I love Yasiel Puig's game and the life he brings to this Dodger team but it would be foolish to not recognize some of the flaws in his game. Never have I seen a superstar with so much to learn, but such is life for a kid that popped on the scene a year ago with raw talent and virtually no minor league seasoning. He’s hitting .373 after 234 plate appearances and 55 games. He has shown off his five tools repeatedly and with all he has accomplished, a number of facets to his game can be identified that need improvement. In fact, if he were to heed to some of these suggestions and change a few parts of his game, he’ll even be better.
This piece is not intended to speak negatively of the Dodger rookie right fielder. Fact is that he might be the most amazing prospect to ever put on a Dodger uniform. I just point out these weaknesses in his game because as unbelievable as it seems, he can be even better than the .373 hitter that he is today. The only thing that may deter him from progress is injury. And if he heeds some of the suggestions noted here, he may be able to avoid them. It's an exciting time to be a Dodger fan knowing that Puig may be a Dodger for life.
