According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, Yasiel Puig has hired Cesar Suarez and Danny Horwits of Beverly Hills Sports Council as his new agents.
The change comes after the Wasserman Agency announced back in February that they had terminated their relationship with Puig. One report suggested that they cut ties due to something behavioral. According to Heyman, Puig chose his new representation after interviewing several candidates. The 28-year-old is making $7.5 million this season and is two years away from free agency.

Yasiel Puig hit a two-run single in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.

The runs batted in were a rare sight for the outfielder, who has just four on the year after doubling his total Sunday. He did the damage with a bases-loaded single off Zack Godley in the third inning. It's been a quiet year all around for the 27-year-old, who's hitting just .222/.283/.296 without a homer in his first 14 games.
Apr 15 - 8:08 PM

Yasiel Puig is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Athletics.

Puig's day off is the first of the 2018 season. Matt Kemp will play in right, with Chris Taylor in center and Joc Pederson completing the outfield trio in left. It's been a rough start of the season for Puig, who is hitting just .209 with a .511 OPS over his first 10 games of the campaign.
Apr 11 - 6:25 PM

Yasiel Puig went 2-for-5 with a run scored in Sunday's extra-innings win over the Giants.

Puig collected a couple of singles, scoring the game's first run in the fourth inning. Offense has been hard to come by for the 27-year-old thus far, as he's 8-for-39 without a homer through nine games. He's hitting .205/.256/.256 on the year.
Apr 8 - 9:21 PM

Yasiel Puig had a nice night at the dish in Sunday's victory over the Giants, going 3-for-4 with a double and a pair of runs scored.

He also drove in a run with an RBI double off of Giants' starter Chris Stratton in the sixth inning, increasing the Dodgers' lead to 2-0. He's hitting .231 with two RBI through the season's first four games.
Apr 1 - 11:32 PM

Yasiel Puig belted his third home run of the spring as the Dodgers topped the Angels on Sunday night in Los Angeles.

Puig got the Dodgers on the board with an RBI groundout in the fifth inning, then crushed a solo homer off of Osmer Morales in the seventh. He finished the night 1-for-3 plus a walk. Puig is hitting .348 with a 1.049 OPS and 13 RBI during his impressive spring.
Mar 26 - 12:36 AM

Yasiel Puig went 2-for-3 with two doubles and drove in four runs in an 8-2 victory over the Athletics in the Cactus League on Tuesday.

Puig now has his batting average for the Cactus League up to .289, and he has six doubles so far in Arizona. He somewhat quietly had a strong 2017 campaign (28 homers, 15 steals), and at 27 years old he could be entering his prime. There have always been fits of inconsistency, but the overall body of work should make Puig worth a starting spot in a fantasy outfield in 2018.
Mar 20 - 7:13 PM

Yasiel Puig was scratched from Friday's Cactus League lineup due to hip soreness.

Puig was breaking in a new pair of cleats and it's believed that's what caused his hip soreness. He's expected to play Saturday.
Feb 23 - 12:19 PM

Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports that Yasiel Puig is no longer represented by the Wasserman Group.

Chris Cotillo of SB Nation hears it was the Wasserman Group's choice to terminate the relationship, and that the decision was "behavior-related." There are no reports yet as to what incident might have caused the breakup. The 27-year-old outfielder is due $7.5 million in 2018 and will then be eligible for arbitration for one more year before reaching free agency after the 2019 season.
Feb 7 - 4:42 PM

Alex Speier of the Boston Globe reports that the Dodgers floated the idea of a Yasiel Puig-for-Jackie Bradley trade earlier this offseason.

Speier writes that the Red Sox "quickly declined, so there were never any substantive conversations to advance a possible exchange." Bradley has been mentioned in trade rumors this winter as Boston seeks more offense, but president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski has shot down reports that the outfielder is being shopped. It's hard to imagine the Dodgers being anxious to deal Puig, either, following a season when he hit .263/.346/.487 with 28 homers and played Gold Glove-level defense.

Yasiel Puig clubbed a two-run homer in the ninth inning on Sunday, but the Dodgers still fell short against the Astros in Game 5 of the World Series.

Puig's two-run shot off of Chris Devenski trimmed the deficit to one run at 12-11, and ignited a three-run rally that forced extra innings. Puig finished the night 1-for-5 with a pair of strikeouts.

Yasiel Puig went 1-for-4 and drove in a run in Friday's World Series Game 3 loss to the Astros.

In the fourth inning he smacked a single to left field but was thrown out at second base after an ill-advised attempt to stretch the single into a double. In the sixth frame he came to the plate with runners on second and third and brought a run home with a ground-out to the second baseman. He is now 2-for-12 in the World Series.

Yasiel Puig had two hits and three runs scored Thursday in Game 5 against the Cubs.

Puig hit .389 and led the Dodgers by scoring six runs in the five-game series. Only four players started all five games for the Dodgers, but those four ended up with OPSs of 1.247 (Chris Taylor), 1.145 (Justin Turner), .893 (Cody Bellinger) and 1.111 (Puig).

Yasiel Puig hit a solo home run and added an RBI double as the Dodgers bested the Cubs 5-2 Saturday in Game 1 of the NLCS.

Puig's RBI double in the fifth inning got the Dodgers on the board, and a solo homer in the seventh gave the team some breathing room. The homer was the first this postseason for Puig, but the 26-year-old now has six RBI in four games this October. He's hitting a robust .500 (7-for-14) and will be a big part of how far the Dodgers go in the playoffs.

Yasiel Puig went 2-for-5 and drove in two runs during Friday's playoff win over the Diamondbacks.

He punched an RBI double in the first inning and plated a second RBI with a groundout in the fourth. He led off the seventh inning with a triple but was left stranded. Puig had a bounce-back season with a .263 batting average, 28 home runs and 74 RBI.
