Yasiel Puig is in a lot of demands as the MLB free agency deadline is coming closer. The 28-year-old player from the team of Cincinnati Reds got an amazing talent with his bat. Reds team didn’t have that good of the last season, and it didn’t make any sense for Puig to stay there any longer.
He had an average of .358/.397/.657 in the last month and a fantastic defense too. Here are the free agency deals of Yasiel with Yankees, Athletics, Indians, and Phillies.
New York Yankees
The Yankees are actively looking for new players in the free agency and are in talks with the top MLB pitchers. Giancarlo Stanton, the star hitter of the New York team will take some time to recover from his recent injury. In such a situation, the Yankees can use Yasiel Puig as a replacement for Stanton. The Yankees have enough cash to keep Puig around even after the recovery and everyone would love to see that.
Seriously, how can anyone like Yasiel Puig? I hate everything about this guy. He might be the only player who, if he played for the Yankees or Cubs, I’d still hate him. There is no way I could root for this guy

Stephen Piscotty from the Athletics is injured since a few time back and was even not hitting that good while he was healthy. Mark Canha has been playing decent, but Oakland still needs someone like Yasiel Puig. The A’s have a chance for the wild card spot, and to do that, they need power hitters. Puig can do that for the Athletics, and a deal will benefit both the players and team.

Oscar Mercado and Tyler Naquin are some of the outfielders in the Indians team, but they are not doing any good. The Indians needs someone talented and young like Yasiel Puig, which can both hit and defend them. Cleveland team has a lot of chances in the future, and a deal with Puig can make it easier for them to secure them.

Jay Bruce was added to the Phillies team as an injury replacement for Andrew McCutchen, who now himself has got injured. Puig can play in both the left and right field, which is exactly the Phillies needs right now. The Phillies are very close to making it to the payoffs and Puig is the perfect player which can help in the games.
