    • The Giants are among the teams expected to be in the mix to sign Puig when MLB lifts its freeze on transactions Friday, Jim Bowden of The Athletic reports. Rumors previously surfaced in April that the outfielder-needy Giants were interested in bringing Puig aboard, so it's no surprise the team intends to reach out to the 29-year-old now that MLB training camps are scheduled to reopen next week. Puig may not be in line for a multi-year contract after struggling to find a team willing to meet his asking price in free agency over the winter, but MLB's decision to implement a universal designated hitter for at least 2020 should help his case for landing a lucrative one-year deal. Between stops with the Reds and Indians in 2019, Puig slashed .267/.327/.458 with 24 home runs and 19 stolen bases.

    • Puig says he has contract offers on the table but they aren't in his price range, Jorge Ebro of el Nuevo Herald reports. He said in Spanish that he knows he "will have a team when (the pandemic) is over." Puig, who is from Cuba, also noted that he asked for a little more money from the Marlins because of the added pressure he would have faced playing in front of Cuban fans. He did not address the notion of playing in a foreign league.

    • Puig is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Nationals, Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reports. Puig will sit for the second straight contest after the Indians were eliminated from playoff contention Friday. The 28-year-old will enter free agency this offseason after posting a .267/.327/.458 slash line with 24 home runs, 84 RBI and 19 stolen bases in 149 games between the Reds and Indians.

    • Puig went 3-for-3 with two doubles, a walk and a pair of runs Tuesday in the Indians' 11-0 win over the White Sox. Puig hasn't homered since Aug. 16, but he's at least been making contact at a prolific clip in the final month of the season. Through 20 games in September, Puig is batting .392 and reaching base at .471 clip. Puig should remain locked into the cleanup spot for the final five games of the season with the Indians battling the Athletics and Rays for one of the American League's two wild-card spots.
