Recent reports have indicated that the two-time defending National League champion Los Angeles Dodgers
Dodgers and Reds are discussing deals, some of which include Yasiel Puig. If it happens Puig would be reunited with hitting coach Turner Ward for more kisses. #puigyourfriend— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) December 12, 2018
Puig is said to be "disgruntled" with his current role in LA, as he was unhappy with being platooned in right field during 2018. While the 28-year-old is one year away from free agency, it would make sense for the Dodgers to trade him if he is indeed not a fan of his current role.
With Puig most likely being dealt this offseason, this clears up an outfield slot for the Dodgers to pursue free agent outfielder Bryce Harper.
Sources confirm a band of #Dodgers personnel spearheaded By Magic Johnson headed to Vegas to recruit Bryce Harper. In addition to Magic, the crew included Doc, bench coach Bob Geren, new hitting coach Robert Van Scoyoc, and Andrew Friedman to name a few #HotStove #BryceToLA— Chris Camello (@Chris_Camello) December 4, 2018
If he gets to be with his bro Ward again, Puig in Cincinnati wouldn't be a bad fit.
Selling him on Skyline Chili, however, might not be as easy.
