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, showing he still had some reliable power. The Braves will also be looking to add a DH for the coming season and Puig could be a solid fit for them there.
