Right field in Major League Baseball hosts a wide range of talent, but Dodgers manager Don Mattingly believes he coaches the best in Yasiel Puig. "We feel like, right now, Yasiel is the best right fielder in baseball," Mattingly told the LA Times on Monday. "This guy dominates right field." Puig, 23, is batting .345 with 10 home runs and 38 RBI in 46 games for the Dodgers this year. The 6-foot-2, 235-pound specimen boasts impressive numbers, but a handful of right fielders might take exception to Mattingly's claim. The Marlins' Giancarlo Stanton, for example, leads all major league right fielders with 15 home runs, 49 RBI and a .622 slugging percentage. The Rangers' Alex Rios has the most hits (64), triples (5) and steals (nine). And the Giants' Hunter Pence leads all right fielders with 38 runs scored.
