In an interview on ESPN’s SportsCenter, Yasiel Puig discussed what he’s learned in his second season as a big leaguer and discussed the Los Angeles Dodgers’ goals for the season.
In addition, Puig talked about manager Don Mattingly and gave him credit for teaching the team. The Dodger right fielder said he and his teammates are trying to meet Mattingly’s expectations. Puig also addressed his tardiness as something that needs to be improved, as he was benched for arriving late to the stadium for the Dodgers’ home opener this season.
Puig’s sophomore season has been nothing short of productive. He is batting .309 with 11 home runs and 46 RBIs and currently sits in third place among NL outfielders in All-Star voting.
