Yasiel Puig goes hitless in four at-bats

Yasiel Puig batted 0-for-4 as the Dodgers were unable to generate much offense in their 1-0 victory over the White Sox on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Puig is batting an uninspiring .248/.323/.463 on the year and continues to bat at the bottom of the Dodgers' order. He's quite replaceable in most fantasy formats.

Yasiel Puig with a pair of home runs in win

Yasiel Puig finished 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs and four RBIs in Los Angeles' 6-4 win over Miami on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Puig sent a ball into orbit in the fifth inning to put the Dodgers up 2-1 before connecting for another go-ahead shot, this time, off A.J. Ramos with two outs in the ninth inning for the biggest hit of the game and the closest thing to a walk-off without actually being one. Puig has bounced back nicely this season now with 18 home runs (one shy of career high) and 47 RBIs although his line is a meager .252/.327/.469. Still, it's hard to complain about the production if you're in a deep league as he's on pace for 30+ home runs.

Yasiel Puig sparks game-winning rally

Yasiel Puig batted 1-for-4 against the Diamondbacks on Thursday, singling to lead off the bottom of the ninth inning with the Dodgers trailing 4-1 and eventually scoring on a bases-loaded walk to Logan Forsythe. The Dodgers won three runs later on a bases-loaded single by Chris Taylor.

Fantasy Impact

Puig had been quiet in the game's first eight innings but came through when it mattered the most. He is now batting .249/.325/.448 on the year.

Yasiel Puig goes hitless in four at-bats

Yasiel Puig batted 0-for-4 against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

This brings his season batting line to .250/.327/.452. Puig's game this year looks more suited to fantasy counting stats than in years past (15 home runs and 9 steals through 309 plate appearances to date), but his opportunities for runs and RBIs are relatively limited batting near the bottom of the order. That plus his sagging batting average makes him a low-end starting outfielder in most fantasy leagues.

Yasiel Puig limited to one hit, one walk in blowout win

Yasiel Puig batted 1-for-4 and drew a walk in the Dodgers' 10-4 win over the Padres on Friday. He was unable to contribute in the runs or RBI columns despite the team's offensive explosion.

Fantasy Impact

Puig has a respectable .251/.330/.460 batting line on the season with 15 home runs and 9 steals -- on pace for career highs in both categories.
