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.

Report: Dodgers' Puig could start in center if Pederson falters
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

It's "pretty clear" the Dodgers would like outfield prospect Joc Pederson to win the everyday center fielder job in 2015, the Los Angeles Times reports, adding that the backup plan if Pederson falters could be rolling with Yasiel Puig in center.

"I don’t expect anything to be handed to me," Pederson said last weekend during the team's fan fest. "It never has been in the past. I still have to grow as a baseball player."

Carl Crawford is expected to be locked in at left field regardless of the performance of Pederson, who would start in center with Puig in right if the prospect wins a spot on the 25-man roster in spring training. If the team decides Pederson needs more minor-league seasoning, Puig could be shifted to center field, with Andre Ethier moving into the starting lineup and playing right field.

Yasiel Puig: Cardinals, not Giants, are Dodgers' top rival
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

In Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig's two seasons in the majors, he has had to endure two postseason exits at the hands of the Cardinals. St. Louis beat Los Angeles in the NLCS (4-2) in 2013, and beat them in the NLDS (3-1) in 2014.

"I dream about them every day," Puig told Los Angeles reporters at a benefit luncheon last week, per FOX Sports Midwest. "If we can beat them, we can win the World Series. We have to pass through them. They're our principal rivals, not San Francisco, not anyone else."

Puig hasn't had great personal success against St. Louis in the postseason either. In 34 postseason at-bats against the Cardinals, he is batting .235 with 18 strikeouts.

"We can't let them beat us three straight times," Puig said. "No way. They're a good team and we all admire them. They have very good pitchers, very good players. If we beat them, we can win the World Series. We just have to get through them."

Florida businessman pleads guilty in smuggling case for Yasiel Puig
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Gilberto Suarez, a South Florida businessman who is accused of helping finance the smuggling of Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig, has changed his plea from not guilty to guilty, according to the Associated Press.

U.S. District Judge Robert Scola set a Tuesday plea change hearing for Suarez. If charged, it carries a 10-year maximum prison sentence for Suarez. 

He is alleged to be one of the financers who helped smuggle Puig from Cuba to Mexico in 2012 and was suppose to receive a cut of the seven-year, $42 million contract Puig signed. 

Puig hit .296 with 16 homeruns and 69 RBI in 2014.
