Free-agent outfielder Yasiel Puig may still be on the hunt for a contract, but that’s not going to stop him from keeping up with his fans. While most of the world sits in quarantine unable to do much, Puig is making sure that fans can keep up with him and stay in shape in the process.
Puig, who is known very well for being in great shape, took to Instagram to encourage fans to keep active. He posted a challenge to have fans workout alongside him a few times a week when he goes live.

For Yasiel Puig, it’s been a long and winding road through the big leagues. He lit the baseball world on fire when he came up for the Dodgers in 2013. That year, he was the spark that ignited an incredible streak of success for Los Angeles, where he played until he was traded in 2018.
While the Giants were reported to be interested in signing Puig, nothing has come of that as of yet. Of course, the situation got a little bit more complicated when baseball had to shut everything down due to COVID-19. Regardless, someone as talented and entertaining as Puig should have no problem finding a home.
