White Sox reportedly interested in right fielder Yasiel Puig

According to a report from MLB Network Insider Mark Feinsand, the White Sox are still looking for outfield help even after the addition of right fielder Nomar Mazara.

....

Feinsand specifically mentions Cuban slugger Yasiel Puig as the top target of the White Sox. Last season Puig played a total of 149 games with the Cincinnati Reds and Cleveland Indians, batting .267 with a .785 OPS and 24 home runs. The 24 homers were the second-best mark of Puig’s career.

This would probably deeply displease a recently-retired announcer of theirs- which may be a good-enough reason to do it.

So Puig in CF? Jimenez in LF? Interesting.

Abreu and Moncada at the corners, Anderson at SS, Grandal catching. Mendick @ 2nd? Maybe they can carry him.

If their pitching holds up they could win 90 games.

I think Madrigal at 2b by mid season. Same with Robert in CF.

Scrolling down two stories on the linked article, one will see a refutation of the Puig rumor.

It certainly makes sense not to rely too heavily on Mazara but Puig in CF doesn't sound like a great idea. And with Abreu, EE and Eloy around, he doesn't complement a LF/DH/1B mix. In line with #3, I wouldn't be surprised if this is more of an old rumor, that they had interest before signing EE. (I'm assuming Puig is not interested in a role consisting of 40 starts against LHP and standard 4th OF the other 120 games a year.)
