It doesn’t matter if it’s the 8th inning in a regular season game against the Giants or a meaningless spring training duel with the Mariners, Yasiel Puig brings energy.

Puig broke up a scoreless tie in Sunday’s game versus Seattle with a moonshot to left field. Puig hit the Mariners with the courtesy bat-flip without hesitation.

Puig said before spring training he wanted to start in L.A. or for another team. He has the inside track to starting right now, and his energy in an evaluation game is worth nothing.

Corey Seager is expected to resume activities by Tuesday
