The Los Angeles Kings, who were crowned NHL champions last week for the second time in three years, showed up to Dodger Stadium on Tuesday evening with the Stanley Cup and Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig got to spend a moment with the coolest trophy in professional sports …
It’s a safe guess that ice hockey was a foreign concept to the Cuba native before he arrived in the U.S.
Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reported on Monday night that the Blue Jays have signed outfielder Curtis Granderson to a one-year, $5 million deal. The contract is pending a physical and includes performance incentives.
Granderson, who turns 37 years old in March, spent last season with the Mets and Dodgers, batting an aggregate .212/.323/.452 with 26 home runs and 64 RBI in 527 plate appearances. He struggled offensively after going to the Dodgers, mustering a paltry .654 OPS. He went 1-for-15 in the playoffs as well.
The Blue Jays will likely platoon Granderson in the corner outfield. His career OPS is 158 points higher versus right-handed pitchers than against left-handers.
