Don't go overboard for Yasiel Puig

6/4/2013

Fantasy owners sure love the prospects, the constant temptation of the unknown with potentially Trout-ian upside, so it was hardly surprising that one optimistic Tweet after another flowed in Monday asking about how otherworldly new Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig would be. Among the outfielders in my timeline people offered up as potential waiver-wire bait included accomplished veterans B.J. Upton, Melky Cabrera, Andre Ethier and yes, even the once-great Josh Hamilton. Never mind that Puig, who made his big league debut Monday night after a mere 40 games at Double-A Chattanooga, is likely not ready for superstardom quite yet.
