Aug 14, 2013; Los Angeles, CA, USA;    Los Angeles Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig (66) heads for home to score the winning run in the twelfth inning against the New York Mets at Dodger Stadium. Dodgers won 5-4. Mandatory Credit: Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY SportsAnother day, another ridiculous highlight from Yasiel Puig.

Here are a few facts about the Cuban outfielder who has taken the Dodgers by storm:
  • In 63 games, he has a .368/.340/.583 line
  • His 162-game average stats would be: 229 hits, 28 HR, 69 RBI (surprisingly low, actually), and 121 runs.
  • Before his debut, the Dodgers were 23-32 and 8.5 games out of first place in the NL West. Since Puig joined the team, the Dodgers have gone 47-18 and are 7.5 games ahead of the 2nd place Diamondbacks.
His latest incredible play was when he threw out Marlon Byrd at 3rd base with an absolute laser from right field.

Oh, and he also scored the winning run in the 12th inning. This guy is insane.
