Yasiel Puig enters tonight’s action having reached base 10 times in his past 14 plate appearances, with three doubles, a homer and a walk. But the Dodger right fielder has been challenged by San Diego’s Petco Park in his short career.
Puig’s .273 on-base percentage and .345 slugging percentage in Legoland country aren’t terrible, but they are his poorest totals at any location where he’s had more than 20 plate appearances.
Since hitting a homer and single on April Fool’s Day 2014, Puig is 3 for 29 at San Diego with four walks, an HBP and 10 strikeouts. In 2014 road games overall, Puig had an .894 OPS.
