Yasiel Puig would not return to the Kiwoom Heroes for the 2023 Season of the Korean Baseball Organization League (KBO). This because it was revealed that the team with which he made his debut on this circuit has decided not to renew his contract. This situation has opened the way to questioning what’s next for the Cuban in baseball.
Journalist Sung Min Kim reported via Twitter that the Kiwoom Heroes have made the decision not to explore re-signing Yasiel Puig after he spent the 2022 Korean League Season with them.
The Cienfuegos, Cuba native saw action in 126 KBO games with the Heroes. In them he managed to put his batting average at .277. Additionally, he hit 21 home runs and drove in 73 runs for his team.
The outfielder tried his luck in the Asian circuit after he will play with the Águila de Veracruz of the Mexican Baseball League (LMB) in 2021. The Jarocha organization continues with its rights of return and could be a possibility for its future.
Yasiel Puig has not participated in Major League Baseball (MLB) since the 2019 season when he was part of the Cincinnati Reds. This would be due to the legal situations that he has filed against him.
