LOS ANGELES (AP) - The newest hot, young thing in Los Angeles is a guy you can't take your eyes off of. He's well-built, with a winning smile and engaging personality. He doesn't say a lot, preferring to let his performance speak for him.
Hollywood isn't after him yet, but if Yasiel Puig (Yah-SEE-el Pweeg) keeps this up, opportunities will surely come calling.
Fittingly, the Los Angeles Dodgers rookie plays for a team co-owned by Magic Johnson, a guy who knew a thing or two about showmanship and style during his NBA days.
The 22-year-old right fielder has shown plenty of both while creating a buzz that had been missing at Chavez Ravine so far this season. Puig was batting .464 with a .964 slugging percentage going into Monday night's game against Arizona.
