It’s been a tough week for Los Angeles Dodgers’ Yasiel Puig. From erroneous reports to being sent to the minor leagues it seems Puig has heard it all from the critics. Puig’s name was also thrown in multiple trade rumors prior to the MLB trade deadline, although, a trade was never made a reality.
Puig took to Instagram on Thursday and posted this picture in Spanish.

Translation of the post goes as follows:
Do not judge the fallen, best help him to get up, why tomorrow it could be you.
Puig has had a rough year dealing with low stats and hamstring issues. Although Puig didn’t specify that his post was addressed to critics, it is safe to assume so. On Wednesday he posted the following video on his Twitter page after news broke that he did not accompany the team to Colorado.
