The baseball career of Yasiel Puig has been quite the whirlwind. After once being on the path to stardom, Puig has been traded twice in the last two years and now finds himself without a team.

It wasn’t too long ago that Yasiel Puig launched a three-run blast in game four of the 2018 World Series seemingly putting the Dodgers back in the series on the way to a 2-2 series tie.  Unfortunately for Puig and the Dodgers, the Dodgers blew their 4-0 lead and eventually lost the World Series four games to one.

The 2018 World Series would be the last time that Puig played for the Dodgers as he was traded in December of 2018 to the Cincinnati Reds in a blockbuster deal that also sent Matt Kemp and Alex Wood to the Reds.

Puig went on to play 100 games for the Reds, hitting 22 home runs and batting .252 before he was traded again to the Cleveland Indians.

Yasiel played well in 49 games with the Tribe as he slashed .297/.377/.423 and finished out his contract year in fine fashion.  Ever since the season ended, however, things have not worked out in Yasiel’s favor.

Although some teams have shown interest, and reportedly even made an offer, Puig found himself without a team even before the season was postponed due to COVID-19.

At some point, whether it’s 2020 or 2021, baseball will resume and these are the three teams that would be a great fit for the “Wild Horse”.
