Opening Day is two months away, but baseball fans will have an opportunity to get their baseball fix a week prior to that — at least on PlayStation.
MLB 15: The Show will be released March 31, and it will feature a familiar face for Dodgers fans, as Yasiel Puig is the featured athlete on the cover of the game. Since 2006, MLB: The Show has featured some of the game’s best and most well-liked players, including David Ortiz, Miguel Cabrera and current Dodger, Adrian Gonzalez — although Gonzalez was selected as member of the Boston Red Sox in 2012.
Despite an up-and-down season for Puig, in which he was selected to his first All-Star Game but was also benched for Game 4 of the NLDS, his star continues to grow. Puig batted .296 with 16 home runs in 2014, and participated in the Home Run Derby, though he failed to hit a single home run.
Since his arrival to the Dodgers in 2013, the enigmatic right-fielder has been a fan favorite at Dodger Stadium, and just the opposite of that on the road. In just a few short years, he’s gone from being an obscure prospect whom the Dodgers gambled on to being on the cover of baseball’s most popular video game franchise.
