Dodgers recalled Yasiel Puig from Double-A Chattanooga.


As pointed out in a previous recommendation on Puig, he has great bat speed, power, and athleticism, but has trouble with off-speed pitches that may show up even more at the next level. He will likely strike out a bunch, but has 20/15 potential depending how much the Dodgers have faith in letting him loose on the base paths. Puig is worth in add in Mixed Leagues for the power and speed potential alone.

It's really hard and unpredictable to scout and foresee how free swingers will fare in the majors. People seemed sure that yoenis cespedes was gonna be a .230-.240 hitter last year. People were saying the same about vlad Guerrero when he came in the league.

Also, many a free swinger has been forced to change their approach because they got beat up by major league pitching.

These are just the type of players that have a very large range of outcomes. I just hope he is so athletic and freaky that he scares pitchers and mashes anything close to the plate.

I own Crawdaddy in my H@H $$ league and shockingly outbid my fellow league mates and got Puig. For $15 of FAAB. I guess they were all asleep. Anyway, I will need to play Puig and fear the strikeouts. Praying for an LA mash up of thunder and lightning2

The fun thing about him is that, being in la, it's gonna be fernandomania/manny wood all over again if he gets cookin right off the bat.
