Yasiel Puig Focusing On Baseball Despite Recent Threats

Puig

Yasiel Puig believes he has the support system from his Los Angeles Dodgers teammates and the club to keep his focus on baseball despite challenges off the field.

Puig returned to the starting lineup in right field for Thursday’s series finale against the Giants amid news reports that smugglers who helped him defect from Cuba threatened his life.

While Puig can’t address the details specifically because of a pending legal case, he said he will focus on baseball and on helping the defending NL West champion Dodgers keep winning.
