Outside The Confines: Yasiel Puig finds a home.

Photo by Scott Taetsch/ The electrifying outfielder will be Atlanta-bound. A question that has been lingering since before baseball was shut down finally has an answer: Where will Yasiel Puig play in 2020? For a time it seemed as if the electrifying outfielder might go unsigned for the year in spite of his general skill. The Atlanta Braves, down one outfielder with the opt-out of Nick Markakis, were the ones to snap Puig up from the free agent market. Last season Puig hit .267/.327/.458 between two clubs last season, but really shined in the latter half with the Cleveland Indians,...

On defense, he made the odd error, 9 to that point, for a .975 fielding average. Yunel was also personally not well liked by the Braves manager, players, or, for that matter, fans.
