Analysis: Healthy Yasiel Puig could be a steal
by Chris Towers | Fantasy Writer

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.

Dodgers' Yasiel Puig: Being investigated by commissioner's office
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yasiel Puig will be investigated by the commissioner's office under MLB's new domestic violence policy after an incident at a Miami bar Wednesday night, the Los Angeles Times' Dylan Hernandez reports.

Nobody is pressing charges after Puig apparently got into a fist fight with a bouncer, so police consider the case closed. However, MLB still has the power to dole out punishment under the new policy. The domestic violence element stems from a TMZ report that bar employees got involved in the situation after Puig had a physical altercation with his sister. MLB has the power to hand out any punishment they deem necessary in these cases, so in theory Puig is in danger of being suspended for games in 2016.

Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig will start Game 4 of NLDS
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yasiel Puig will start Game 4 of the NLDS Tuesday against the Mets.

Puig has been held out of the starting lineup in each of the first three games of the NLDS, but with lefty Steven Matz set to take the mound for the Mets, Puig will be inserted into the lineup and hit sixth in the order, with Justin Ruggiano and Enrique Hernandez set to play left field and center field respectively.

Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig makes NLDS roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Yasiel Puig made the Los Angeles Dodgers ' 25-man roster for the NLDS, the Los Angeles Times reports.

His spot on the postseason roster 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 for the Division Series. 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 OF Yasiel Puig says he will be on NLDS roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig said Wednesday that he will be on the Dodgers' NLDS roster, ESPN Los Angeles reports.

While the Dodgers haven't formally submitted their roster for the Division Series, the players of been informed of their status, and Puig told the media he's made the cut. Scott Van Slyke 's slow progress from a wrist injury solidified Puig's spot, as the Dodgers need a right-handed bat to use off the bench against right-handers and start against lefties. Puig returned for the final two games of the regular season after missing more than a month following another hamstring setback.
