Yasiel Puig returned to Los Angeles on Monday for the first time since the Dodgers traded him to the Reds this past offseason.

The occasion sparked emotions on both sides and served as an opportunity for people around the league to take the temperature of his career to this point.

Over the weekend, the Los Angeles Times published a story containing several critical quotes on Puig from his former teammates, such as shortstop Corey Seager saying, “Not really, without, like, bashing him” when asked if he had a favorite story on the outfielder.

Yasiel Puig is the man in LA right now. After a slow start, he 's found his groove, but what's most important is that he 's having a great time doing it . The quick hug at the end is pretty much the closer it certainly clears up any questions as to what Yasiel does after games are over.

The piece also included accusations Puig would purposefully ignore coaching instructions on where to stand in the outfield, going so far as to rip up guiding note cards meant to help him in front of Dodgers’ staff.

Still, he was greeted by loud cheers from a fan base that has always been enamored by his positive qualities — voracious base running, a cannon arm and a knack for coming through in epic moments.

Yasiel Puig Reveals Why He Charged at Francisco Cervelli During Pirates-Reds Brawl

Yasiel Puig Reveals Why He Charged at Francisco Cervelli During Pirates-Reds Brawl ​The ​Cincinnati Reds and ​Pittsburgh Pirates engaged in a ​benches-clearing brawl on Sunday after Chris Archer threw a pitch behind Derek Dietrich. Both teams got in each others faces and blows were exchanged. One noteworthy aspect of the brawl was Yasiel Puig's involvement, as he went after catcher Francisco Cervelli, among others, during the scrap. Puig has since revealed why he targeted Cervelli, claiming the Pirates' backstop verbally provoked him, per Reds' insider Bobby Nightengale. Puig says that Cervelli said something to him, which is why he charged after him amid the altercation.

Los Angeles Dodgers traded RF Yasiel Puig , LF Matt Kemp, LHP Alex Wood, C Kyle Farmer and cash to Cincinnati Reds for RHP Homer Bailey, SS Jeter Downs and RHP Josiah Gray.

Yasiel Puig validated his claim he ’s “the most dramatic player in Major League Baseball,’’ toggling between colorful remarks and the company line. LOS ANGELES — Wearing a T-shirt prominently displaying his face — mouth open, tongue wagging — Yasiel Puig once again demonstrated why

Floyd said Puig might be in a better place now that he’s with Cincinnati. Floyd believed the trade from LA could have been a wake-up call for someone whose effort has at times been questioned.

“For me, I’ve always felt like Puig didn’t maximize everything with his potential,” Floyd said. “Me personally, I felt like Cincinnati was the best fit for him in terms of the division, ballpark and they needed some excitement, something different to come through those doors every day.”

Indeed, Puig was supposed to invigorate a Reds squad that finished last in the NL Central in 2018. So far, though, he hasn’t broken out, and neither have his teammates. Entering Monday, Cincinnati was 5-9 and Puig was hitting .163.

Perhaps his second dinger of the year, coming against his old club, will spark a torrid stretch that lifts his new one.

Or maybe we’ll continue to wait for a sustained run of dominance from Puig that at age 28 could never come.
