Puig victim of another robbery.
The home of Los Angeles Dodgers star outfielder Yasiel Puig was reportedly burglarized last night during Game 7 of the World Series at Dodger Stadium. The culprit reportedly grabbed some of Puig's jewelry but all of it was caught on surveillance tape.
According to TMZ Sports, the burglar busted a window in Puig's San Fernando Valley home to get in, which set off an alarm, though that did not deter him from snagging some valuables before fleeing the scene. As of now it's unclear how much jewelry was taken.
This isn't the first time that Yasiel Puig has been the victim of a robbery. Earlier this year burglars ransacked one of his home for nearly $500,000 worth of jewelry. According to TMZ, Puig's San Fernando Valley home that was robbed during Game 7 is a different residence than the one that was hit back in March.
Not only did Puig end his night speaking with police about his stolen jewelry, but he and his teammates also came up short in Game 7 of the World Series, falling to the Houston Astros 5-1. Puig went 0-for-3 at the plate on Wednesday and he batted just .148 with two home runs and four RBIs during the seven-game World Series.
According to Spotrac, the 26-year old slugger signed a seven year / $42,000,000 contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers, including a $12,000,000 signing bonus, $42,000,000 guaranteed, and an annual average salary of $6,000,000. In 2018, Puig will earn a base salary of $7,500,000, while carrying a cap hit of $9,214,285. He's due to be an unrestricted free agent following the 2018 season.
Despite being the victim of another home robbery, the good news for Puig and his Dodger teammates, is that they are early favorites to win the 2018 World Series.
