Yasiel Puig Newsbeat

Monday, April 25, 2016

Yasiel Puig crashed a high school prom after game in Colorado

Only to be thrown out by that stuffy Dean! I’LL GET YOU PUIG!

Los Angeles Dodgers star Yasiel Puig had a little time to kill on Saturday night after Kenta Maeda and company made short work of the Colorado Rockies. So he decided he would surprise some Denver area high school students by crashing their prom party.

True story.

Puig shocked the students from Chatfield High School in Littleton, Colo.— which is a suburb of Denver — a little before midnight. He even posed for pictures with the students to commemorate the occasion, which will someday validate some prom stories that no one else would believe otherwise.

Dodgers Manager Dave Roberts is a people person, but is he a Yasiel Puig person? - LA Times

So Don Mattingly wasn’t genuine?

“We are highly confident that he will play a significant role in us shaping a culture of sustained success here,” Friedman said.

Roberts’ predecessor, Don Mattingly, was also considered a people person. Mattingly was never able to get through to Puig.

Under Mattingly’s watch, Puig’s work habits were widely questioned. Some teammates felt he was disrespectful toward them. His attention strayed not only in meetings, but also in games.

The behavior was tolerated when Puig was hitting.
....
Adrian Gonzalez, who has become a mentor to Puig, thinks Roberts will have a chance to reach the temperamental outfielder.

“From my experience, Puig responds well to genuine people, when he understands there is no agenda and people really just care for him,” Gonzalez said. “I think that’s why he’s responded well to me. . . . I think Puig will respond to him because he’ll see that Dave’s being completely genuine and wants what’s best for him.”

MLB to investigate Dodgers’ Yasiel Puig for role in reported fight - LA Times

Yasiel Puig will be investigated by the commissioner’s office under Major League Baseball’s new domestic violence policy after an incident at a Miami bar Wednesday night.

The Dodgers’ right fielder was involved in a fight with a bouncer, according to Major Delrish Moss of the Miami Police Department.

Puig sustained injuries to his face, including a swollen left eye, Moss said, and the bouncer suffered a “busted lip” and other minor facial bruises.

The bouncer told police Puig had sucker-punched him. Puig said the bouncer was overly aggressive. Neither said they were interested in pressing charges, and Moss said the police considered the case closed.

The Dodgers declined to comment, as did Puig’s agent.
