It looks like Yasiel Puig is making the most out of his time in the minors. He seems to be seeing the ball much better as he had 2 hits and 3 RBIS in his AAA debut. But not only is Puig finding success on the field, he also seems to be enjoying spending time with his new teammates.
On Monday night, Puig posted on his Snapchat videos of himself and his teammates partying in Des Moines. Check out the videos below!

According to Dave Roberts, Puig was sent down to OKC on a mission to become a better teammate and regain his confidence on the field. I think he and Dave Roberts might have different ideas of what becoming a better teammate entails.
"We had a good conversation, and he understands. He wants to be a better teammate." – Roberts on Puig

Puig’s Snapchat shenanigans didn’t go unnoticed as Andrew Friedman released a statement this afternoon in regards to his post.

It appears that Puig has embraced the concept of becoming a better teammate and he is loving his new team. But, as Puig continues having fun with his new teammates, hopefully he can remain focused on the reason he was sent down to OKC in the first place. We’re hopeful Puig will continue to find success on the field and amongst his new teammates from this point on so he can rejoin the team in Los Angeles soon.
