Puig has added the walk to his repetiore

Puig has fifteen walks in August which made me run a search to find out how many Dodgers had at least fifteen walks since Puig started playing baseball in 2013.

Some surprising findings:

  • This only the second time in his career that he has gotten at least fifteen walks in a month.
  • Adrian Gonzalez has only done it once since 2013 despite playing every day until this year.
  • Yazmani Grandal has only done it once despite a reputation as a patient/power hitter.
  • Hanley Ramirez only did it once
  • Justin Turner has only done it once
  • Chris Taylor has only done it once but this is his first full-time season.
  • Corey Seager has done it twice this year
  • Joc Pederson currently playing in AAA has done it five times but four of those five times came back in 2015.

I expected more. Much more.

    Puig looks like a pro when at the plate now.
    Going to the plate with a plan
    Focused on the next pitch
    Seeing, tracking the baseball
    no more silly movements between pitches or after ABs after a SO.

    Yesterday AB Puig reminded me of Beltre the way he was setting up and waiting for the pitch.

    It is quite a change.
