He's worrying me. When was the last time he put some good wood on a pitch? The best I've seen in like 2 weeks is a hard ground ball through the 5-6 hole.

Dude's just a youngster MLB pitchers are going to find holes now he needs to adjust.

yeah seriously, did you really expect him to hit .400 or close to it with such a despicable K/BB ratio?? an Avg adjustment was inevitable... lets just hope he adjusts to the pitching's adjustments properly.

No, I just expect him to average out. He either has games where he has a BABIP of 1000% or he strikes out 4 times. I mean look at this past series. 0-9 with 5 k's. I don't think he got the ball out of the infield. I'm not asking for .400, I'm talking about completely different things. He hasn't has an extra base hit in 2 weeks. If he was making long outs or getting unlucky some of the time I would understand. I don't think he's got unlucky once this season. And FWIW I am a HUGE puig fan.

As a guy with 170 career PA, it wouldn't shock me to see him go a month without an XBH, or see him put the next 3 pitches he sees into the bleachers. There is no base line for expectation for Puig. It's 170 PA. I think his torrid start has unfortunately led some to unbearably high, unrealistic, and ultimately what will be very disappointing expectations. As others have said; if he continues to walk 4.1% of the time and strike out 24.1% of the time, that doesn't instill a ton of confidence in long-term success. As even others have said beyond that, through 170 PA, it's almost entirely right now about how the league pitching is adjusting to what they have seen of him, and how he will adjust to those adjustments. Every team has a 'book' on him now, and he will be pitched differently, and his success will depend on if he can successfully adjust his approach to be successful to how he is being pitched to now versus how he was pitched to when he first came up.

As some of you know I'm a huge Puig believer, but you can't expect him to keep a .400 avg all year- so he will cool off. I think his hip is still bugging him and is contributing to the slow down.

That being said, i think he's the real deal and once he gets better will start raking again.

He is accumulating the points again! Apparently his first out last night was scorched and caught by a leaping first baseman.

He scorched everything that he made contact with last night. He's kind of good.

I don't know if this has been asked/said. what type of hitter will be in the near future over a full season? does he project for say 20 HR? 30 HR?
I look at fangraphs.com and see right now on the season he has 25.2 FB%. that seems awfully low for hitting HR.
what type of player comparison is there to Puig?

I just did a google search "Yasiel Puig" comparison. the 2nd link worries me. comparable to, Jeff Francoeur? ouch. they mention because of his poor plate discipline.
