Yasiel Puig has been on an exciting tear as of late batting .316 with four home runs and eight RBI’s in the past 2 weeks. Puig has also been a standout right fielder, arguably holding down the position better than anyone in the league.

Puig remains listed as day-to-day with knee and hamstring soreness. Until he is back and healthy it seems that Trayce Thompson will man the spot.
