I actually prefer Puig. You're OF will be thin once Cruz is suspended and Altuve is solid. I'd stick with Puig who will put up better #'s across the board, although I do agree that Pedroia is a safer option.

Peds puts up ok stats more name than bang if you ask me. Puig is more important to your team. Agreed with DC on this one.

I'm going to say go for it. You're lack of OF depth and bench depth offensively means that no matter what Markakis is either a starting OF for you or a UTIL player whether you keep Puig or not. I'd personally rather have Pedroia from here on out, so I'd role with Heyward, Myers, and Markakis as my OF and Freeman and Pedroia as my UTIL. Otherwise you standpat and have Heyward, Puig, and Myers at OF, but Freeman and Markakis at UTIL anyway.
