Cuban outfielder Yasiel Puig has had intense months in order to return to the Major Leagues, a scenario in which he has not played, officially, for two seasons. Solution to his legal issues, change of agent and return to the game in the winter leagues, have been some of the actions carried out by the Cienfuegos to seek to fulfill his objective.
However, according to recent statements by the player and his representative, the Cuban-American Lisette Carnet, still no Big Car franchise has been interested in Puig’s services with a view to the 2022 MLB season, so they were looking for options in the Asian market, mainly in the Korean League (KBO).
