Yasiel Puig mania at Chavez Ravine is in full effect these days and he ended his phenomenal first month in the major leagues with his first four-hit game. Puig finished June with 44 hits for the second-most in a player's first month in the major leagues. Joe DiMaggio had 48 in May 1936. Puig went 4-for-5 with a triple and two stolen bases Sunday against the Phillies. Puig continues to stay hot as he now owns a .436 batting average. When Carl Crawford returns from the disabled list there is no way Puig will be the one sitting down. Look for Andre Ethier and Matt Kemp to share playing time in center field and the one that is swinging the hotter bat will get the playing time. Puig's hot streak is incredible and talk of MVP-MVP could soon be echoing throughout Los Angeles.
