Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig slugs fourth home run of spring
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig went 2 for 3 with a two-run home run in his team's 9-5 win over the Padres Wednesday.

Puig got out to a relatively slow start this spring but has heated up in recent days, smacking three home runs in his last four games. He's 9 for 34 with four home runs and 10 RBI in 13 Cactus League games.

Dodgers' Mattingly not worried about Yasiel Puig's spring numbers
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig is batting just .174 (4 for 23) through his first nine spring games. Despite the slow start, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly is not worried about the Cuban slugger, even after he had a .780 OPS in the second half last season and struggled in the playoffs in 2014.

"Not really," Mattingly said, per the Los Angeles Times. "His spring was a little rough last year. I'm not really concerned about his average or anything like that. He looks fine. He's hit some balls decent."

Businessman convicted in Puig's smuggling case gets month in prison
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

U.S. District Judge Robert Scola announced Friday that Gilberto Suarez has been sentenced to a month in prison for his role in the smuggling of Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig out of Cuba, according to the Associated Press. The South Florida businessman also received five months of house arrest.

Scola gave Suarez less than the one-year maximum partly because his smuggling role was limited to getting Puig to the Mexico-Texas border in 2012. 

Suarez was one of the Miami-based financiers of the venture in which Puig was taken by boat from Cuba to Mexico. The financiers were to receive a portion of Puig's contract. He eventually signed a seven-year, $42 million deal with the Dodgers.

Court documents showed Suarez received $2.5 million from Puig's contract. However, Suarez has agreed to forfeit a house, a condominium and a Mercedes-Benz.

Dodgers' McGwire: Yasiel Puig 'an MVP candidate from day one'
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Dodgers hitting coach Mark McGwire believes outfielder Yasiel Puig is "an MVP candidate from day one," the Los Angeles Times reports.

McGwire also added that consistency is the only obstacle for Puig to win multiple MVP awards.

"If we can put a full season together and if that lull toward the end of the season is not there — he has a big September, big playoffs — there's no question he's going to have several MVPs," McGwire said.

The outfielder faded a bit in the final two months of the 2014 season, entering August with a .319/.406/.552 line.

"He's had such great first halves, first three-quarters of the season, and things have tailed off toward the end of the season," McGwire added. "We have to work on something like that."

McGwire expressed uncertainty about where Puig would hit in the lineup, saying, "I like him at the top of the lineup to set the tone, and I like him in a RBI situation."

Puig completed his first full major-league season last year after making his big-league debut in June of the previous season. He hit .296/.382/.480 with 16 home runs, 69 RBI and 11 stolen bases in 558 at-bats in 2014.
