Wow. What an amazing way to end ones big league debut. It was a perfect throw, too, especially considering his momentum was carrying him to the right field corner.
Oh, and Puig went 2-for-4 with a two singles as the Dodgers' leadoff hitter. He flared one into left-center field in his first at-bat, grounded out in his second, singled off the first baseman's glove in his third and hit into a fielder's choice in his fourth.
He showed plus speed (going from first-to-third on a hit that maybe Carl Crawford could do if healthy) and plus arm strength in his debut. He was out in front of nearly everything tonight, indicating he was pretty amped up. He'll tone it down as he plays more.
Puig is going to have to try really hard to not remain in Los Angeles when the Crawford and Matt Kemp get healthy. If I'm Andre Ethier, I'm pretty uncomfortable right now.
