has more or less done it all. He hit four home runs in his first five major-league games — including a two-homer performance in his second career game and a grand slam in his fourth game. He’s also showcased a laser right arm when his jaw-dropping throw from right field to third base gunned down a base runner during a game against the Braves last week. Puig is earning plenty of attention, even breaking Dodgers merchandise records along the way, as his legend continues to grow. And apparently, a few Los Angeles-area musicians are taking notice, too. Puig is the inspiration to the newest grindcore rock band, aptly named “Puig Destroyer” following his dominant debut in a Dodgers uniform. It originally began as a joke, Ian Miller, one of the band’s members, wrote, but has spawned into something greater. The group consists of Miller, Jon Howell and Mike Minnick as drum programmers as well as lead vocalist Riley Breckenridge, who described the new band as a “baseball-themed grindcore project.” What’s more, the band has already begun recording. It plans on releasing a five-track EP soon, which will include its first song, “One Man, Five Tools,” which was released for download on Thursday. No word on if Puig plans to use the 48-second track as a new walk-up song, but you can give it a listen below, courtesy of . Photo via Twitter/@portadasports
