Puig did not disappoint. He got his first major league hit as he looped a ball to centerfield in his first at bat and later had a seeing eye single to right field. He did not look overmatched at all during any of his at bats as he finished with the two hits in four plate appearances. Puig also showcased his speed as he ran the basepaths.
In the field, he showed off his arm twice as he made strong throws to 2nd base and home plate. Both base runners were called safe despite Puig's well thrown balls. It was Puig's third and final throw that people will be talking about. With one out and one man on in
Puig displayed four out of the five tools all in his major league debut. I know this is just one game, but I am sure the rest of major league baseball took notice. Especially made a note not run on Puig's arm. Puig will eventually have bad games and struggle as everyone else. He would have to make adjustments to their opposition's gameplans, but I have no doubt he will as he showed maturity and athleticsm to do so. He also may be back in the minors soon when Crawford and Kemp are ready to play again. But right now, Yasiel Puig made his major league debut one that will be remembered for awhile.
