Yasiel Puig is continuing to hit home runs in what looks to be a year of redemption for himself.
With a previous career-high of 19 home runs that he reached in 2013, Puig has already hit 16 in 2017 and the season is only into the first week of July.
Friday night against the Kansas City Royals, Yasiel Puig took a beautifully placed low and away slider from Jason Hammel and somehow managed to put it halfway up the pavilion.

Puig has settled in nicely since he was put in the 7th and 8th spots in the batting order. Comfort is the key to his success.
