After injury his hamstring a few weeks ago, Yasiel Puig has had a pinch hit appearance versus the Cubs a few days later and then was shut down to help him recover.
Last night, Puig played in a rehab assignment for the RC Quakes and hit a solo homerun to help the Quakes extend their winning streak to six games. Puig ended the night with two at bats, a walk and the home run.
“I feel better right now,” he said. “I need to run more on the bases and in the outfield, but I feel fine right now.” – Yasiel Puig, MILB.com
Puig will continue his rehab assignment tonight for the Quakes.
Here’s some great reactions from fans and media tweeting in the action:
