Yasiel Puig will make his first trip to Dodger Stadium since being traded on Monday, and it’s fair to say he’s feeling motivated.
Puig didn’t hide his desire to get a measure of revenge on his former team as the Cincinnati Reds visit the Los Angeles Dodgers for their series this week.
“We’re going to Los Angeles, and we need to be prepared to beat my old teammates,” Puig said, via Mark Sheldon of MLB.com. “It’s going to be a lot of people there [who have] been waiting for Puig, Matt Kemp, [Kyle] Farmer, and Alex Wood is not here, but everybody expects a lot and been waiting for us to go back. We’re excited to go back.”
