Dreams of Yasiel Puig are dead, for now

After months of speculation, it turns out that Yasiel Puig will not be signing with the San Francisco Giants. The outfielder — who is either one of the most hated rivals or one of the most lovable former Los Angeles Dodgers depending on your outlook — is signing with the Atlanta Braves.

The signing was first reported by MLB’s Mark Feinsand.

Puig had been rumored to be in discussions with the Giants at numerous times during the offseason, a few more times during Spring Training, and even once or twice during the coronavirus-sponsored season suspension.
