Dodgers Unlikely To Trade Yasiel Puig

Nov 23, 2015 8:27 AM

The Los Angeles Dodgers appear unlikely to trade Yasiel Puig this offseason.

Rumors continue to swirl that Puig may be on the move, but Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times points out that the outfielder's stock is extremely low. Puig played in just 79 games this past season, twice landing on the disabled list.

Puig is also relatively inexpensive and under control for at least four more seasons.
