Yasiel Puig Not Happy With Gold Glove Snub, Guarantees One Next Year

Published

on

Yasiel Puig of the Los Angeles Dodgers was really hoping for his first career Gold Glove Award last night as the hardware was presented for both leagues.

Instead, the National League right field honor went to Chicago Cubs’ Jason Heyward for the fourth year in a row.

Puig wasn’t thrilled:

Heyward played in almost 300 less innings defensively than Puig, but still matched Puig with 18 defensive runs saved according to FanGraphs.

As far as fielding percentage in right field, Puig had the advantage at .996 (1 error in 264 chances) over Heyward’s .991 (2 errors in 214 chances).

Puig, 26, is entering the final season of a seven-year, $42 million contract with the Dodgers. If guaranteeing a Gold Glove win is his way of hyping himself up, then by all means. I support it. We all know how much of a character Puig is, and this is no different.

Considering how much more Puig played than Heyward in 2017, he probably should’ve won. I don’t blame him for his tweet. Heyward already had won the award four times, as well as three years in a row before yesterday. Why not give it to someone new and deserving? The coaches and managers who voted for the winners definitely botched this one, in my opinion.

While Harper is eyeing a long-term contract, the Dodgers may be angling with a short-term deal, which makes their involvement, and Harper’s engaging with them, interesting.
