Rockies, White Sox The Front-Runners For Yasiel Puig

The Colorado Rockies and Chicago White Sox have emerged as the front-runners to sign outfielder Yasiel Puig. Puig is easily the biggest name left on the free-agent market, but he could have a home soon. Landing with either team would be enticing from a fantasy point of view, but the main question would be how much playing time would Puig receive? The often misunderstood outfielder from Cuba can certainly help any club with his speed and power at the plate and electric arm in the outfield. Both home parks for the Rockies and White Sox are great hitting environments, too, so Puig could excel in either location. The 29-year-old is a fine target in the middle rounds for his upside despite not having a home yet this spring.

Giants Interested In Yasiel Puig

The San Francisco Giants have interest in outfielder Yasiel Puig, according to sources. President of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi has familiarity with Puig from their time together with the Dodgers. The 29-year-old power-speed guy would have a good shot at regular playing time in San Francisco, but the pitcher-friendly environment in the bay wouldn't help Puig's numbers from a power perspective. In 555 at-bats between the Reds and Indians in 2019, Puig slashed .267/.327/.458 with 24 home runs and career highs in RBI (84) and stolen bases (19). The Cuban outfielder is definitely worth a flier in the later rounds for his power and speed, depending on where he winds up.

Rays Showing Interest In Yasiel Puig

The Tampa Bay Rays have shown interest in outfielder Yasiel Puig, but it's unclear how serious their interest is. Puig played in 149 games with the Reds and Indians in 2019 and hit .267/.327/.458 with 24 home runs and set career highs in RBI (84) and stolen bases (19) in 555 at-bats. He's still on the right side of 30 and his mix of power and speed is enticing to real MLB teams and fantasy owners, but it's unclear exactly how he might fit in with an already crowded outfield picture in Tampa. The Rays already have Kevin Kiermaier, Austin Meadows, Hunter Renfroe and Yoshitomo Tsutsugo in their outfield, so Puig might be relegated to a part-time role if he were to sign with the Rays.
