Braves Sign Yasiel Puig

The details of this contract are unknown, although Puig has a career .277 batting average. Puig has previously played for the Dodgers, Indians, and Reds, and he’s known for his fiery personality and his comments on Pedro Strop.

He will look to fill the gap for Nick Markakis for the Braves, who opted out of the 2020 season due to Coronavirus concerns. He will start alongside Ronald Acuna Jr and Ender Inciarte in the outfield, while Marcell Ozuna will take DH.

An update to this article will come when more details — especially contract details — are found out and confirmed.
