Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"You don't see this very often. Not like this. He (Yasiel Puig) brings energy, and you can feel it. It's hard to deny that. He definitely brings an energy. I don't think we can put everything on him, but it's been pretty exciting to watch." - Los Angeles Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly on ESPNLosAngeles.com (Arash Markazi, 06/09/2013, Yasiel Puig: This young, this raw, this good , Source )

Did you know that when Yasiel Puig won National League Player of the Week (June 3, 2013 / June 9, 2014) he became the first rookie to win for his debut week since Manny Machado ? Here is the MLB Press Release describing his debut week performance:

Yasiel Puig named National League Player of the Week

Puig made his Major League debut on Monday, June 3rd, going 2-for-4 in the Dodgers leadoff slot while recording his first outfield assist in game-ending fashion, doubling-up San Diego's Chris Denorfia at first base with a throw from deep right field to preserve a 2-1 victory. Puig became the first Dodger to record a multi-hit performance in his first big league game since Russell Martin went 2-for-4 in his debut on May 5, 2006 .

On Tuesday, Puig went 3-for-4 with a double, two home runs and five RBI in his second Major League contest, leading the Dodgers to a 9-7 win over the visiting Padres . According to Elias Sports Bureau, Puig joined Dino Restelli as the only players in Major League history to have recorded a two-homer, five-RBI game within the first two games of his career. Restelli accomplished the feat on June 15, 1949 as a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates .

On Thursday, Puig went 2-for-4 with a home run and four RBI on the way to a 5-0 victory in the first game of a four-game set with the N.L. East-leading Atlanta Braves. The young phenom clubbed his first career grand slam in the bottom of the eighth inning, giving the Dodger bullpen a five-run cushion as they closed out a 7.0-inning scoreless performance by starter Zack Greinke .

In Friday's matchup between the two clubs, Puig's game-tying solo homer in the sixth inning was the only run the Dodgers scored off Braves starter Paul Maholm in an eventual 2-1 extra-inning victory for Los Angeles . With the homer, Puig became just the second player since 1900 to hit four home runs in his first five games, joining Mike Jacobs of the 2005 New York Mets (Elias Sports Bureau). The solo shot gave Puig 10 RBI through his first five career games, tying a Major League record (also: Washington's Danny Espinosa in 2010 and Pittsburgh's Jack Merson in 1951).

Did you know after that first week mentioned above, Puig continued to have an amazing month eventually winning the Player of the Month for June AND the Rookie of the Month ? Puig was the fifth player to win BOTH a Rookie of the Month Award and a Player or Pitcher of the Month Award in the same month, joining Dontrelle Willis (June 2003), Ryan Braun (July 2007), Jeremy Hellickson (May 2011) and Mike Trout (July 2012). Puig, however, was the first player in baseball history to win a Player of the Month Award in his first month in the big leagues since the award was instituted in 1958 !

On July 25, 2014 , Yasiel Puig hit three triples in a game , the first time a player from the Los Angeles Dodgers had three triples in a game (and only the second instance in franchise history, Jimmy Sheckard had three in a game for the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 18, 1901).

When Joe DiMaggio made his Major Legue debut, he collected 48 hits during his first month - the most in baseball history. Yasiel Puig finished his first month with 44 hits, second most in baseball history (behind The Yankee Clipper ), breaking the Dodgers ' franchise record for most hits by a rookie in one month, held previously by Steve Sax .
