Yasiel Puig has hit seven home runs in his first month with the Dodgers since getting called on June 3rd. Five of those have gone to the opposite field, showing just how much of the plate Puig covers and how much strength is behind his swing. On Sunday night against the Phillies, Puig had two singles, a double and a triple. He is currently batting .436 in 26 games, with seven home runs, 12 RBI, four stolen bases and 19 runs.
Puig has 44 hits in his first month, second only to Joe DiMaggio’s 48 in May of 1936.
