Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig now has new representation, CBSSports.com's Jon Heyman reports. The 23-year-old Cuban defector has now signed on with Adam Katz and Andy Mota of the Wasserman Media Group. Previously, Puig had been a client of Jaime Torres.

Puig is coming off a rookie 2013 season in which he batted .319/.391/.534 (160 OPS+) with 19 homers in 104 games. 

Puig originally signed a seven-year, $42-million contract with the Dodgers in June of 2012. However, he's eligible to opt into arbitration-eligibility after he accrues three years of major-league service time. He'll make $2 million for the upcoming season.
