Report: Dodgers make Yasiel Puig available in trade

Remember the Summer of Puig in 2013? When Cuban outfielder Yasiel Puig stormed into Major League Baseball as a 22-year-old and posted a WAR of 5.0 in just 104 games while galvanizing the entire Los Angeles Dodgers franchise? Yeah, that seems like a long time ago, as the Dodgers are now reportedly ready to move on from the former All-Star. Bob Nightengale reports that the Dodgers...

Want Bruce For Mets

Of all the Mets’ trade rumors, I like the one involving Jay Bruce best. I am not thrilled with the prospects of trading for Yoenis Cespedes or Yasiel Puig, although I doubt the Dodgers will move the latter. BRUCE: Want him for Mets. (AP) Cespedes is a headache waiting to happen, and Puig is already a man-child. Bruce is having somewhat of a bounce back season, but his numbers...

Los Angeles Dodgers Trade Rumors: Yasiel Puig edition

Rosenthal: Dodgers would be very particular about return value in trading Puig

I heard a trade rumor this week, heard it more than once. The concept sounded plausible enough to check, so I did. As it turned out, the move was never discussed. I'm presenting it now only as a way of explaining how the Dodgers view right fielder Yasiel Puig.

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...
