      Analysis: Healthy Yasiel Puig could be a steal

      If you want to get in on the ground floor on the next Bryce Harper-esque breakout season, taking Yasiel Puig might be your best bet. Puig might rub some people the wrong way, and he is coming off a disastrous season where a litany of injuries limited him to a .255/.322/.436 line and just 11 homers and 38 RBI in 79 games. However, with an average draft position of 97th overall at FantasyPros.com, he has a chance to be the steal of your draft this season. If, at 25, Puig just gets back to his pre-2015 levels of play -- he hit .305/.386/.502 and averaged 20.8 homers, 13 steals and 94 runs per 150 games between 2013 and 2014 -- he'll be a steal in the eighth round. However, he if he can put the contact skills he showed in his first two seasons together with the increased flyball tendencies of last season, there's room for even more growth in his game. While many think Puig has been figured out, betting on an uber-talented player in his prime could pay huge dividends for you.

His spot wasn't necessarily secure at the end of the regular season, but Scott Van Slyke's slow progress from a wrist injury cemented Puig's status. The Mets are trotting out three straight right-handers to start the series, so expect Puig to be limited to pinch-hit/bench duty until Game 4.

      Dodgers' Yasiel Puig collects hit in return from DL on Saturday

      Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig made his return from the DL on Saturday, going 1 for 3 in a 2-1 win over San Diego. Puig has been out more than a month with a hamstring injury, so it was crucial for the Dodgers to get him back before the postseason. The star outfielder has not lived up to his draft-day price tag this season, but he can make an impact for LA when it matters most. With the depth the Dodgers have, it seems very possible that Puig will only play against lefties for the remainder of the season.
