Yasiel Puig smacks seventh home

Yasiel Puig had a nice day at the plate in the Dodgers' 9-6 loss against the Rockies on Sunday, batting 2-for-5 with a home run and two runs scored.

Fantasy Impact

Puig is still batting just .250/.316/.434 for the season, but the fact that his plate discipline and power metrics (9.2% walk rate, 19.7% strikeout rate, .184 isolated power) remain in line with expectations suggests better days ahead. Puig looks like a decent bet to surpass his career high of 19 home runs.
