Puig BB-to-K update

Since I wrote this piece on Aug. 2, Los Angeles Dodgers wunderkind Yasiel Puig has struck out eight times in eight games. Same old story

He has also walked eight times in said span.

Do you know how many games it took Puig to record his first eight walks? Forty-three.

Forty-three!!!!! That’s one every five-and-a-half-or-so games.

(He has also been intentionally walked four times in the last three games alone — Joe Maddon must respect the kid, yeah? So if we’re getting technical, he has 12 walks to eight strikeouts in the past eight games. The plate discipline is here, folks. Plain and simple.)
