Puig profile; top 10 prospects
Prospects don't come with much more intrigue than Los Angeles Dodgers youngster Yasiel Puig. Scouts noted his power potential, speed and arm strength even well before he defected from Cuba.
However, there also has been plenty of uncertainty about Puig. He missed the 2011-12 season in Cuba's professional league (the Serie Nacional de Beisbol) after getting suspended either because he was considered a potential defector or because he was arrested on shoplifting charges during a tournament in the Netherlands in June 2011. There was a circus atmosphere to his workouts, with confusion as to his agent situation and where he would put his talents on display, which left several talent evaluators frustrated.
To see Jim's profile on Yasiel Puig and his top 10 prospects for 2013, you must be an ESPN Insider.
