Here's meat of what #Dodgers mgr Don Mattingly said about Puig's slow learning curve on nuances of game:
“These are the things we talked about in spring training when you (reporters) were asking, ‘Why not bring him up (to the majors)?’” Mattingly said. “There are mistakes you don’t want to see. But you take the good with the bad and there’s a lot of good. He’s a ball of energy. And he’s a good kid too. He goes 0 for 4 and we win – he’s as happy as anybody out there. You see him high-fiving and cheering. Those are all good traits.
“There are things he’s got to improve. But the guy loves to win. He loves playing and it’s great to see that. That’s a good energy to have on your team.”
