Is Yasiel Puig’s career over? They close the doors in Korea

Yasiel Puig would not return to the Kiwoom Heroes for the 2023 Season of the Korean Baseball Organization League (KBO). This because it was revealed that the team with which he made his debut on this circuit has decided not to renew his contract. This situation has opened the way to the questioning of what is next for the Cuban in the baseball.

Journalist Sung Min Kim reported via Twitter that the Kiwoom Heroes have made the decision not to explore re-signing Yasiel Puig after he spent the 2022 Korean League Season with them.

The Cienfuegos, Cuba native saw action in 126 KBO games with the Heroes. In them he managed to put his batting average at .277. Additionally, he hit 21 home runs and drove in 73 runs for his team.

The outfielder tried his luck on the Asian circuit after playing with the Águila de Veracruz of the Mexican Baseball League (LMB) in 2021. The Jarocha organization continues with its rights of return and could be a possibility for its future.

Yasiel Puig has not participated in Major League Baseball (MLB) since the 2019 season when he was part of the Cincinnati Reds. This would be due to the legal situations that he has filed against him.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, beginning a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is mainly managed by men. Bachelor of Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball in the Mexican Baseball League (LMB). ), Mexican Pacific League (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Serie del Rey. I have done work for social networks such as coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social networks, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was at a Leones de Yucatán game, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team I love and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, at the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
