Yasiel Puig: Expects to sign after pandemic
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Indians' Yasiel Puig: On bench again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Indians' Yasiel Puig: Day off Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cleveland will rest several starters after getting eliminated from playoff contention Friday. Franmil Reyes makes a rare start in right field in Puig's place.

Indians' Yasiel Puig: Generates three hits in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Indians' Yasiel Puig: Provides walk-off single
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puig went 4-for-5 with a single and RBI on Wednesday against the Tigers.

Puig reached base on four singles, with the last accounting for the game-winning run. While he hasn't connected for a home run since Aug. 16, Puig has at least one hit in 13 of his last 15 appearances. He'll look to continue showcasing his ability to get on base and generate more power to close the season while improving on his .265/.324/.457 line across 581 plate appearances for the campaign.

Indians' Yasiel Puig: Out of Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puig is not in Thursday's lineup against the White Sox.

He is hitting .200 with zero home runs and one steal in 40 at-bats over his last 10 games. Greg Allen will start in right field and bat ninth.

August 29, 2019 11:16 AM
Indians' Yasiel Puig: Slumping at plate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puig has gone 5-for-34 with three runs, two RBI and a 5:9 BB:K over his last nine games.

Puig provided a pair of doubles in Tuesday's win over the Tigers but has otherwise been slumping at the plate for the past week and a half following a hot start to his tenure with the Tribe. Despite his slump, Puig will continue to stick in the cleanup spot for the Indians in Thursday's series finale.

August 18, 2019 12:32 PM
Indians' Yasiel Puig: Running hot since return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puig went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, an RBI and a run scored Saturday in the Indians' 6-5 loss to the Yankees.

Puig hasn't missed a beat since returning from a three-game suspension Thursday, going 5-for-12 with two extra-base hits, four RBI and three runs in the first three contests of the series in New York. He'll be back in the lineup for the finale, batting out of the cleanup spot and occupying right field.

August 15, 2019 03:48 PM
Indians' Yasiel Puig: Returns from suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puig (suspension) was reinstated Thursday and will start against the Yankees.

The 28-year-old returns to the starting nine after serving a three-game suspension for his role in a fight while playing for the Reds. Puig will start in right field, batting fourth.

August 12, 2019 03:32 PM
Indians' Yasiel Puig: Set to miss series vs. Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puig will begin serving his three-game suspension Monday.

Puig was suspended three games at the beginning of August for his role in Cincinnati's benches-clearing incident with the Pirates. The outfielder was able to continue playing while appealing the suspension, but he'll miss Cleveland's upcoming series with the Red Sox after dropping his appeal. Look for Puig to rejoin the lineup for Thursday's series opener against the Yankees. Tyler Naquin and Greg Allen should cover the outfield corners in the meantime.

Indians' Yasiel Puig: First homer with Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puig went 3-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Twins.

The long ball was his 23rd of the year but Puig's first since the trade from the Reds. The 28-year-old is now slashing a dazzling .378/.439/.595 through his first 10 games with Cleveland.

August 10, 2019 07:52 AM
Indians' Yasiel Puig: Three hits in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puig went 3-for-5 with a run scored and an RBI in Friday's 6-2 win over the Twins.

The slugger is still looking for his first homer in a Cleveland uniform, but otherwise Puig has delivered a needed jolt of adrenaline to the team's offense. In nine games since coming over from the Reds, the 28-year-old is slashing .333/.405/.455 with two steals, four RBI and four runs.

Indians' Yasiel Puig: Swipes base in Cleveland debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puig went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk and a stolen base in Thursday's loss to the Astros.

In his first game as an American Leaguer, Puig laced a double off Gerrit Cole in the fourth inning but was later thrown out trying to score from third base on a flyball out. He also walked and swiped second base in the seventh to notch his 15th steal of the season. Puig figures to get plenty of opportunities to ignite the offense with his new club, though he'll almost certainly miss some time in the near future pending his appeal of a three-game suspension meted out earlier this week.

Indians' Yasiel Puig: Appealing three-game suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puig was suspended three games for his role in Tuesday's bench-clearing incident with the Pirates, Jared Diamond of The Wall Street Journal reports.

Puig is appealing the suspension, so he'll be eligible to play in the meantime. The 28-year-old is debuting for the Indians on Thursday, starting in left field and hitting cleanup against Gerrit Cole and the Astros.

August 1, 2019 02:40 PM
Indians' Yasiel Puig: Debuting for Indians
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puig is starting in left field and hitting cleanup Thursday against the Astros.

Puig, who was acquired from the Reds on Tuesday as part of a three-team trade, will slide right into the heart of the order in his first game with the Indians. In 100 games with the Reds prior to being traded away, the outfielder slashed .252/.302/.475 with 11 home runs and 14 stolen bases.

July 31, 2019 03:20 PM
Indians' Yasiel Puig: Not in lineup yet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puig won't start Wednesday against Houston, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.

The distance between Puig's old home in Cincinnati and his new one in Cleveland isn't far, but he's evidently not ready to go right away after being traded Tuesday. Expect him to be an everyday player in the Indians' outfield once he gets settled. Tyler Naquin starts in right field on this occasion.

July 31, 2019 02:12 PM
Indians' Yasiel Puig: Sent to Indians in Bauer deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puig was traded from the Reds to the Indians in a three-team deal that also involves the Padres, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. He was also ejected from Tuesday's game against the Pirates.

Puig certainly had an eventful evening, as news of the trade was reported shortly before the brawl in Cincinnati that led to multiple ejections. Trevor Bauer is the headliner of the deal and will be heading to the Reds, while Franmil Reyes and Logan Allen will join Puig with the Indians from the Padres. Puig has a .278/.333/.526 slash line with 18 homers since May 1 and provides an immediate boost to Cleveland's outfield, though he's likely to face a suspension due to his role in Tuesday's brawl.

July 31, 2019 02:12 PM
Reds' Yasiel Puig: Ends RBI drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puig went 0-for-3 with a walk, an RBI and a run in Monday's 11-6 win over the Pirates.

Puig plated the run on a bases-loaded walk in the second inning, ending a seven-game stretch with no RBI. The outfielder's recent skid at the plate shouldn't limit any interest other clubs may have in his services leading up to Wednesday's trade deadline, and the 49-55 Reds could be amendable to dealing Puig in light of their recent swoon, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. He'll at least play one more with Cincinnati, as Puig will start in right field and bat cleanup Tuesday, per C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic.

July 16, 2019 09:28 AM
Reds' Yasiel Puig: Launches 22nd homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puig went 2-for-5 with a solo homer in Monday's 6-3 win over the Cubs.

Puig has five homers in July, giving him 22 on the year. He's quickly approaching his career high of 28 set in 2017. The 28-year-old outfielder has raised his OPS from .659 to .817 since the start of June.

July 15, 2019 02:12 PM
Reds' Yasiel Puig: Rejoins starting nine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Puig (knee) will start in right field and hit cleanup Monday against the Cubs.

The Reds held Puig out of the lineup for Sunday's loss to the Rockies with a sore knee but he was able to enter the contest as a pinch hitter, suggesting the team was never too concerned about the injury. His return to the starting nine a day later supports that notion, so fantasy managers shouldn't have any reservations of keeping Puig active for the Reds' seven-game week. Puig has been a five-category standout over the past month, slashing .388/.436/.824 with 10 home runs, four steals, 22 RBI and 19 runs in a 24-game stretch.
