A familiar face sees himself one day returning to Los Angeles.
Yasiel Puig talked with CBS Los Angeles at his Wild Horse Foundation Event to discuss about possibly playing in the United States and maybe returning to the Dodgers.
We are going to do everything we can to come back to the United States and hopefully with a god given an opportunity one day come back to the Dodgers.
Over his seven years in the majors, he posted a solid .277/.348/.475 batting line, hitting 132 homers and 159 doubles, but was eventually was out of the major leagues.
When Yasiel Puig debuted with the Dodgers in 2013, he became an instant celebrity in Los Angeles and a fan favorite. He had one of the most ridiculous call-up weeks in the history of baseball, nightly producing highlight reels from his on-field efforts. Puig also became known more for his antics than his performance. He was considered a hothead, something that he did not exactly disprove.
Now at 31 years old, Yasiel Puig hopes to see himself one day back in Major League Baseball and possibly back with the team he made a name with.
