Yasiel Puig hits two-run homer Sunday

Yasiel Puig went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run, a double, and two runs scored in the Reds' 11-3 win over the Rangers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Puig has now homered in back-to-back games, and raised his average to .231 with this performance. He feasted on Texas pitching, going 7-for-12 with two homers and four RBI in this series. Hopefully, this is a sign of a turnaround for Puig.

Yasiel Puig clobbers two-run bomb Saturday

Yasiel Puig went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in the Reds' 4-3 loss to the Rangers on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Puig is slowly rebuilding his numbers after a dreadful April, and now has 12 home runs along with a .223/.264/.403 triple slash. Clearly, he has a long way to go, but owners should stick with Puig for the upside at this point.

Yasiel Puig has three-hit day Friday

Yasiel Puig went 3-for-4 with a double in the Reds' 7-1 loss to the Rangers on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Puig is riding a modest three-game hit streak and now has a .222 AVG on the year. That average may seem low, but it's a decent improvement considering Puig was straddling the Mendoza line coming into June. Hopefully, this is the sign of a turnaround for the streaky outfielder.

Yasiel Puig doubles and steals a base Thursday

Yasiel Puig went 1-for-4 with a double and a stolen base in the Reds' 3-1 loss to the Cardinals on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Puig has an extra-base hit in back-to-back games, and is currently on pace for a career-high in steals. Those are about the only bright spots for the 28-year-old outfielder, who is still hitting .210 with a .645 OPS on June 6. We know he's capable of more, which is why Puig should still be targeted as a buy-low, even with how poorly his first two months have gone.

Yasiel Puig strikes out three times Saturday

Yasiel Puig went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in the Reds' 5-2 loss to the Nationals on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Puig finished his May off strong, but started June with a dud in this one. The frustrating yet talented outfielder now has a .214/.263/.383 triple slash on the year. As tough as it is to stomach those numbers, Puig is worth holding onto for the high upside.
